Spooky spiders and plump pumpkins sparked Halloween fun at St Michael’s this week.
Supported by the school’s Parents and Friends association, pupils enjoyed two games which offered great prizes to winners.
Coordinator of the Halloween competitions and P & F committee member, Kelly Downey said: “Given the restrictions currently in place, the P&F are focusing on strengthening the school community for parents and children this year.
“The competitions are a simple way for the children to have some fun in the week before half term, while raising some funds for the P&F.”
Children in Pre-Prep were tasked with guessing the number of spooky spiders in the jar, while Prep children were asked to guess the weight of a pumpkin. Pupils made a donations to the P & F in exchange for each guess they made.
And the winners of the games, Herbie W (Pre-Prep) A Ward, M Little, L Lutzow and H Owen (Prep), were awarded Halloween hampers which will help them celebrate this year’s festival in spooktacular style.
Kelly added: “The funds raised for the P&F will go towards funding activities and facilities for the children to enrich their time at the school.”
