Spooky Fun at Halloween Movie Night

Burrow School was turned into the most haunted school in Dublin on Friday 19th October when the PA hosted its first spooky Movie Night. Kids enjoyed popcorn, sweets, drinks and other goodies while watching scary films – Scared Shrekless for the little ones and The Corpse Bride for the older classes. Homemade cakes, hotdogs and tea and coffee were also on sale, while a prize was given for the best carved pumpkin.

Thanks to everyone who baked, helped out, supported the night and dressed up – the night raised a whopping €759 for the school, an absolutely fabulous result!

Bumper Clothes Collection for Lenrec!

Thank you to everyone who donated sacks of used clothes, shoes and textiles to our autumn clothing collection for Lenrec. We collected a whopping 1.4 tonnes, which will net the school almost €800! A phenomenal start to our fundraising year – thank you! We will be holding another collection in early spring, so put aside those used clothes until then.



Halloween Scary Movie Night

Our spooky Halloween movie night takes place in the school hall on Freaky Friday 19th October. Don’t forget to dress up and bring along your carved pumpkin – a special prize will be on offer for the best pumpkin (make sure you label your pumpkin so we know who has won)! Entrance is €5 for kids, or €10 per family, which includes popcorn and other goodies. We will also be selling hotdogs at €1 and cakes for 50c each. Parents are more than welcome to stay for the movie and can enjoy tea/coffee with cake for just €1. The kids’ Halloween art will be on display and can be taken home that evening too.

The times are as follows:

6pm-7pm: Junior Infants – 2nd Class – Scared Shrekless

7pm-8.30pm: 3rd Class – 6th Class – The Corpse Bride

As usual we need some lovely helpers! Firstly, to bake some cakes – please let Cliodhna know on 0868512991 if you can bake (cakes can be left in the kitchen that morning). And secondly to help with supervision – we need at least three parents from 4th, 5th & 6th class to help supervise the second film; classes that don’t have adequate supervision won’t be able to attend. If you’re in a position to supervise, please text Adrienne on 0872029102 by Tuesday 16th October. See you all there for some scary fun!
