Winners were selected from the Junior and Senior categories and congratulations go to Alice O’Hagan in 6th Year whose photo was captioned ‘Beauty on our Doorstep’ and to Virginia Tozer in 1st Year whose photo was entitled ‘Fishing and Flushing’.  A ‘Mega-Map’ was displayed on the corridor to create awareness and thanks go to all the girls who helped in the decoration and display of the map.
