Highest Achiever Awards 2016

We were delighted to host the leaving Cert Art Highest Achiever Awards in IMMA this October. The awards went to some fantastic students from around the country and were presented by Senior Curator Helen O'Donogue. This is an amazing achievement for all the students, given the difficulty of getting an A in Art.
