For the last 30 years Lions clubs around the world have proudly sponsored the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art competition for children encourages young people worldwide to express their visions of peace.
J Dunne, 6th class at Pope John Pauls National School Malahide has taken the first steps to becoming an internationally recognised artist by winning a local competition sponsored by Malahide Lions Club. She is a pupil in Ms Millar’s class.
Her poster was selected from a group of 81 peers in other national schools in Malahide. It was selected for its originality, artistic merit and portrayal of the contest theme “Lead with Compassion”.
Her poster has gone on to advance through district and international levels of the competition. Malahide Lions wish her the best of luck in the competition, results of competition by February 2023.
Pope John Paul School was also presented with a certificate of participation by Club President Ms Ger Foran which was accepted by the vice principal Ms Byrne. J Dunne was presented with a certificate as contest club winner and a book token.
