Primary School Arts Winners
Each year since the inaugural Summer School in 2014 there has been a Primary School Art Competition where all schools in the locality, wishing to participate, have submitted art work by their pupils in four categories based on the theme of the Summer School for that year.
Before this evening presentation by Tony Lenihan, we will run a short presentation of this years winning artwork in each of the four categories on this years theme of ‘Women who have made a difference’
