CLUB ARDAGH - Club Ardagh took part in the national pyjama day on Friday last 25th March 2011. A very enjoyable day was had by both staff and children and funds were raised for.

The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) Hospice Homecare for Children programme. This is a very worthy cause and it was a great excuse to have a PJ day at work. We thank all who donated to this worthy cause and all the parents for their support on this day.

Club Ardagh are hoping to run a study skills seminar on a date during the easter break. This seminar is aimed at all second level students with two seminars taking place on the day, one for first to third years and the other for 4th to leaving certificate. Sometimes students can spend hours studying but if they dont have the essential skills and know how to study then hours of studying may not be as beneficial as it should be. This seminar will be carried out by qualified teachers who have a vast experience in all areas of second level education. Are you interested, if so contact Club Ardagh at 043 6675797 for further details.


Easter Camps will take place in Club Ardagh over the two weeks when the schools are closed during Easter Break. Arts/Crafts, Baking, Pottery Making and Basketball are this easters events. Places are limited to 20. Camps can be full days for national school aged children or mornings only for pre-schoolers. Watch these notes for more details. All enquiries to 043 6675797 or email
