St. Louis student qualifies for National Art Final
Massive congratulations to St. Louis Transition Year student Gertruda Kalvynaite who is the Ulster winner of the Mental Health Ireland’s Art and Photography Competition. Gertruda now qualifies for the National Final of this prestigious competition. The St. Louis school community is exceptionally proud of Gertruda’s phenomenal achievement.
The theme for Mental Health Ireland’s Art and Photography competition for secondary school students was ‘Mind Your Mental Health’. The central message of Gertruda’s masterpiece is the importance of nature, creativity, love and genuine friendships in ensuring a person's mental well-being. Issues including anxiety, stress, self-harm and depression can be difficult for teenagers to talk about and in St. Louis students are encouraged to talk to someone on the Care Team. A problem shared is a problem halved.
