Dunmanway Fire Brigade

Dunmanway Fire Brigade visited Togher N.S. to help the children understand the importance of fire safety. A huge thank you to Phillip Kelleher, Station Officer of Dunmanway Fire Brigade, for calling to the school to talk about fire safety in our homes and to present the children with their new and very informative Fire Safety Booklet. The children learned very important points on how we can keep our homes safe from fire and what to do in the event of a fire. Of course no visit from the Fire Brigade is complete without a full investigation of the equipment on the fire engine.



We were delighted to welcome Adrian Boyle to Togher N.S. again. During his last visit Adrian introduced the children to hand drumming with a selection of drums from Asia and Africa.  For this lesson Adrian helped the children develop and improve their drumming skills and they were soon producing an impressive drum beat.


Coding with Photon

The children are having a wonderful time learning with the Photon Robot. The Photon is an interactive educational robot that introduces children to the world of new technologies through experiences and experiments, develops their creativity and logical thinking, and teaches them the basics of programming.


St. Valentine’s Day

We were very busy this week getting all loved up ready for St. Valentine’s Day. The children in the Senior Room made beautiful Willow Love Hearts and Valentine’s Cards for the big day. Many thanks to Katrin for all her help with this Arts and Crafts activity.

The children really enjoyed another Yoga session this week. These weekly Yoga sessions have helped the children to enhance their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness while also improving their concentration and sense of calmness.

Many thanks to our wonderful Parents Association who funded this activity.
