Have a read - time is short- see if you are interested!!

Dear Ms O’Connor,
I am writing to ask you to inform your students and teachers, specifically those involved in English, Media Studies, RE and CSPE, about an exciting new journalism venture which the Far East magazine and Columbans in Ireland are hosting as part of their centenary (1918-2018) celebrations.
I attach an ad for the competition.
We are looking for students (aged 15-18 inclusive) to write an article or make a video report that informs, challenges and raises important issues on the topic: ‘Migrants Are Our Neighbours’.
The objective of the competition is to encourage students to use their journalistic writing and mobile skills to look at a topical issue which is relevant to Irish society today and resonates with Catholic Social Teaching.
We have secured some high-profile judges from the world of journalism for the competition. They are:
- Fionnán Sheahan - Editor of the Irish Independent.
- Patsy McGarry - Religious Affairs correspondent with The Irish Times.
- Michael Kelly - Editor of the Irish Catholic.
- Bobby Gilmore SSC - writes and campaigns on migrant issues.
The closing date for entries is 8 February 2018.
The winning articles and videos will be announced in Columban media on 15 March 2018.
Prizes will be presented by the former president of Ireland, Dr Mary McAleese, on 29 June 2018.
More information: www.columbancompetition.com
I do hope to see some entries from Loreto Community School, Milford!
Best wishes,
Sarah Mac Donald
Editor – The Far East Magazine
