It started out as a little bit of Friday silly, but today’s Halloween fancy dress competition up at Temple Carrig got way out of hand.
Firstly, it was just going to be the teachers, proving themselves to be good sports by looking somewhat ridiculous.
But then a few students signed up too. And then some more. And then, a whole feckin’ gansey load more.
“We just wanted to give the students a sense of fun and normality,” says the school’s philosophy teacher, Susan Kyne, “especially since we’ve had to restrict so many of our usual activities. You really have to commend the students for the resilience they have shown during this difficult term…”
It was another teacher, Caroline Hickey, who put the siren call out for today’s fancy dress afternoon, and like all the other teachers at Temple Carrig, she was bowled over by the response.
“Particularly the 6th years,” says Kyne. “They really embraced the frivolity!”
Nicely done to everyone who took part. In the end, the winners were…
1st Year Category: Scott Brady, Andrew Wray, Tyra Keenan. Junior Category: Tasiana Griffin English, Louisa Tyrrell, Issam Hussain. Senior Category: Orlando Young & James Connolly Dimitriv, Matthew Wray, Julianne Mulcahy. Group Prize: 3 Little Pigs, The Breakfast Club. Some Honorable Mentions: Borat, Peaky Blinders, Breaking Bad, Stevie Nicks, The Rock, Eminem and the many ghosts.
Kudos to Principal Alan Cox who dressed up as a student and then proceeded to give out to himself for the entire afternoon. Boom!
