Icecream!

The children were delighted to hear the jingle of the ice-cream van as it pulled into Togher N.S. The children were soon enjoying their  ice-cream cones to celebrate the Summer holidays. Many thanks to our wonderful Board of Management for facilitating this lovely treat.

Pizzas!

Thanks so much to Andrew and Martina Healy of SuperValu for donating scrumptious pizzas to us today along with bottles of water.

Everybody loved this wonderful surprise. Thanks to Maura O Connell for delivering them.

Picker Pals

We are delighted to be involved in Picker Pals an innovative primary school programme inspiring and equipping children to become the next generation of environmentalists by leading their families on local litter-picking adventures.
