All of our after school classes are taught by Garda vetted tutors who have experience with and a natural love of teaching children. We will capture kids’ imaginations with our interactive activities. They’ll role play, work with models, develop skills, draw, think creatively … and most importantly, they’ll learn!
Here is an example of one of our six week workshops:
Class 1: First Aid
Children will learn how to respond when first aid is needed and be able to identify items needed in a first aid kit.
Class 2: The Wonderful Brain
Children will learn about the brain and how it works. They will also build a model of the brain.
Class 3: That's Gas
Children will gain an understanding of what gas is and why we burp and belch.
Class 4: Your Spine is Fine
Children will be able to explain what the spine does and identify the different sections of the spine.
Class 5: Pharmacy
Children will be able to explain what a prescription is and what information it must contain. They will gain an understanding of how pharmacists dispense prescriptions.
Class 6: Medical Fun and Graduation
