The Easter Bunny was very busy at Togher N.S. He dropped Easter eggs for the children in the Junior classroom and Easter eggs in the school grounds for the Senior pupils. All the children had great fun searching and they were truly delighted when they found the items left by the Easter bunny.
We are sad to say he didn’t leave anything for the teachers!
The Lifelong Learning Festival runs for Monday 8th April to Saturday 13th April and features dozens of free events, talks and workshops all over Cork City & County. Dunmanway is no exception! There are free workshops and talks which are mainly open to adults, brochures for the festival are available in the library and in many outlets in the town.
In keeping with the theme of lifelong learning there is a family quiz available from Dunmanway Library which encourages adults and children to explore a little bit of the town and use a little bit of Irish. “Discover Dún Mhánmhaí as Gaeilge” is a short quiz that can be taken away, completed and returned to the library. Prizes include family passes to Dunmanway Swimming Pool, Family passes to Dunmanway Pitch & Putt Club and a hamper of books.
Copies of the quiz were distributed to pupils in 3rd – 6th class.

We were delighted our pupils performed so well tonight at the quiz in Dunmanway.
This week we have been developing our Gaelic Football skills. The weather over the last few days has been fantastic so we took the opportunity to get out to the football pitch and hone our soloing, hand-passing, kicking and catching skills. Then it was time for a game of Gaelic Football in the warm sunshine.
We were delighted to receive an ALDI Play rugby Pack after completing a 4 week block with Damien Hicks.
We look forward to putting the gear to good use.
