Homework Club

Homework Club is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2.30-3.30p.m. for 4th to 6th class and from 2:30-3:05 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd  classes.  It is supervised by a teacher. Students receive all the help and support they require in addition to being encouraged to work independently. We have THREE clubs in operation, one for 1st and 2nd, 3rd and seniors.
