After school activities

AFTER SCHOOLS ACTIVITIES 2019-2020

Dear Parents,

The general feedback on how we enrolled children for after school activities in previous years was that queuing system just wasn’t working. Parents also found our online option very frustrating.

With this in mind, we have decided to pilot a new system this year bearing in mind that most children were successful in securing a place in their preferred activity in previous years.

Children who were enrolled in Art, Basketball, GAA Football and Theatre Group for 2018-2019 will have first preference to re-enrol for next year. To secure your offered place, you need to pay a deposit of €30 online by Thursday 27th June at 9am. A payment link will be emailed separately to you this evening. Any remaining places will go into a lottery and the lottery draw will take place on Friday 28th June after the Uniform Sale at 11.00am. You are welcome to attend the draw.

If you would like your child’s name to be included in the lottery, please email the office stating the Activity and Day of choice e.g. Joe Blogs, Room 20, Art Tuesday.

If your child is successful in securing a place in the lottery you will receive an online payment link to pay the deposit by Wednesday 3rd July. If no deposit is received, we will offer the place to the next drawn ticket.

For 3rd Class 2019-2020 Students ONLY

As these students have not previously been enrolled in Art, Basketball, GAA Football or Theatre Group, places will be offered through the lottery system only. Please email the office stating the Activity and Day of choice e.g. Joe Blogs, Room 20, Art Tuesday. Their names are then put into the draw taking place on Friday 28th June.

If you have any difficulty in making a payment at this time, please contact me before Thursday 27th June at 9.00am.
