Sports Day

We had a fantastic day at the Sports Day in Kealkill. Over 500 children gathered to run, pull, hop, throw, wheelbarrow and dance at this wonderful event. A big thank you to Kealkil N.S. for organising this hugely enjoyable Sports Day.

 

The science of bridge building

The children in the Senior Room have been studying the science of bridge building. They were given the challenge of designing and building a simple bridge using paper, glue and some sticky tape. The finished bridges were then tested using plastic cubes.

Clay Hedgehogs

The children in the Junior Room have been learning about autumn. Some Irish animals, including the hedgehog, are getting ready for their winter hibernation. The children in the junior room enjoyed making these lovely clay hedgehogs.

International Dot Day

We like to make an International Dot Day video every year but unfortunately this hasn’t been possible for the last few years. The current 6th class did feature in the last video we made – mind you they look a bit younger!

International Dot Day

Thursday the 15th of September was International Dot Day. The inspiration behind International Dot Day is the children’s book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds which encourages students to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration. In the build up to Dot Day the children in Togher N.S. engage in many artistic activities – dedicated to getting the children to fearlessly make their mark on the world!

Pencil Drawing

Every great artist develops their skill and passion somewhere. Learning how to draw and sketch is also a great foundation for children to learn the elements of design. At Togher N.S. the children really enjoy developing their drawing skills.
