Scavenger Hunt

The children in Miss M. Daly’s room enjoyed a scavenger hunt in the school grounds last week. A scavenger hunt is a great fun activity that allows children to get outside, get active and develop an appreciation of nature.

Welcome Back Celebration

The children were delighted to hear the jingle of the ice-cream van as it pulled into Togher N.S. The children were soon enjoying their  ice-cream cones to celebrate the full reopening of our school. Many thanks to our wonderful Parents Association for facilitating this lovely celebration treat.

Back to school

The younger children were delighted to be back to school and they were even more delighted to find that they have the entire school yard to themselves. They were determined to take full advantage of all the extra space.

Farm safety webinar

The children in the Junior room really enjoyed their webinar on Farm Safety. The children learnt how to recognise some of the safety signs on a typical farm, creating a farm safety checklist  and learning the behavioural signs shown by animals, including bulls, horses and dogs. The children are really looking forward to our next webinar on farm machinery safety.
