Congratulations to Cathal Walsh from 6th Class in Summercove National School, Co. Cork on being awarded this year’s Overall Winner of the Someone Like Me Art Competition. Cathal’s fantastic entry is a portrait of his twin brother Harry.
Harry recently discovered he has a natural talent for playing the piano and he loves to play Queen, Abba, jazz, pop and the song ‘Piano Man’. Harry was the first-born twin and he was born with a cleft lip and palate. He has had five operations however Cathal says that his twin brother lets nothing stop him and he dreams of being a dentist when he grows up! The two brothers are great friends and really enjoyed exploring their love for art and music. Well done Cathal!
Well done to 1st & 2nd Class from Killeevan N.S. on being awarded this year’s Highly Commended Award for this year’s competition. Their brilliant comic book entry tells the story of 6 superheroes, each with different superpowers. Together, they play a role in saving the day against Covid-19, representing the different strengths and weaknesses of the pupils and how their strengths are often their own unique superpowers. Congratulations to all of the pupils involved!
The National Disability Authority is delighted to announce the launch of the fifth year of “Someone Like Me”, the art competition for primary schools.
