After School Club
Afterschool club runs on Wednesday afternoons from 3 o'clock until half past 5 at a cost of £2 per week. After School club is open to pupils aged ten years and over and currently there are twenty two pupils attending regularly.
So far this year we have been to see Cinderella in the Opera House in Belfast, a youth group from Ballymote Sports and Wellbeing Centre joined us. We meet up with this group on the last Wednesday of each month to take part in joint activities, this year we made Christmas cakes which we raffled off to raise money for a future activity.
Afterschool club have adopted Benji the donkey and he came to visit the whole school in November. We worked with Sarah Kileff an artist from Down Community Arts came to our afterschool club for over four weeks and she helped us decorate the front hall for winter.
For the boys we had Michael a basketball coach and the girls went to a local hair salon to have their nails painted and hairs style.
Montella Animals came in at the beginning of the year and we had so much fun touching and learning about the animals that they are coming in again and we can't wait! Joe brought in his drums and we all had a turn at seeing who could bang the drum the loudest, it was a very noisy day. We also went on a trip to the cinema and for dinner in Norma J's, it was delicious.
We have lots more fun activities planned for the rest of the year! What a busy time we are going to have!
