June 2020 Update:
Unfortunately the Afterschool Service is no longer in operation due to service grant cutbacks.
We hope to be in a position to reopen an afterschool service in the future.
Thank you to all those who contributed to this great club, in so many ways, for so many years. We are sad to have lost such a great service in our community.
The Afterschool Service is funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) who pay a a subvention payment per child, determined by their parent/guardian status with the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection. The Programme covers the academic year starting in September and finishing in July. Each member is required to pay a weekly fee based upon their parent/guardian income status. The Afterschool Service provides support for parents on a low income to avail of reduced childcare costs at our community childcare service.
Opening Times are:
Monday – Thursday 2.30 – 5.00pm
Fridays 2.30 – 3.45pm
Children come directly from their class to the club at the end of the day. They are given a hot meal, supervised and assisted completing their homework. They are then free to take part in activities for the evening.
The club is supervised by Teachers, SNA’s and Childcare staff.
