This After School Activity Programme offers a safe, familiar and convenient setting for an age-appropriate introduction to after-school physical activity for 7-8 year old children. It is led by teachers who are trained to work with volunteer parents in order to provide quality opportunities to be active based on the primary school physical education curriculum.
Its aim is to improve the physical activity patterns of school children by introducing them, and their parents, to a wide variety of activities in a fun, supportive, positive environment. See www.beactiveasap.ie for information on the programme.
This club is run by Karen in the pre-school. It is available Monday to Friday. Contact Karen O’Rourke on 086-3718444.
