Someone Like Me Award Ceremony

Knockainey National School

Congratulations to Evan Kirby in 2nd Class who has been selected as the Someone Like Me Art Competition 2023 Limerick Junior Winner!

Someone Like Me is an Art Competition which promotes disability awareness among primary school pupils. Through a range of resources and activities, this competition enables pupils to understand that even though we might have different abilities, we’re all pretty similar. 

On Wednesday 17th January, Evan travelled by train to Dublin City Hall for the National Awards Ceremony. Guest speakers spoke about the importance of the competition for raising awareness about disabilities and inclusion. One of these guest speakers was Rory O’Connor from ‘Rory’s Stories’ who got his picture taken with Evan! The winning entries from other counties were on display and we were amazed by the creativity of each entry. Evan was delighted to receive a framed certificate as well as a €50 voucher. He also won a €100 voucher for his school! We all had a brilliant day celebrating Evan’s achievement. Maith thú arís! Evans teacher Ms. Morris was also very lucky on the day and won a teacher award! Well done to Ms. Morris also.
