Please wear normal full school uniform in on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and bring a pair of runners for the activities. On Wednesdays children will be in their PE Uniform as normal.

Each session will cost £2.00 and this is to be paid up front to ensure a place; sessions in this block will run for 7-8 weeks this term.

(Please note that at the 3.00-4.00pm Clubs; for Health and Safety Reason and due to both older children being present and the type of activities used at the later session to suit the P4-P7 Age Group the younger children may just be supervised from time to time and therefore may not able to take part in all of the activities.
