ART WITH LAR
Lar Griffin, renowned local artist is continuing his long association with Colaiste Eoin by working with the students on a series of art components sponsored by the ETB. Previously Lar worked on a creative engagement project supported by the NAPD and produced some magical mythical murals for the school. The epic work of the past is replaced by butterflies which will adorn the school representing not only the creativity of the students but also their voyage in school. Butterflies fill our world with beauty and are representative of the vitality the students bring to our school. The metamorphosis undergone by caterpillars to butterflies is also truly reflective of the changes we see from teenagers to adults.
Miss Hunt the art teacher has also engaged the students in some creative expression and a piece in development from last year will soon be launched. The students along with Miss Hunt have hand decorated the tiles with the theme of, “Spread Your Wings and Soar”. Both pieces will soon be unveiled to the entire school community.
TY students took the second year students for games as part of their GAA Coaching programme. The programme directed and implemented by Brendan Hayden allows students to become familiar with the skills associated with coaching young people. The programme is very worthwhile.
