Magical Train Journeys

An excited gathering came together in the Hall last Friday. They were anxiously awaiting news of the winner of our annual art competition in memory of James Sheridan, a very special first class pupil who passed away in June 2009. James loved trains, especially Thomas the Tank Engine.  We like to remember James by asking our First Classes to take part in this competition every year, James’ classmates, now in Fifth Class, organised a very special assembly, with songs, stories and lots of fond memories. The winning entry was by Ailish Debish, in Ms. Holland’s class. She is pictured here with her winning entry. Also pictured is Isabelle O’ Leary presenting the trophy to Ailish.  Isabelle was the winner of last year’s competition.

The trophy is an original drawing by James, which has been framed in glass.

The judges had a very difficult job as all of the entries were of a very high standard, but everyone agreed that James would have loved Ailish’s picture.
