Halloween Quiz 2016October 28th, 2016
We had a hugely successful Halloween Quiz last night, Thursday October 27th. We were visited by all kinds of scary ghosts, witches, goblins, scary movie characters, pirates, superheroes, rubberbandits, monkeys, clowns, zombies, dead soldiers, bikers, royalty, minions, dead patients and many many more who stopped the teachers from getting a winks sleep last night from the horrors!! The hall was beautifully decorated by children throughout the school…they really are a talented bunch. Many thanks to all our sponsors and parents who donated spot prizes on the night and to all the teams who participated and those who bought raffle tickets. Congratulations to Sean Guilfoyle and his team who were the overall winners of a highly enjoyable quiz! Check out our photo gallery for pictures of all our visitors and some more scary characters who turned up in school this morning!! Happy Halloween everyone!!
Halloween in 5th ClassOctober 28th, 2016
We’ve celebrated Halloween old style in 5th class this year. Mr Quinn showed us a game that he played at home in his childhood…many full moons ago!! We had to make a mound of flour on a plate and put a cherry on top. We then took turns cutting away slices of flour. If the cherry fell down while the knife was in your hand, you had to eat the cherry and dunk your head in the flour!! We had great fun playing that and created an awful mess!! We also did some Halloween art which gave us a chance to mix many colours to make eyecatching backgrounds and to work with silhouettes also. We’re all looking forward to our week off from school and hope you all have a SPOOKtacular Halloween break.
