Halloween Fun in Carrickleck NS

On Friday October 23rd, Carrickleck NS transformed into a school full of witches, zombies, werewolves, skeletons and other gruesome characters! Pupils, teachers and parents all got into the Halloween spirit and looked great in their costumes. Everyone really enjoyed the treats and goodies…even if some items contained eyeballs and other gruesome bits!

As well as dressing up and eating all the tasty treats, we enjoyed playing various games. We even tried our luck at some traditional Halloween games! The children in the older classes were great at helping the younger pupils. Snap Apple was a particular favourite with everyone! To top it all off, there was even some Irish dancing!

Everyone had a great time and I think you’ll agree that the smiles really do speak for themselves…

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make this a very happy and fun-filled day in Carrickleck NS!
