28/11/2008 LORETO ARTISTS PUTTING TALENTS TO A GOOD CAUSE

A group of young artists from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, has been busy with a design brief recently, with the aim of helping others in mind.

Students from Years 8-10 took part in the College’s annual Christmas card design competition, with a large number of entries received in the race to design the College’s official 2008 Christmas cards, which will be sold in support of the Loreto College St Vincent de Paul youth group.

The winning card designers were Theresa McIlwaine, Rebecca McKillen, Brogan Mailey and Caitlin Richardson (Year 8), Paige Browne, Caoimhe Cooke, Mark Gormley, Fergus Kelly, Shannon O’Kane, Roisin Parahoo and Tara Stewart (Year 9), and Marie Claire Nellis (Year 10).

Mr Paul Cunning, Head of Art and Design at Loreto College, paid tribute to all the winning artists, commenting that choosing winners from a strong field of entries had been a difficult task.  Mr Brian Lenehan, College Principal, thanked the students for their support of the competition and of the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
