JSS Lands Two Arts Grants!

Creative Engagement Arts Grants

The school as been successful in getting two Creative Engagement Arts Grants funded by the Department of Arts and Department of Education and Skills.

Ms. Sinead Sweeny (Art teacher) has been successful in getting a grant of €1200 to create a school wall Mosaic with the help of artist Conor O’Brien. The aim of the project is to heighten the awareness of community/team spirit within our school

Ms. Nell Smyth (Drama teacher), with Ms Sinead Sweeny and Ms. Liz Byrne, have been successful in getting a grant of €1500 to fund the development of a film based on the recreation of an ‘An Abduction’ inspired by the kidnapping theme in Artemis Fowl. The aim of the project is to develop enthusiasm for performance and imaginative expression.

Both grants need to be matched by the school and funds raised from the Christmas Fair will be used for this purpose.
