Primary School Art Competition Now Open

Primary School Art Competition

Education Solutions, a Business Print company are calling Primary schools to enter their art competition. From COVID testing to close contact rules, you would be forgiven for thinking that a lot of what makes school fun for children has been removed for primary school children. A new art competition aimed at allowing children to free their creativity aims to change that with primary school teachers across Dublin encouraged to get their students to get creative and build resilience in them from childhood. Business Print has teamed up with the Jack and Jill Foundation and The Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin and Britvic to stage a free art competition for primary schools aimed at encouraging children through this challenging time. 

Ivor of Business Print said: “All children are capable of working through challenges and coping with stress. Resilience is the ability to bounce back from stress, adversity, failure, challenges, or even trauma. It’s not something that kids either have or don’t have; it’s a skill that kids develop as they grow. “Resilient kids are more likely to take healthy risks because they don’t fear falling short of expectations. They are curious, brave, and trusting of their instincts. They know their limits and they push themselves to step outside of their comfort zones. This helps them reach their long- term goals and it helps them solve problems independently. Besides, having your artwork made into your School Diary cover is just cool!”
