March 16th / Year 8 have, in their own words, “been putting the Trash In Fashion”.  At lunchtime today we were treated to a display of costumes all made from recycled materials.

Many pupils paid to come and watch the show, with all proceeds going to the Year 8 Lenten Fundraising drive.  For more details of this, please click here.

All five Year 8 forms were involved, with 27 different teams competing for the prize of “best outfit in show”.

As you will see from the photos below, the pupils had come up with some fantastic creations.  After much deliberation, the judges awarded the prizes as follows:

1 – Lara, Aine & Florence, 8Y

2 – Abbey, Kayla, Leah, Francesca & Ellie, 8Y

3 – Lauren, Maja, Jenny, Niamh & Ella, 8J

Here are the three winning designs:

Thank you to Mrs Caulfield and the Year 8 tutor team for helping to make this all happen, to Mrs Sheehan, Mrs Parkin & Miss Maruthamuthu for acting as judges, and to all the Year 8 pupils who put so much thought and energy into creating these wonderful costumes.
