Winning Card Designers with Y14 SVDP group & Mr P Cunning, Head of Art

As Christmas approaches, the annual Christmas card design competition has been taking place at Loreto College Coleraine.

Students from Years 8-10 were asked to design a simple black and white card, using silhouettes, representing images of Christmas in quite a minimalist manner.  The winning designs were, as in previous years, to be sold in to the staff and students of the College to raise funds for the Society of St Vincent de Paul.

With a substantial entry from students from throughout the Junior school, students and staff had the opportunity to vote for their favourites from a shortlist selected by Art & Design teachers Mr Paul Cunning and Miss Michelle McGarvey.  Six students had their designs selected: Chloe Moore, Aisling O’Kane and Eve O’Loan (all Year 8), Megan O’Kane (Year 9) and Claire Hill and Casey Moore (Year 10)  produced outstanding designs which have now been reproduced on stylish monochrome Christmas cards.

The successful students were congratulated by Head of Art & Design Mr Paul Cunning and College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan, on behalf of all the staff and students of Loreto.  Sr Rosemary Gallagher, St Vincent de Paul Co-ordinator at Loreto, thanked the students for their work in raising valuable funds for this excellent cause.
