The creativity of the pupils in Kilrane NS, Tagoat NS and Scoil Mhuire, Rosslare Strand was applauded at the awards ceremony for this year's Rochefreight Christmas Card competition.

This is the third year of the competition which asks the three local schools to design Christmas cards, with the entry reproduced and used by Rochefreight as their company season's greeting for their customers.

The winning design also wins €1,500 worth of Prim-Ed products for their school, jointly sponsored by Rochefreight and the New Ross based publisher.

This year, Chloe Cooper from Kilrane NS was the winning artist with Keon O'Reilly from Tagoat NS and Órlaith Rose O'Gorman the deserving runners-up.

Chloe also received €100 while Keon and Órlaith received €50 each.

In addition to that, Rochefreight makes two further presentations to St Mary's Daycare Centre in Tagoat, who the company always supports, and a second charity that changes each year.

Damien Roche, managing director of Rochefreight, said they were very mindful of the homeless crisis this year and chose Wexford Women's Refuge as a local charity that was helping to combat certain instances of that issue.

Each group received a cheque for €1,000.

'We were delighted to help out two very deserving charities. The competition has been a big hit with our local schools and it's good to give back to the local area through educational assets. The Prim-Ed products are a great tool for any school and we're pleased to be able to provide them to schools through the competition.'
