Parish school receives grant

St. Anthony Parish School has received a $10,000 grant from the Pali Lions Club that will pay for a multimedia projector and other computer lab equipment.

The Pali Lions made the donation through a grant from the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation's Weinberg Friends Program. The foundation requires the club to sponsor a service project to benefit a nonprofit organization.

The Pali Lions poured concrete for an outdoor patio, repaired the sprinkler system and did yard maintenance at the Windward Seniors Day Care Center. In return, the foundation allowed the Lions to distribute the grant to a group of its choice — St. Anthony Parish School.

Youths get chance to display artwork

A student art show called "Salon des Refuses" will be on display at Honolulu Hale through Feb. 16.

The creative works of students in Grades 7-12 include drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, computer graphics and fiber art.

Public and private schools from throughout O'ahu are participating in the show.

The student art includes works not able to be shown in the prestigious Scholastic Art competition because of national quotas and space restrictions, said organizers John Nippolt and Christine Ho, art teachers from Kaimuki Middle School and Wai'anae High School.
