With the February 1st CAO deadline approaching, we have launched an innovative social media campaign encouraging prospective students to get more familiar with the courses on offer at IT Sligo.
People who are considering their college options are being asked to submit photographs of themselves with the IT Sligo Prospectus, in the Imagine IT Sligo Photo Competition. The more wonderful or weird the location, the better!
The competition is an interactive approach to encourage prospective students to get more familiar with the 50-odd CAO options we offer.
All the details for this great prize are on here. Good luck
I entered a photo competition on Look West’s facebook page. I’m delighted that two of my photos got shortlisted from 750 to the final 50. The only trouble is now that it’s a voting competition which is great if you have loads of friends but I don’t I would love to win a hamper
This weekend was the annual Feile na Tuaithe at the museum of country life in Castlebar. It’s a great family event and it’s free. There were all kinds of events taking place.
During the weeks leading up to the festival there was a photo competition running. The kids and I entered photo’s. If you read one of my earlier blogs you’ll have seen some of the photo’s in the national papers. We got a call on Friday to say that one of the photo’s Lucy entered had won the under 18′s prize.
Well it’s been a mixed bag of a week. A few annoying things happened including Jono finishing his course He was doing a trial and we were hoping he would go straight onto the course, but of course this is Ireland and things don’t go to plan. So now we have to go to a meeting on Monday and find out if and when he can start properly.
What these people don’t realise is that it’s another change of routine and Jono has asperger’s syndrome so routine is very important to him. Also he really loves the course and is disappointed he has to finish.
On a positive note I entered a photo competition run by Feile na Tuaithe which is a free family festival run this weekend at the Museum of Country Life in Castlebar. Although my photo’s didn’t get anywhere, my dandelion photo was printed in three national papers yesterday. The Mirror, the Sun and the Examiner. I was so pleased
One of my photo’s was a runner up in the Spring quarter of the RTE weather photo competition. It was shown on tv a few times behind the weather forecast.
The calendar was enclosed in this weeks RTE guide. My photo didn’t get into the main part of the calendar but it is on the front page along with others:
Here’s my photo:
Jono and I went to Féile Na Tuaithe at the Museum of Country Life, Castlebar in May. There was a photo competition running to capture the spirit of the festival.
Jono came second in the teenage section, today there was a presentation and exhibtion of the winning photo’s. Jono won an ‘Outdoor set’ which comprised of binocular’s, swiss army knife, torch and compass. He was really pleased.
Talking of Jono he has his own Pokemon blog. So if anyone reading this blog is interested in Pokemon here is the site. He recently got the Japanese version of Pokemon Black which isn’t released here until next year. I don’t know how he fathoms it out as none of it is in English.
I spotted this in Rosses Point this week. I wonder if they are early or late
Not too much has been happening this week. Jono went to his second computer class and is really enjoying it.
I’ve been busy walking the dog. It’s amazing that he’s only been here for two weeks. He’s settled in so well.
The weather has been lousy. Today was lashing rain. I hope we haven’t lost our Summer
By the way I’m still hoping to get votes on facebook. If you search shopireland you’ll find the competition.
It’s always a bad hair day for me, because my hair does whatever it wants to do…..or should that be I can’t be bothered to spend the time and effort to sort it out.
Anyway my photo got on the RTE weather today. Talk about blink and you’ll miss it. It was on for about a second and there was no mention of my name or where the photo was taken. A bit of a fail really. Oh well I don’t think I’ll enter the competition again.
