We have decided to visit the fashion capitals of Europe – London, Paris, Milan and Togher. Obviously we would like to get through Britain before the chaos of Brexit so we have been very busy on our Active Walkway. We have completed 263 km which means we have started to row our way across the Irish Sea.
The new swimming pool in Dunmanway is a fantastic facility that benefits the entire community. Swimming is not only enjoyable, but it also provides a multitude of physical benefits. It allows children to develop water safety and survival skills, builds strength, muscle tone and assists with balance and coordination. The children at Togher N.S. always enjoy their swimming time.
We were delighted to welcome our past pupils Alice, Daniel, Muirís, Oisín and Shauna to Togher N.S. Everyone was eager to hear about how they were getting on in secondary school. They were soon catching up with old friends and even helped out with the garden work. It was great to see you all again – you are always more than welcome.
It was a beautiful day so we decided to tidy up the garden ready for the winter. We would like to thank Cassie (Kimi, Levi and Evan’s Mum ) for the huge amount of work she has done in the school garden. We would also like to thank Senan (Connie’s Dad) and Don O’Leary for delivering the decorative stone. The children were soon busy digging into the heap of stone and spreading it over the weed control barrier. There’s nothing like a bit of enthusiasm and team work for getting a job done.
The children were busy in the school garden planting seedlings, weeding, composting and giving the garden a general clean up. The children were delighted to learn about companion planting, aerobic composting and slug defenses from Jessica and they were even more delighted to get stuck into the gardening – the weeds didn’t stand a chance!
