The INSPA uses photography to introduce “creative well-being into the lives of primary school students while building a future generation of people who are confident, resilient, connected, kind and ready.”

The awards are free and prizes include trips and stays at the Amber Springs Resort for principals, teachers, pupils and families and cameras for winners and schools.

The INSPA said in a statement: “We would like to take this opportunity, once again, to congratulate Dominika from Stepaside ETNS and Jack from Courtnacuddy NS on their recent successes and we look forward to working with all finalist schools when they re-open in September.

“If your school would like to begin its Positive Primary Journey and participate in the 2020/21 awards, you can register your school at the INSPA website.”
