A whole host of our activities are based in primary schools around Dublin. During these clubs, we seek to engage and encourage the children in activities tailored for both curricular and extracurricular pursuits. We run 4 different activities across 4 different schools. We run sports clubs, creative clubs, drama clubs and educational clubs. The aim of each activity is to facilitate the growth of children both in ability and confidence.

Our school leaders are: Alex for St. Enda’s, Ella for Scoil Treasa, Emma for St. James’, & Tessa for Warrenmount- send an email to schools@trinityvdp.com if you’d like to help out with our school activities!

homework club

This activity give the kids an opportunity to sit down and focus on their school work, which for many reasons may be difficult for them to achieve at home. The work you do may be as simple as quizzing their times-tables or testing their spelling, but the individual attention and encouragement you offer is invaluable.

Creative Club

Creative club gives primary school kids a chance to get inventive and let their imagination run wild. They have a different craft planned every week, including some seasonal favourites (Halloween decorations, letters to Santa and Valentines cards to name a few), it's easily one of the most creative activities on offer.

Drama Club

If you're enthusiastic, energetic, or think you can make kids smile with your acting abilities (or lack thereof), then the Drama Club is the way to go! Drama Club is an opportunity for kids and volunteers alike to let loose and improve self-confidence, playing games, singing songs, and having fun.

Sports Club

Now is your chance to relive your glory days of fun and games in the school playground. This is a perfect way to just have a bit of fun and get moving. Exactly what it says on the tin, sport club involves organising and partaking in the classic games that we all know and love. All while encouraging the benefits of a bit of exercise as part of your day.

 

Accessibility Notice: For each of our school activities, volunteers meet at Trinity's front arch and head from there, either by walking or by bus using a VDP leap card- accessibility varies from school to school as detailed below. Regarding the actual activities in the schools, despite the activity and energy of the young kids there's always room for volunteers who mightn't be so able for extensive physical activity, even with sports club.

St. Enda's: this school is about 10 mins walk away and is serviced by the 83a, 9, and 122 buses from College Green. There is an outdoor yard area with no mobility obstructions, however there is a step up to the classroom area. The classroom area is quite small so wheelchair users may experience maneuverability issues. We're not sure if there's an accessible bathroom but this info will be updated in the coming weeks.

Scoil Treasa: this school is about 25 mins walk away and is served by the 150 bus from College Green. There is an outdoor yard area with no mobility obstructions and the classroom area is fully accessible. There are multiple classrooms we use, and all are of ample size to where there wouldn't be any maneuverability issues for wheelchair users, particularly the very large main classroom. We're not sure if there's an accessible bathroom but this info will be updated in the coming weeks.

St. James': this school is about 30 mins walk away so volunteers would always get either the 40 bus or the 13 bus from College Green, which stops about 5 mins walk from the school. There is a step up to the main building entrance, however we believe there may be a ramp entrance at the back of the building and will confirm that in the coming weeks, as well as finding out if the school has an accessible bathroom. We use an indoor sports hall instead of an outdoor yard area which may provide more accessiblity, however the classroom area may be a bit tight for wheelchair users, though not as tight as St. Enda's.

Warrenmount: this school is about 20 mins walk away and is served by the 49 and 77a buses from College Green. We'll have confirmed info in the coming weeks, but we believe there's steps into the classroom area and no accessible bathroom. The classroom area is quite spacious so if there is a ramp entrance elsewhere in the building, wheelchair users shouldn't experience any maneuverability difficulties. There is a large outdoor yard area with all-weather surface, however we believe there may be steps leading up to it- again, we'll update this info in the near future with accurate details.
