This year the horticulture module grew our own pumpkins for the Halloween season. We were happy to be given the task of carving out some Jack-O-Lanterns to decorate the centre for our annual Halloween party.
“This year I carved a pumpkin for Halloween. I found the image I wanted to carve on the Internet, it was of Frankenstein. Carving it out was a bit difficult. This year I used a drill to make some of the smaller holes, which worked out great. I was very pleased with the end result.” – Matthew Colgan“I carved a pumpkin in the art class for Halloween. The design I choose was of Jack from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’. I found some great designs for pumpkin carving on our new ipad. I must remember them for next year.” – Suzanne Hyland “We got the pumpkins off Martin in the garden. First we cleaned the pumpkins out, then we looked at some pumpkin pictures, then we drew onto the pumpkin and then we carved them out. When they were finished we took photographs of them and decorated the canteen with them for the Halloween party.” – Edward Gannon
“My pumpkin was two faced. One side was evil and the other was happy. If you looked inside the eyes of the evil side you could see the omen or the evil me. To be honest I messed up one side so I created another side of the pumpkin. I think that was very creative of me.” – Craig Halpin
