Congrats to third class students, Tara Geoghegan, Anie Maguire, Sam Maguire, Odhrán Kelleher and Rory Dolan on being chosen as the senior category winners for Cavan in the 'Someone Like Me' art competition organised by the Department of Justice and Equality. 

This aim of this competition was to develop children’s understanding of disabilities and to help them celebrate the aspects that make them and their classmates unique. The team created a papier-mâché piece entitled 'Circle of Friends'. More info on the project can be found in 'Classroom News'. There were over 2000 entries and our school was among the 45 national schools to receive an award at the National Awards Ceremony in Dublin City Hall on December 4th.
