What teachers say
'I think Sightsavers is such a worthy charity and the competition themes are always fantastic! They are so rich & inspire the kids immensely which not only feeds into art but English, drama etc.'
Sharon Murphy, Gleneely National School, Donegal
'I love the themes generally eg something I would love to see -+ valuing the gift of sight + the gift of being artistic and I feel that the pupils. It's great that each entrant gets a certificate in acknowledgement of the effort put in.'
Linda Farrell, St. Cronins Boys School, Wicklow
'The children love expressing themselves through art. They also enjoyed hearing about the charity and loved the sample of braille card.'
Avril Kelly, Scoil Aiséirí Chríost, Cork
