After School Clubs and Activities


A number of after-school activities are available to our pupils.

Some of these activities are run by the school and other are run independently of the school and any queries should be directed to the individual class instructors.

People who provide private classes on the school premises agree to the Board of Management’s policy for these activities and sign a contract.

They must also familiarise themselves with the relevant school policies.

They are all Garda vetted.

They are responsible for the children at all times while on the premises.


The following schedule is for 2019 / 2020

Details of classes from September 2019 will be posted here at the end of August when the activity schedule has been finalised.

All bookings, enquiries and payment regarding these classes are to be made directly to the instructor.

Updates and further information on upcoming classes is displayed on the school Facebook page.

Classes will only run if there are sufficient numbers of pupils.

At the end of the school day, pupils will leave the classroom as normal with their class teacher to await collection. The responsibility lies with parents to ensure that their child is aware if they are attending an after school activity.
