This is an initiative under Creative Youth – A Plan to Enable the Creative Potential of Every Child and Young Person, which was published in December 2017 as part of the Creative Ireland Programme.The Schools Excellence Fund is an initiative in the Action Plan for Education. It sets out to encourage and recognize excellence and innovation in our schools.This initiative will help deliver on the Creative Youth pillar of Creative Ireland, which sets out a commitment that every child in Ireland has practical access to tuition, experience and participation in music, drama, arts and coding by 2022.All five schools: S.N.

The local schools have worked together to develop a creative project and have had an opportunity since October to collaborate on a new idea based on their local experience and unique perspectives.Oliver McGinley, Principal of S.N. Éadan Fhionnfhraoich said their school community has emphasized over the last number of years the need for taking responsibility for improving the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils. He said “We have, as a school identified the use of creativity (Drama in particular) as a significant tool in our strategy. It has always been our aspiration that all our pupils are afforded the opportunity to learn and develop, to feel confident and good about themselves. Being creative gives our pupils curiosity and confidence. It raises self-esteem and helps them to develop new tools of communication.”
Brentford travel to Aston Villa on Wednesday for the first time in more than 63 years. Very few fans will remember the Bees’ 0-0 FA Cup draw in January 1953 – here’s the five match-ups that could swing the latest contest.Scott Hogan v Tommy ElphickHogan’s double at Brighton not only earned the Bees three valuable points on the road, but it took the striker’s personal goal tally to 10 in 13 league games since his return from injury. On Wednesday, he comes up against Wales international James Chester and Villa skipper Elphick, who has settled in well since his move from Bournemouth.Andreas Bjelland v Jordan AyewIf Leicester loanee Callum Elder succumbs to a knee injury suffered on Saturday, Bjelland will again step in after an impressive second half up against Anthony Knockaert. He’ll face another of the division’s top players in Ghana international Ayew, a former Champions League player with Marseille.Maxime Colin v Jack GrealishOn the other flank, Colin will also have a challenge up against the unpredictable Grealish, who can dazzle one minute and flatter to deceive the next. If he can keep his man quiet, Brentford could do well – if he can’t, they might be in for a long night.Ryan Woods v Mile JedinakWoods continues to look comfortable at this level, a little over a year after stepping up from Shrewsbury. His range of passing will be crucial to setting off the Bees’ counter-attacks – former Crystal Palace skipper Jedinak will be keen to win their personal duel.Dean Smith v Roberto Di MatteoBees boss Smith talked of his Villa connections in the build up – he and his brother watched them as children, and his father was a Villa Park steward for 30 years. But once the whistle goes, focus will switch to his tactical battle with a Champions League-winning Chelsea hero occupying the opposite dugout.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
