Goliath Trust 2021 Happy Art Competition
‘Happiness is…’ was the theme for the Goliath Trust 2021 Happy Art Competition supported by the Summerhill Foundation.
Over 6,600 children were delighted to receive new colouring pencil sets so they could design their fabulous posters and show us what truly makes them happy!
No child was left out with all 6,600 children across the 23 Goliath schools awarded prizes just for taking part in the competition. Overall there were 13,730 prizes awarded throughout the schools with competition winners from each year group getting to enjoy trips to local trampoline and water parks. Teachers and teaching assistants were also rewarded for their dedication and motivation within the classrooms.
The Happy Art competition was a huge success and the feedback from the schools has been wonderful as you will hear from the videos below.
‘It helped children see beyond the pandemic.’ That’s the view of Eleanor Lees, St Claire’s PS, west Belfast, on the #Goliath-Summerhill Foundation Happy Art Competition which reached 6,600 children in our 23 schools. @joannmyles @PEC62 @AlMcDonnellSB @dunlop_ni @RayHaydenAW pic.twitter.com/Jrwvy4pWuu
