Children paint a bright future with Dublin Bus

Published on Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Over 100 primary school students from the Mid West of Dublin attended the 2018 Dublin Bus Children’s Art Competition Awards at City Services Social Club, Clondalkin. 

The art competition is part of an overall campaign by Dublin Bus to promote the concept of respecting public transport amongst school children. A total of four regional ceremonies will take place throughout the week to celebrate the efforts of the children who took part in the competition which ran throughout the month of April.

Each year Dublin Bus School and Community Co-ordinators visit schools, based within the individual catchment areas, relaying the message to young people how to use and respect public transport in their respective areas. The theme for this year’s competition was “What I like about my local bus driver”. Since its inception, the annual Children’s Art Competition has gone from strength to strength and this year saw 26 primary schools across the Greater Dublin Area entering the competition.

Commenting on today’s awards ceremony, Clíodhna Ní Fhátharta, Media and Communications Manager, Dublin Bus, said, “Dublin Bus serves the local community and we are fully committed to engaging with all our customers including the customers of tomorrow. The annual art competition helps these children to learn the benefits of public transport in their area while developing their artistic skills and most of all having fun.”

The winning students from each participating school receive prizes at each ceremony and a selection of the winning entries will be published in a 2019 Dublin Bus calendar, at the end of the year, which is distributed amongst the participating schools, Dublin Bus employees and elected representatives in the Greater Dublin Area. Copies will also be available to the public from Dublin Bus Headquarters in O’Connell Street.
