Winning Student

Posted on : June 1, 2021

Congratulations to first year Eabha Daffy who has won the prestigious Athena Award. The Classical Association of Ireland aims to increase the appreciation of the culture and achievements of ancient Greece and Rome. Studying the Classical world, its successes and failures, has always been an inspiration for revolution and change throughout the ages. The  Athena Award encourages students to take on a project that draws inspiration from the Classical World but targets issues in today’s world. This year the students were asked to consider the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals and find ways of connecting the lessons learned from the Ancient World to the achievement of one of those goals.  Eabha used Lockdown to combine her love of Art and Mythology to design and make a Recycling Box. It was aimed towards Sustainable goal 14 “to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.” The Recycling box depicts Neptune Protecting the life of the Sea, reminding us to recycle and keep our seaside community clean. She also did some clean-ups along the coastline in Strandhill. In the project Eabha showed creativity, inspiration from the lessons of the Ancient World, and that she is an active citizen keen to improve her community. Well done Eabha!
