Dunmanway Fire Brigade

Dunmanway Fire Brigade visited Togher N.S. to help the children understand the importance of fire safety. A huge thank you to Phillip Kelleher, Station Officer of Dunmanway Fire Brigade, for calling to the school to talk about fire safety in our homes and to present the children with their new and very informative Fire Safety Booklet. The children learned very important points on how we can keep our homes safe from fire and what to do in the event of a fire. Of course no visit from the Fire Brigade is complete without a full investigation of the equipment on the fire engine.

 

Excellent Attendance

Roger from the S.C.P. called today to give the children their Excellent Attendance Certificates and prizes. Students who attend school regularly feel more connected to their community and develop important social skills and friendships. 

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways to prepare a child for success—both in school and in life.

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.
