MOUNTHAWK HITS THE CATWALK FOR ANNUAL SHOW
HUNDREDS PACK INTO MOUNTHAWK GYM TO WITNESS STUDENTS STRUT THEIR STUFF AS PART OF ‘NEW YORK’ THEME
THE transition year fashion show has become an annual tradition for the students at Mercy Mounthawk and as always, this years event proved to be a huge success.
Last Thursday was the turn of this years batch of students to strut their stuff on the catwalk and it was a role they took to with gusto as they embraced this years theme of ‘New York, New York’.
Dressed to the nines is the only way to describe the students on stage as they the latest fashion from local stores and designers, including Jasmine, Annburys, Aoife Hannon, Fascinators by Frances and Rita Zachar.
Now into its fifteenth year, hundreds of people filed through the doors of the school to not only show their support for the school, but to also support the two chosen charities chosen by the students.
These were Muscular Dystrophy Ireland, the Nano Nagle School Listowel and the school’s own Transition Year.
While it looked like the biggest cheer of the night would belong to the teaching staff who dressed up as ‘Sex and the City’ characters, they were pipped at the end by the undisputed stars of the show - the ‘Inspired’ group who almost brought the house down with the applause they received.
The students reserved special thanks to their teachers, Ms Stacey O’Leary, Ms Emma Nolan, Ms Karen O’Carroll and Ms Shauna Williams who were instrumental in helping the students to organise a great night out for all.
