Halloween Expo – Great Night – Thank-you!

What a lovely night was had at the Halloween Expo, organised by Yvette Blake, before midterm. We raised €340 towards funding the activities of the PA which is a great result, for what is first and foremost a social event for families. The children’s art was fantastic and decorated the hall beautifully. Thanks to the teachers for working with the children to come up with so many creative ideas. Thanks also to our sponsors – The Winehouse, Supervalu and Opening Minds.
