Congratulation to our team of budding recycling designers who qualified for the regional finals of Junk Kouture. The three girls all in Leaving Cert Applied, Alice Dimes, WIllow Howe and Marta Markowska produced a magnificent piece entitled "Amphitrite" which was inspired form the local environment of the sea. The outfit was made using seashells and carrigeen for the bodice and melted painted plastic cups for the scale like effect on the tail. Over 2000 entries were received nationwide with 80 qualifying for each region. A group of teachers and students travelled to Castlebar on 20th March to support the team where the standard of entries was exceptional. On this occasion we did not qualify to proceed to the national final but already plans are under way for next years entry.
Thank you to all the people who took the time to vote online for our entry.
