Five groups from our school competed in the Regional finals of this year’s Junk Kouture competition at the Helix in Dublin last week. Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture is a national contest which encourages young designers in second level education to create striking couture designs and impressive works of wearable art from everyday junk that would normally find its way into the bin. Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture aims to inspire and ignite passion in these teenagers while at the same time subtly educating them about the importance of recycling and reusing waste. Over the last six years, Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture has established itself as the premier recycled fashion competition for teenagers throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland and in 2015 extended its creative platform to Scotland. Big congratulations to Sarah Dunican, a transition year student, who was successful in making it to the National Finals which will be held in the 3 Arena on April 27th. We wish Sarah and her teacher Ms. Henriques the best of luck in the final.
