The After School Service

The After School Service

The After School Service is a popular feature of the programmes and projects on offer at “Cox’s Demesne Youth & Community Project” (The House). It is funded by the National Childcare Investment  Programme and is delivered in close co-operation with the Redeemer Boys and Girls school.

Overall Aim – “To offer a quality child-centred service to children aged 4-12 years in Cox’s Demesne, enabling their personal, social and educational development"

The Service consists of The Activity Club for 4 – 6 years and it takes place in the Redeemer Boys School. Activities include art & crafts, drama, storytelling & play.

The Homework Club caters for 6-12 years and also takes place daily in the Redeemer Boys School where the children receive assistance and help in completing their homework. Transition year students from Dun Lughaidh Secondary School help out and provide positive role models.

Part Time After School Care – this provides an opportunity for 28 children to receive afterschool care each day. This involves homework support which takes place in the school and then they come to “The House” where they receive their dinner and engage in developmental activities e.g. computers, cooking, arts & crafts and personal development groupwork.

The homework Club provides children a place to do their homework under adult supervision

The Friday Project

The Friday Project is operation for over 20 years and operates in partnership with both the Redeemer Boys & Girls school. Ten young people take part and attend the project every Friday from 9.00am to 3.00pm. The day is structured and programmes in small group settings are designed to promote self-esteem, develop new skills and to enhance their education. Activities include personal development groupwork, computer skills, arts & crafts, cooking, sports and outdoor pursuits. There is a rotation policy each school term so that more young people can avail of the opportunity. In the course of one year up to 20 young people can participate.
