During the month of November the council organised an art competition for the whole school. The theme was "Animals" and entries were invited in both 2D and 3D formats. We had an unprecedented number of entries and the council could not believe the high standard in both the junior and senior sections. Judging such an array of entries was no easy task and the council spent three lunch times deciding on the winners. Great credit is due to all those who took part in the competition.

They come up with their own ideas to enhance their learning and to become a real part of it themselves. So far, they have suggested a Friendship Post, an Open Mic opportunity and an art competition.
The council recently ran the Art Competition in the school. The closing date was Friday, February 6th.
