In September 2012 the PTA sourced providers and ran the first afterschool programme. Classes are offered to junior and senior infants from 1pm to 2pm and first to sixth class from 2pm to 3pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Pupils have had a chance to try out:
Parents were involved from the start by suggesting activities and teachers. Parents of children attending the classes helped to make it all happen by signing up to one hour supervision on a rota lasting for the duration of the course and were Garda Siochana vetted as required by Child Protection Guidelines.
The PTA aims to continue the afterschool programme into the future as long as the school building and staff can accommodate it.
