We Would like to remind all taking part in this years School Art Competition that the closing date (26/02/16) is fast approaching. Should you or your Students need any help regarding this years Theme – The Olympic spirit and sport. Please don’t hesitate in contacting myself, by any of the following methods: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Facebook Page: Facebook.com/Sport4DevelopmentIE/ or use the Contact us Page of this website.
I would like to take this opportunity in wishing you all the very best of luck, but above all else, make sure to enjoy yourselves and have fun, its not all about the winning, but the taking part that counts the most.
We would like to invite all primary schools in Ireland to participate in our 2nd annual Primary School Poster Competition which is being run in advance of and to help celebrate the 3rd International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) on the 6th of April, 2016. Our purpose is to help promote awareness and understanding of the positive impact sport can have of itself but also when used appropriately as a tool to achieve other goals and objectives.
As 2016 is an Olympic year and the world’s attention again focuses on Brazil following last year’s World Cup our theme is – the Olympic spirit and sport.
The Olympic Spirit can mean different things to us all, images of athletes striving to achieve victory in different competitions loom before our minds’ eyes. All these images also evoke strong feelings in us. We watch the carrying of the torch with awe. We watch the competition of our nation’s athletes with excitement. And we fill with pride whenever one of our own athletes achieves a great victory.
This year we would again invite schools to submit 3 entries per participating class (whether selected by competition or randomly, that is up to you!) and submitted for inclusion in an exhibition to mark the day and the opportunity to win a prize for themselves and their class. We will categorise the classes into 3 for judging:
Category 1 will be entries from 1st & 2nd Class,
Category 2 will be entries from 3rd & 4th Class,
Category 3 will be entries from 5th and 6th Class.
For the full details of the rules, terms and conditions see below. Please read these carefully and ensure they are followed for the purposes of the competition. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to receiving confirmation of your entry and the posters your school submits.
