The Breakfast Club was set up in conjunction with Our Lady of Mercy Primary School in October 2013. Up to 35 children attend every morning and receive a healthy, filling breakfast which includes Cereals, Toast and Juices. It also gives the girls a chance to socialise and listen to music in the morning before school.
The After School Homework Club was set up in consultation with the School Completion Programme and the Our Lady of Mercy School for young people aged 8 - 12 in order to support the with their homework.
The homework club is facilitated by a teacher from the Mercy School and two staff / volunteers from Children's Group Link. The After School Programme takes place during the school term, Monday to Thursday from 2:30pm - 4:30pm where a group of up to twelve young people receive assistance with their homework and engage in different games and recreational activities. The Recreational alternatives provided by our organisation encourage learning and helps young people develop their team skills, self - discipline and communication skills
