We have been able to offer a range of super workshops and activities through the Extended Schools programme.
At present we have a weekly Basketball Club which is led by one of our teachers, Mrs Elaine Diamond and Mrs Stephanie Peoples is her assistant. The pupils love this sport and the feedback has been fantastic! Photos to follow.

This year is so exciting for our pupils and a number of pupils from local primary schools. We are delighted to have a wider range of clubs on offer on a weekly basis and feel they really do meet the needs of a wider range of our pupils. It is super to be able to provide these opportunities after school. They form a key part of our pupils weekly routine and provide them with many opportunities they would not otherwise have access to.
The varied activities offered through the Extended Schools programme are designed to support learning and promote healthy lifestyles, raise school standards while engaging schools with their local community and connecting people with local services. We also aim to involve parents, families and the wider community in the life of the school.
We were delighted that the Minister for Education committed additional funding to further support the Extended Schools programme up to March 2015 with over £12 million having again been made available to nearly 500 eligible schools in 2014/15. We trust the Extended Schools Programme continues in Kilronan, so that our pupils and those in the other schools benefit from such opportunities.
