It won't be long until the school summer holidays come along and Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre have just the activities for the little ones.

They have just launched their School Tour Programme for May/June this year and are delighted to announce it is now open for bookings.

"Our aim is to cater for all age groups with the emphasis being on fun and fitness," Daniel O'Donoghue, from Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre, said.

"All our activities are based on the principles of fitness and core fundamental movement skills. In 2019 we catered for a total of 35 schools throughout the summer with our largest school having 110 pupils."

Schools can choose either a half day or a full day option, he explained.

The Half Day Option is available from 9.30-1pm, for €13 per child.

The Full Day Option is available from 9.30am to 3pm and is €16 per child.

The day is split into three sections however we can adjust to suit your own needs:

Section one is Ice Breakers and Invasion Games.

During the early morning slot the instructors build a rapport with the pupils to set the tone for the day. This is best achieved by fun icebreakers. Invasion games such as soccer, football, basketball, dodge ball and much more.

"Finally we finish off the morning slot with some parachute games and fun on our bouncy castles and brand new target game.

Section two is the Pool Inflatable.
"The second part of the day is spent in the pool on our 20m obstacle inflatable course. This is hugely popular and great fun."

Section three is all about Team Building.

"Finally after some lunch it’s off to do some Team Building and obstacle courses in the Sports Hall. Here the instructors will take a more passive role and set tasks for the pupils to solve themselves. To finish the day we have an obstacle course and relay race designed on the principles of fitness."

Start and finish times can be accommodated to suit your travel requirements. The activities can also be accommodated to suit your pupil’s needs.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
