Christmas is HOPE...

Children's art to give the gift of hope

"Huge congratulations and many thanks to the 190 super-talented children from St Thomas's and St Philip Neri Catholic Schools in Sydney's Lower North Shore who entered our LETS Christmas Card Competition 2015," reports LETS Chairperson, Georgina Loughnan. "You are really living the true spirit of Christmas by using your creative talents to help give the gift of hope to our friends in Letefoho."

"You also gave our judging panel the toughest job ever trying to decide who the winners should be! So whose beautiful illustrations were chosen to be printed on our LETS Christmas cards 2015?"

"Congratulations to Lara E from St Philip Neri for her beautiful nativity scene with a dove of HOPE - Lara took First Place in this year's competition. Well done also to Anton L from St Thomas's School whose many colours of HOPE design took Second Place. Both Lara's and Anton's stunning illustrations have been printed on our 2015 Christmas cards which will be sold to raise vital funds to support the developing community of Letefoho in Timor Leste," Georgina added.

Hear-hear also to our Highly Commended award winners - Giacomo B and Phoebe C from St Thomas's School, and Sophia G and Ellena L from St Philip Neri School.

Card sales run from 28 November to 20 December at all weekend masses across the Catholic Parish of the Lower North Shore in Sydney.
