After-school activities

Application period for after-school activities is 22 March–23 April 2021.

Please note! All applicants who applied for a place in the basic education after-school activities within the application period have been granted a place.

Unfortunately, a large number of applications arrived after the application period, and therefore, we were not able to offer all applicants a place. The applications received after the application period will be kept on file, and we will be in touch if we can arrange a place for the child.

New applications can be submitted according to the instruction below.

You can also register for the Playground activities for schoolchildren.


Basic education after-school activities are organised for first grades and second graders, and for special needs pupils from 3rd to 9th grade at schools, playgrounds or at other suitable locations near the schools. Activities are organised by the city, associations, parishes and private service providers. Children in after-school activities get a snack and they are insured.
