The staff in Ramsgrange National School fully embraced the Halloween season last week when they dressed up in kids uniforms - much to the amusement of the children.

The school principal, Lorraine Kennedy, said the school has been doing it for three years and the pupils always think it's hilarious.

'The pupils think it's hilarious to see us dressed as them and it creates a lovely sense of friendship and pride,' she said.

'The children like that we dress up like them,' she added.

The parents and guardians also think it's funny and they appreciate the fact the teachers make the effort to dress up for their children.

The dress-up day served a dual purpose as it was organised by Ms Kennedy to raise funds for the school.

There is a strong bond between the teachers and pupils in the school and events like the dress-up day serve to enhance the relationship between staff members and the schoolchildren.
