Faughs Schools Art Competition June 2021

The boys in the 4th  classes designed and created art pictures for the ball wall in Faughs G.A.A. club for the annual Faughs community project competition.

The aim of the project was to design something related to Faughs and its history that could be painted onto the ball wall. The winning entry will be painted onto the ball wall in October and the boys who designed it will be given their prizes by the Dublin manager, Mattie Kenny, in September.

Many thanks to Paul Dixon and  his committee for their hard work and their commitment over the years in organising such a brilliant and enjoyable event.

Saint Valentine’s Day

Who receives the most Valentine’s Day cards?

Well rumour has it – teachers do!

Just look at the fabulous digital artwork by our infants above. Below see the beautiful roses and chocolate brownies made by our 5th class boys for their loved ones!

Thank you boys for all the lovely cards, kind words and pictures – we send you all our sweetest, happiest wishes.

National LEGO day January 28th 2021

Research shows that construction toys such as LEGO can improve a wide range of mental aptitudes in children, such as spatial intelligence and hand-eye coordination. LEGO is used to make toy buildings, vehicles, creatures, machines, anything imaginable – and these little plastic bricks can be taken apart and put together as often as you’d like. That means endless creative, fun and educational play. One of our sixth class pupils took some time out from his books to build this fine machine to celebrate National LEGO day.

Harry Clarke Virtual Art Workshop

Third class recently had the opportunity to participate in a virtual workshop with the Hugh Lane Gallery exploring the work “The Eve of St. Agnes” by Harry Clarke. The artist Megan Scott provided a very interesting introduction to the work of Harry Clarke. The Gallery sent us sketch pads where we used Harry Clarke’s stained glass window “The Eve of St. Agnes” to inspire our own sketches. Meghan then taught us the technique of sgraffito to create our very own stained glass windows.
