01/10/2007 PRESTIGIOUS ART AWARD FOR LORETO STUDENT

Loreto College student Erin Costen (Year 11) has taken first prize in the secondary/grammar schools section of the Save the Children Anti-Bullying poster competition.  Erin's poster, which was completed towards the end of the 2006-2007 academic year, was based on the theme of the prevention of cyber-bullying.  As the winning entrant, Erin has had her poster printed over 3000 times, for display in health centres, on buses and so on.  The displays will mark National Anti-Bullying week, helping to raise awareness of this problematic issue for young people throughout the country.
 
Erin and her teacher, Miss Michelle McGarvey, were congratulated on this tremendous achievement by Mr Paul Cunning, Head of Art and Design at Loreto College, and by Mr Brian Lenehan, College Principal.
