Credit Union Primary Schools Art Competition
Ballinasloe has entered the race to compete for the title of Galways Fittest Town in 2016. The competition which takes place from 1st February – 13th March is an initiative of Galway Sports Partnership with the objective of encouraging and supporting people from all aspects of our community to get out and get active! The Fit Town Team have worked in partnership with a number of groups, clubs, organisations and schools throughout the community to schedule a variety of programmes and events over the 6 week period – details are available online @ www.ballinasloe.ie and also in the current edition of Ballinasloe Life. To complement this project Ballinasloe Credit Union are collaborating with the Fit Town Team and Primary Schools in the area to launch a ‘Healthy Little Me’ Art Competition. The challenge is for each child to depict through their creative mind what it means to be healthy and how they think they might influence their own wellbeing – taking into consideration diet, nutrition, exercise, lifestyle and other influences such as family, friends schools, clubs, environment.

With the same theme are also partnering with the new Ballinasloe Library and the two Post Primary Schools; Garbally and Ardscoil Mhuire 6 Word Story Competition.
