At Booterstown National School, we provide after- school ECA for all classes in the school. In 2019, the PTA outsourced the running of Extra Curricular Activities to Southside Playball.
Southside Playball is a sport and exercise-based company with over 14 years of experience providing fun, exercise, sports and movement to over 12 schools and 1,000 children in south Dublin every year. This is run by Ian Dumbleton, who is an ex
pupil of BNS. All the classes are taught in a fun-filled, energetic and positive way and children from all over the world have enjoyed Playball. Further information can be found here https://www.southsideplayball.com/
The PTA continuously input to the choice of classes on offer and can make some suggestions for changes or new classes as required.
Choice of Classes
Classes on offer include sports classes such as multi-sport, playball, basketball, football, rounders and indoor tennis. In addition, Art, Lego/games and Cake Craft classes are also available if there is sufficient demand. All classes are held in the
Parish Hall or the school grounds.
During the summer term, we also arrange a 6 week Introduction to Sailing course on Friday afternoons at the INSS in Dun Laoghaire. A 6 week tennis course is also available on Friday evenings in Carraig Tennis Club in Blackrock.
