After School Activities

After School Activities

Activities take place after school hours and details are made available in early September. All classes are provided by suitably qualified personnel.

Please note the following: Our duty of care ends at 1.40p.m. /2.40p.m. when children are dismissed from school. Our duty of care is extended to 3.45p.m. when children undertake Board of Management-approved activities in school or on school grounds. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that children are collected on time from after-school activities.

It is also the responsibility of parents to ensure that children who have enrolled for an after-school activity on the school grounds turn up for the activity and remain on the school grounds until the activity is finished. If children enrol for an activity at another location, e.g. Kilian House, Eire Óg, Shoreline or the athletics grounds, it is the responsibility of parents to bring their children to the correct location, supervise them and collect them on time.

Only children who enrol for an after-school activity may stay at school for that activity. A child participating in after-school activities may not leave the school grounds before or during the activity, e.g. between 2.40p.m. and 3.40p.m.

Short tennis

A parent must accompany any child who does short tennis after school on Tuesdays to Kilian House Family Centre. Children are not to be left unsupervised /unaccompanied while waiting for their coaching session. The school has no responsibility for supervision before, during or after short tennis in Kilian House.  Please note that Kilian House does not provide supervision. The short tennis coach is fully occupied coaching and cannot attend to children waiting for the next class. It has been brought to the principal’s attention that some children are running on the stairs outside the centre and/or running in the car park while waiting – this is something that is of great concern.


New for 2022/2023 – PE Swimming Strand (3rd, 4th and 5th )

Swimming is no longer an extra curricular activity outside school hours. Instead lessons have been arranged for 3rd, 4th and 5th on Thursdays at Shoreline for the coming school year. 4th will do 10 weeks in Term 1, 3rd will do 10 weeks in Term 2 and 3rd will do 8 weeks in Term 3.


Children are given the opportunity to learn sporting and athletics skills from experienced trainers with their classmates in an excellent facility at a low cost group rate. Parents are asked to volunteer one hour of their time per term to help supervise at the venue.
