Gintare Polivilatyte accepting her special merit award.
The school year 2015-2016 saw great achievements in Art, Craft and Design. Our first competition was ‘Artist of the Year’ run by the Talbot hotel in Wexford, here we saw a couple of our students accepted and involved in the exhibition. Ciera Sharpe took the 2nd place prize in the Junior certificate category.
We had a number of students enter the 62nd annual Texaco Art competition this year in 2016. Gintare Polivilatyte took home a special merit award and placed within the top 15, this meant she was invited to receive her award in the Royal Kilmainham hospital Dublin. Today FM’s Ian Dempsey was MC for the day and made sure all the students felt proud of themselves as they should do. It was a beautiful day out for the students and families, Gintare’s Class Tutor, Ms Anna Nolan and her Art teacher, Ms Natalie Doyle were lucky enough to secure two extra invitations and proudly watched Gintare accept her award.
That special occasion capped off a creative year here at Enniscorthy Vocational College and here’s hoping to continue our creative streak in the 2016-2017 academic year.
