Hallowe'en 2015

Our annual Hallowe’en fancy dress and art competition was held on Friday the 23rd of October. Children and indeed families went to great lengths creating amazing costumes – fridges, hot air balloons, barbie dolls and barbie teachers, washing machines and minions were in plentiful supply. This ‘Dress Up’ day raised over €430 for Jonathan Kiernan and his class mates in St. John of Gods school.

The children also decorated the foyer with amazing art pieces to create a Hallowe’en atmosphere..

Thanks to Ms. Dunning and her class who organised the ‘In Memory of Christine Day’. Well done to all the boys and girls who participated in the fun day!!!!

Have a look at our photos.

Halloween Fun

On the 24th October we had our annual Halloween Fancy Dress and Art competition. We encourage families to get together and make their own costumes and Halloween art. This year we had lots of really original and creative ideas. The school entrance was decorated with fabulous art from all classes. The Fancy Dress competition was one of the best yet with vampires, ghouls, clowns, minions and Minecraft characters and so many other original ideas. Even Bernard and other staff members joined in the fun. We raised money in memory of Christine Kiernan, our school secretary who passed away this time last year. Thanks to all those who supported the cause, the money will go towards St John of God’s Centre and Christine’s son who has special needs.

Here below you can see some photos of the Halloween art competition and the Fancy dress winners. Well done to everyone who took part.
