Article 31 UNICEF Rights of the Child states that every child has the right to relax, play and join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities. We therefore offer our children the following:
There are various instruments that children are able to learn during the school day. The cost of these varies and all information regarding payment should be addressed to Mrs Eileen Mahony, the music teacher. Information regarding the music lessons and instruments should also be made to Mrs Eileen Mahony. Currently we have tutors for piano, keyboards, drums, guitar, saxophone, flute, brass and clarinet.
There are games and activities available to the children during the lunch break, these include puzzle club and various playground games. Children will be informed as to what there is on offer.
The school ambassadors run the puzzle club on a daily basis; the playleaders are also on duty every day to encourage the children to play games, introduce new games and ensure the games are inclusive. The peer mediators are also on duty every day to sort out any issues that may occur.
The children that are school ambassadors, playleaders and peer mediators have all undertaken relevant training.
The school library is available at various times for the children to exchange their books or sit and read.
