We have received confirmation from the Education Authority that physical youth work will be permitted from 1 October, with a maximum of 10 participants per session. However, contact sports and games are not permitted at the club yet and it is anticipated that focus will be on non-contact games, arts, crafts, discussion and music work, etc. We would like expressions of interest for children to register to give us an idea of numbers so we can explore possibilities for the youth clubs to recommence.
In the case of the R4 to R7 club, we are considering organising a weekly club on Thursday evenings in Sherry’s Field as usual, with an opportunity for 10 children from each class group to attend on a particular week. For example, Thursday 1 October Rang 4, Thursday 8 October Rang 5, Thursday 15 October Rang 6, Thursday 22 October Rang 7, Thursday 29 October mid-term, Thursday 5 November Rang 4, Thursday 12 November Rang 5, etc.
In case of the post-primary club, we could organise a weekly club at Aonach Mhacha on Tuesdays after school for example, with an opportunity for 10 young people from a specific year group or groups to attend on a particular week.
In order to ascertain interest, please register your child’s interest by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 028 3799 8160 or by private message on Cairde Teo Facebook with the name, class or year group, school, contact number and email address by Friday 25 September.
