School Clubs

UNCRC Article 31: Every child has the right to relax, play and join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.’

The following photographs portray a selection of our After School Clubs on offer in St. Columba's Primary School. 

🌈Two O'Clock Club🌈


Year 1 and 2 children enjoy attending our Two O'Clock Club from 2pm - 3pm each day and are supervised by Mrs Craven. The children remain within their class bubbles and enjoy a range of fun and practical activities. 

🎶 🎭 Music and Drama 🎭 🎶

2021-2022 has again been a very challenging year in regard to the restrictions which the Pandemic has imposed upon us. However, in true St. Columba's spirit each and every year group put on a Christmas show which really was worthy of a live audience. Our intention had been to limit numbers of parents/guardians to the plays /musical presentations, but unfortunately  we deemed it to be too dangerous, especially with the arrival of the Omicron variant. This did not in any way impact upon the hard work and creative endeavour the children and staff put into their performances. These can be viewed on Facebook and from the Children's section of the website. A massive credit to one and all.

🏐 Gaelic Football 🏐

In St. Columba's, our Gaelic football team represent our school in a variety of competitions annually. The 2019-2020 boys' gaelic football team are pictured below representing our school at the South Derry Cumann na mBunscol Indoor Blitz. Covid-19 has meant that we could not participate in sport thus far during this academic year but we are hopeful we will be able to compete once again soon! 


Pre Covid-19, our school Camogie teams represented St. Columba's in a number of competitions annually. Our 2019-20 Camogie team are pictured below representing our school at the South Derry Cumann na mBunscol Indoor Blitz. We are hopeful that our Camogie team will return to the pitch again soon!
