Halloween party

The children enjoyed some wonderful Halloween treats during our Halloween party while listening to some spooky songs and creating some Halloween arts and crafts.

Thanks so much to Hayley, Gráinne and Viktoriya for the amazing treats! They were delicious.

Our children have such great imaginations. It was wonderful to see all the fabulous Halloween costumes for our Halloween celebrations. We hope you enjoy our Halloween Parade video.

Halloween party

The children in the Middle Room enjoyed eating báirín breac and other treats, dancing to spooky songs and creating Halloween Cards as part of our Halloween celebrations.

Halloween Celebration

Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain used to celebrate the passing from summer to winter. People disguised themselves using animal skins to protect against evil spirits on the prowl and lit fires to guide the good spirits during Samhain. Households would also carve scary faces into turnips and leave them at the doorstep to warn off evil spirits. We love dressing up at Togher N.S. and there were some wonderful costumes on display for our Halloween celebrations.



Happy Halloween

We would like to wish all our children a Happy Halloween as they head out “Trick or Treating” If you are stuck for a song here are the words to An Púca!

“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Púca! Púca! Aon-dó-trí!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A théim ar cuairt chun do thí,
Chun do thí!”

“Púca! Púca! Ní tusa an púca!
Tusa Seáinín Beag Ó Laoi!
Seo í an oíche, Oíche Shamhna
A bhíonn tú ag súgradh aon, dó, trí,
Aon, dó, trí.”

“Púca! Púca! Is mise an púca!
Ní mise in aochor Seán Ó Laoi!
Féach ar m’fhiacla! Féach im ’shúile
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Béarfaidh mé anocht ort, anocht a chroí,
Anocht a chroí!”

Have a great night and keep safe.
