Sciath na Scol.

We enjoyed a wonderful day of GAA football at Doheny’s GAA grounds in Dunmanway. Togher N.S. played Darrara N.S, Reenascreena N.S. and St. Enda’s N.S.  It was another lovely day for football. A huge thank you to the many supporters that came to cheer on the team and the very best of luck to St. Enda’s N.S. in the final.

Wellbeing Week

The children really enjoyed a wide range of wellbeing activities this week. They had great fun during Cosmic Kids Yoga, Mindfulness, Essential Oils Air Fresheners, Peer Reading and Peer Yard Games. It’s great to bring the older and younger children together for these activities. Activities involving the younger and older children helps the children to build social relationships which provide opportunities for friendship, empathy and shared emotions.

Pointillism

Pointillism is a fun painting technique that involves creating an image using small, distinct dots of colour. The children in the Junior Room created these wonderful pointillism artworks this week.

Sacrament of Confirmation

Congratulations to our children who received the Sacrament of Confirmation yesterday. Thanks to Fr. Tom Hayes, Fr. Pat O’Donovan and Fr. Crowley for a wonderful ceremony.

Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny paid an early visit to Togher N.S. The children were delighted to search for the little treats he left for them in the school-yard.

Easter Wreaths

Easter doesn’t fall on the same date every year because Easter is always on the first Sunday after the first full moon that follows the spring equinox. We were delighted to welcome Stephanie from Heritage in Schools to explain the moon cycle and to help create these beautiful Easter Wreaths.

Lá Glas

On Friday we held a Lá Glas to mark the end of Seachtain na Gaeilge! The children made brown bread and butter as part of our celebrations.
