Dear Parents/ Guardians,
We are currently looking at our After-School Activities for the coming year. This is a year like no other and we are at all times obliged to operate within the Health and Safety Guidelines for schools.
We are pleased to announce that our Basketball and Gaelic (for 3rd -6th Class) will go ahead on our return to school. Places will be offered first to those who were enrolled last year. Should any additional places become available we will be in touch with the enrolment process.
We are also looking at the possibility of offering CrossFit as an after-school activity. More details to follow.
Unfortunately, all our indoor activities held in the school including Art, French, Guitar, Science and Theatre Group are postponed for now. We will review the situation again at the end of September.
If you would like to talk to Sinead McKeever (086-864 0322) French Teacher or Marc Roche (086-3935142) Guitar Teacher regarding online classes, please contact them directly.
Diane Cahill our Tennis teacher is hoping to continue with Short Tennis lesson for Junior Infants to 2nd Class but will be unable to confirm until late August.
Swimming and Athletics is run by Shoreline but organised through the school. Shoreline will be in contact with us regarding classes for the Autumn in due course.
I would love if all the activities could have proceeded on our return to school as I know the boys and girls have been looking forward to getting back to doing what they like best. Fingers crossed things may change over the coming weeks and we will get back to a more normal school year.

Classes in these activities take place after school hours and details will be 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.
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.
Children attending swimming lessons must be accompanied and supervised by parents at all times while at Shoreline Leisure Pool.
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.
Some of these activities are weather dependant. We will notify parents by text if there are any changes to these times.
