The 2019 Someone Like Me Exhibition and Awards Ceremony took place in Dublin City Hall, on December 3rd, International Day of Persons with Disabilities. It was a great day which celebrated the hard work of the 49 winning pupils and their teachers. Thank you to all of the schools who attended the event and we hope to see you again next year!
The Overall Winner 2018 was announced on the day, with 5th and 6th Class of The Down’s National School, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, claiming the title. The pupils, together with their teacher Catherine Staunton, created a beautiful and intricate superhero pop-up book which tells the story of their superhero school-mate Fionn and his journey to America for a life changing operation.
This year, the judges also selected a Highly Commended Award winner. Aine O’Brien from Ballybrown N.S., Co. Limerick was awarded for her entry, a noticeboard of a girl with a disability which documents her everyday sporty lifestyle.
Congratulations to all on your awards!
