A visit from Santa

We were delighted to welcome Santa at Togher N.S. At this time of year Santa is busy checking his Naughty or Nice lists and we were delighted to learn that all our children are currently on the Nice list. Santa also brought some small gifts for the children.

Christmas Wreaths

Stephanie from the Heritage in Schools showed the children how to make simple Christmas Wreaths using willow from the school garden and greenery sourced by the children – a huge thank you to the parents for their help. The children made beautiful, locally sourced and sustainable Christmas decorations.

Christmas Wreaths

The children were delighted to welcome Stephanie from Heritage in Schools to learn about crafting Christmas Wreaths. Christmas Wreaths created from natural materials like willow, holly, evergreens  and ivy are both inexpensive and fun to make.  A huge thank you to the parents that helped gather the greenery. The children created some wonderful Christmas wreaths.


Christmas Ukulele

It’s December so it’s finally time to break out the Christmas songs. The children in the Senior Room enjoyed practicing the chords of some of their favourite Christmas songs on ukulele.

Christmas Cakes

It is an old tradition for 5th and 6th classes to make a Christmas cake. We kept the tradition again this year, using the usual recipe and using no electric mixers ! Just some good old elbow grease.

The children mixed the ingredients perfectly using a wooden spoon, while chatting happily. The cakes all turned out brilliantly in the end. We are all eager to eat the cakes after the delicious Christmas dinner as we are certain the cakes will be scrumptious. We all enjoyed the cake making process!
