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 Monday evenings in Sherry’s Field 6pm to 7pm, with an opportunity for 10 children from each class group to attend on a particular week. For example, Monday 5 October Rang 4, Monday 12 October Rang 5, Monday 19 October Rang 6, Monday 26 October Rang 7, Monday 2 November mid-term, Monday 9 November Rang 4, Monday 16 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.
