The application period for the activities is in the spring. First-graders and pupils requiring special-needs support are given priority in the allocation of places.

After-school activities provide the child with meaningful activities after the school day in a safe environment, at school or near the school. The activities include playing and spending time with peers, daily outdoor activities and exercise, as well as small excursions to the surrounding area.
