The children in Miss Daly’s room had great fun making pottery and molding with clay. It can be a bit messy but Togher N.S. is a “hands on, minds on” school – we like messy!
We celebrated International Dot Day last week. 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. This day is dedicated to getting children to fearlessly make their mark on the world!

Some lovely artwork to brighten our day.
The children in 3rd and 4th class explored the artworks of the American artist Bill Scott. Scott is a contemporary abstract painter who’s artworks blur the boundaries between abstraction and representation. Scott’s work continues the tradition of abstracted landscapes that draw on both nature and the imagination. The children were inspired by Bill Scott’s artworks to create their own abstract landscape paintings.
