Back To School

We were delighted to welcome the children back to Togher National School following the summer holidays. We are all looking forward to the exciting school year ahead.

Circus Tricks

The Great Gusto brought a lot of fun juggling and circus equipment along with him. The younger children were soon learning about balance and hand-eye co-ordination as they practiced their circus tricks.


The Great Gusto

We were delighted to welcome The Great Gusto to Togher N.S. to teach the children juggling and other circus tricks. To demonstrate his gymnastic and juggling skills he required a couple of hapless “volunteers”. I don’t think the children and the other members of staff have ever laughed so much.

Graduation Celebration

We said farewell to our current sixth class at our Graduation Celebration this week. We wish them the very best of luck in Secondary school and we know they will all do well. They will be truly missed here but they will always be welcome back at Togher N.S. We had a wonderful night looking back at their time in Togher N.S. and listening to their memories of primary school. The graduation night also featured Medal Presentations, Graduation Gifts, Slideshows, Fís Films and wonderful treats and cakes (A huge thank you to the parents that brought these tasty treats). Thanks to everyone that facilitated this wonderful night.

Ice Cream Time

We have had some wonderful weather recently and we are all hoping for a long hot summer but this being Ireland nothing is certain weather-wise. Miss O’Connell is retiring and decided to treat the children to an ice cream while the sky is mostly blue and the sun is shining.

Flower Pressing

The beautiful flowers we picked a couple of weeks ago have been pressed and dried. It was now time to identify their English, Irish and Latin names and present them on acid free paper. Stephanie from Heritage in schools showed the children how to arrange and display the pressed flowers. The children then created lovely artworks with the remaining flowers.
