After the soup and brown bread the children enjoyed some wonderful Halloween treats. Many thanks to Viktoriya (Teja’s mum) for these delicious, spooky cakes
The children enjoyed the pumpkin soup and brown bread during our Halloween Feast. It’s always a great occasion when everyone is together eating and chatting in the same room.

We welcomed ghosts, ghouls, witches, dinosaurs and many other strange creatures to Togher N.S. for our Halloween Party. A huge thank you to all those that helped the children with their wonderful creative costumes. We hope you enjoy our Halloween video.
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. We love the festival of Samhain at Togher N.S. The children in the Senior Room celebrated the spooky season by creating these wonderful Halloween artworks this week.
Togher’s Got Talent is one of the best days of the school year. The children treated us to some wonderful singing, gymnastics, drama, magic, instrument playing and even voice acting as part of Togher’s Got Talent. This annual event is a fun, engaging way for the children to show off something they are good at, practice performing, stand in front of an audience (or send a video) and receive positive feedback for their efforts. Congratulations to all the children that took part.
We hope you enjoy our Halloween Parade video.
The ancient Celtic festival of Samhain celebrated 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.
