Open Spectrum is about to enter a new phase, incorporating as a company as agreed at our AGM! After we achieve this we will register as a charity – so stay with us for the ride. We have also just implemented a facility to pay for activities on this site but you must register your child/teen on this site to do so. This is so that we can keep our activities safe and restricted to our OS kids unless stated otherwise. Payments for activities can be made under Events.


Our most recent fund-raising Tea Party at Helen Norris’s house in Clonskeagh netted over E2000 in funds from extremely generous members and donors and was great fun too!  Our activities do cost a lot of money – nearly always well more than we collect from participants so anyone who has a good fund-raising idea, get in touch!  We would also like to acknowledge funding from Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown Co. Council, Dublin City Council and regular sponsorship events run by Jumpzone, Sandyford.
