As the spooky season has come to an end, St. Mary's is buzzing with excitement about the fantastic Halloween-themed activities that the boys in 5th class enjoyed. The classroom was transformed into a spooky haven, thanks to the creative efforts of Anne, Tom O'Connor, and several other boys.
The boys had a blast during two engaging art-themed lessons. In one session, they created eerie haunted mansions set against a spooky night sky. Using oil and chalk pastels, they skillfully blended vibrant colors to form a captivating night sky backdrop. Over this mysterious canvas, they added a silhouette of a spooky scene that was nothing short of impressive.
In another artistic endeavor, the students unleashed their creativity by painting their very own pumpkins, designing them in unique and imaginative ways. The results were nothing short of fantastic, showcasing the students' artistic talents and Halloween spirit.
As a grand finale before the break, the boys embarked on a thrilling adventure by participating in a spooky walk through Booterstown and Blackrock Park, all while donning their spooktacular Halloween costumes. It was conducted to raise funds for Temple Street Hospital. The initiative was a resounding success, as it raised over 300 euros for temple street hospital.
