Follow same times as per phase (M/Tu/Th) timetable but for the FP the day is extended until 14h15 so they can take part in Cycle Tests, Extra Murals clubs , and societies.

Extra-mural’ literally means ‘beyond the walls’.  Extra-murals are key to a balanced curriculum, healthy lifestyles and an enhanced school experience. Wednesday times have been changed to INTEGRATE a structured Extra Mural programme whereby the entire school will be involved in some cultural club or sporting activity. The integrated extra-mural programme during school time aims to revitalise the school-day and curriculum as well. The purpose of the programme is to expand learning and recreational opportunities, provide our children with holistic support and expanded opportunities.
