This year our 3rd and 4th class pupils had the opportunity to make Halloween art using different artistic media. Sinéad Spring gave her time to the school to do Halloween Art using glitter glue, glow in the dark paint and paint pens on canvas backgrounds. The children enjoyed the experience and created many scary pumpkins, skeletons and witches.
The local Ladies GAA club ran their annual Halloween Art competition at the end of October. Congratulations to Ruben Fallon, Seán Downes and Nicola Sexton who took the prizes from 3rd and 4th class. Prizes were presented by chairperson Loretta Hanrahan.
