After School Activities

After School Clubs at SFX Senior 2019/20

Homework Club

Contact Ms. Donoher Room 9 or school office for forms.

Homework Club is co-ordinated by Ms. Donoher. Homework Club runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 2.30 and 3.30pm. The teachers assist the children with their homework and scaffold. At the end of the homework club, all homework and spellings are checked and the journals are signed.

This is a great way for children who may find it difficult to concentrate at home to complete their homework. The children have an opportunity to have all their work completed and have more time for extracurricular activities outside of school.
