It looks like The Easter Bunny paid an early visit to Togher N.S. The children had great fun searching for their early Easter treats.
We were all delighted here at Togher N.S. to be chosen as the Healthy Heroes school of the month for April. Healthy Heroes is one of Ireland’s leading primary school nutrition programmes. Health Heroes Lunch Club helps to foster a sense of teamwork and communication skills, to encourage children to choose healthy lunch options, to educate them about nutrition and to boost their activity levels during the school day, all whilst having lots of fun. Togher N.S. is a school where physical activity is valued, promoted and enjoyed by all. The school has Active School Flag status and participates in The Food Dudes healthy eating programme, developed to encourage children to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables.
We were delighted to learn that the Sciath na Scol GAA competition is returning this year. The weather has been lovely so it was straight down to the Sports Field to get some practice in. We often practice in the school yard but there’s nothing like playing on the full pitch to develop movement and positioning skills.
This week all the children have enjoyed an extra daily portion of fruit and vegetables and learned about healthy eating as part of the Food Dude programme. The Food Dudes programme is designed to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. Learn more about Food Dudes here.
