Caoimhe wins LMETB Art Competition
The LMETB inaugural Art Competition was launched last October with the intention of showcasing the talents of over 11,000 students in LMETB’s post-primary schools. The judging of the competition was performed by renowned Irish artist Robert Ballagh. Not surprisingly, the talents of Coláiste Chú Chulainn students were well represented at the opening night of the first LMETB Art Exhibition in the Droichead Arts Centre, where not one but three of our students won awards in the Junior Cycle Category.
Caoimhe Kampas, one of Coláiste Chú Chulainn’s founding students, was awarded first place in the Junior Cycle category of the competition and claimed an Ipad and a wonderful selection of Art supplies for her mixed media artwork Visit Earth. Megan Stokes and Princess Airewele both received Special Merit awards for their pieces entitled Paris and Jungle respectively.
‘I am extremely proud of our students’ said art teacher Gareth Ó Luachrain. ‘I have no doubt that we will see many more fantastic artworks from Caoimhe, Princess and Megan in the future’.
