Teachers and students from Bunclody Vocational College swapped the classroom for the catwalk recently as the Parent's Association hosted a fundraising fashion show at The Millrace Hotel. The Parent's Association have been extremely active in raising funds for the school in recent years and this event proved to be one of the biggest yet with a capacity crowd in attendance on the night.

All the latest winter fashions were on show with clothes from Finesse Boutique in Carnew, Ken Rothwell Bunclody, Elegance Bunclody, Put a Bow on It in Enniscorthy and Mary Elizabeth Boutique also in Enniscorthy. There was doubts as to whether some of the teachers would make it into school again on Monday morning or whether they would be snapped up by a big modelling agency for the catwalks of Paris and Milan.

Principal James Murphy, who himself took a turn on the catwalk, said that it was a great night.

'It went really well,' he said. 'We had a massive crowd and we had to bring in more chairs and everything. A lot of work went in on the part of the Parent's Association and I'd like to thank them along with the businesses who took part. Without them it wouldn't have happened and I'd encourage everybody to shop local this Christmas and support these businesses that are supporting us and their local community.'

With the funds raised, the school hope to launch an in-school radio station over the coming weeks.
