Homework Club

Contact Ms. Donoher 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.

Lego Club

St Francis Xavier SNS Lego Club has helped children to develop their creative side, improve their motor skills, enhance concentration, and further develop their problem-solving skills. Pupils in Lego Club enjoy creating wonderful pieces based on themes such as Myself, Sport, Home, and Transport and of course Halloween, Christmas and Easter along with other special occasions.
