CASPA After School Care Programme

The Loburn CASPA Programme is a safe, fun and caring environment for the children and families of the Loburn, North Loburn and Ashley areas. Those students attending CASPA will be supported and encouraged to participate and enjoy their time together through a variety of inside and outside activities.
