In Pictures: Laois secondary school host annual Halloween fancy dress party


The first term at Portlaoise College came to a Spooktacular end with their annual Halloween Fancy dress.

The Prefects were on hand to deliver prizes for best dressed in each year group

Zombies, scary clowns, vampires and witches roamed the corridors and classrooms, led by principal Mr Daly who donned his inner secret agent and dressed up as James Bond, 007.

Some spectacular costumes and gruesome make-up led to a great atmosphere in class, providing a great lift at the end of a long term.

Principal Noel Daly said: “The students and staff of Portlaoise College showed great spirit and enthusiasm on the day, and over the whole term.

“Since the start of September our students have put in a great effort with classwork, homework projects and activities.

“We would like to wish all our students, staff and families a very enjoyable & safe break – you all deserve it.”
