Junk Kouture: 6 teams travelled to Castlebar, Co. Mayo for the regional finals of the Junk Kouture competition. We are very proud of the efforts of all students but unfortunately none of the teams made it through. The teams were commended for their creativity and total embracement of the brief which was to utilise recycled materials for the purpose of costume design. Many thanks to Ms Hetherton for all her help in preparing the costumes and for accompanying the teams to the final.
