Aftercare & Extra-Curricular Activities – We are hopeful that we will be in a position to restart our aftercare and extra-curricular activities on a phased basis at the start of the new school year. Our first priority will be our aftercare for Junior and Senior Infants from 1.20 – 2.20, followed by extra-curricular activities, and lastly, we will look at an extension of hours in our aftercare. We will update further nearer to the time.

Are you leaving WETNS? If you are planning to leave the school at the end of the year please let us know, in writing, at your earliest convenience.
