23/11/2008 DOODLE FOR GOOGLE SUCCESS FOR LORETO STUDENT

A Year 10 student from Loreto College Coleraine has been named a Northern Ireland Regional Finalist in the 2008 Doodle4Google competition.

From a total of over 70,000 original entries, John’s artwork, which took the theme of children from all over the world building a new future, impressed the judges.  “We were extremely impressed with John’s doodle for its artistic merit, creativity, interpretation of the My Community theme and the supporting statement,” the adjudicator wrote.

John’s supporting statement was: “Children from around the world are all the same.  I have used children rather than adults because children love to play together and have fun.  Children become adults and run the country, so if we have friendship as children we could make the world a peaceful and better place.”

Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated John, his ICT teacher Mr Clarke Rice and his Art & Design teacher Miss Michelle McGarvey on this impressive and exciting achievement.
