WHILE the Friday before mid-term is traditionally a day for a Halloween fancy dress party in primary schools around town, Tralee Educate Together decided to add an extra ingredient to the fun…pumpkins!

Each family of pupils attending the school at Collis Sandes was given the seasonal fruit to carve at home and they brought them in on Friday to display their work.

The Home School Community Liaison with Tralee Educate Together, Caroline Doody, explained the idea behind the exercise.

“We usually run initiatives whereby parents come into the school for literacy, numeracy and science games with the children.¬†As this is not possible at present, parents and pupils were invited to engage in a family activity at home, namely pumpkin carving. The aim of such exercises is also to foster positive attitudes towards school,” she said.

“They were given the pumpkins last Friday and every family in the school took part. They have come up with some amazing ideas and it’s been an enjoyable exercise for everyone here, ” said Caroline.

The children, accompanied by the teachers, went out into the nearby garden dressed in their costumes to parade with their pumpkins during the morning.
