THE pupils in Marshalstown National School are a very talented bunch and that fact was underlined recently by the photographic skills of three students in particular.
Maskims, Robyn and Harry are three children whose eye for a good photograph has seen them qualify for the final stages of a major national photography competition.
They entered the INSPA photography awards competition in May and submitted photos based around a theme of ‘Me, Myself and I’.
Over 500 primary schools around the country entered the competition and thousands of pupils submitted photos so even reaching the final is an achievement to be proud of.
However, everyone in Marshalstown is hoping the three pupils will now go on to win prizes in the final.
Maskims entry, ‘Me and My Cat’, was a brilliant photo of him beside his cat while ‘Harry’s Meteor’ was a photo of Harry pursuing one of his other great interests kicking a soccer ball.
Robyn’s passionate interest in animals was reflected in her entry, ‘I Love Animals’, which was a close up of a small lizard on her face.
The photos captivated the attention of the competition organisers and served to highlight the inherent talent of the three pupils.
All of the competition finalists, including the three entries from Marshalstown, are available to view at www.inspa.ie/inspa-enter-exhibition
