Nine Cavan schools to benefit from arts and creativity initiative

Pupils at nine Cavan schools are set to benefit from the ‘Creative Schools’ initiative.

The Arts Council led scheme provides young people with more opportunities to participate in, and enjoy, the arts.

As part of the scheme, schools are given a grant of €2,000 to implement art projects.

Selected schools are also allocated a Creative Associate who works directly with the school to enable them to explore the potential impact of the arts and creativity on school life.

The nine Cavan schools were chosen from over 300 applicants nationwide.

Orlaith McBride, Director of the Arts Council, said the scheme helps young people to “explore their creativity, guided by the expertise of artists and other creatives in their own communities”.

The Cavan schools chosen to participate in this initiative are –

Gaelscoil Bhreifne,

Crosserlough National School,

Farnham National School,

Killygarry National School,

St Aidan’s Comprehensive,

St Clare’s College,

St Patrick’s National School,

St Clare’s National School, and

Virginia College.
