The Killarney Sports & Leisure Centre have launched their School Tour Programme for 2018 and are delighted to announce that it’s now open for bookings. The tours cater for all age groups with the emphasis being on fun and fitness. All activities are based on the principals of fitness and core fundamental movement skills. In 2017, they hosted a total of 25 schools throughout the summer with the largest school having 132 pupils. The smallest school had just 11 so groups of all sizes are welcome.

Your school can choose either a half day or a full day option. The half day option is available from 9.30 to 1pm and the full day option is available from 9.30am to 3pm.

The half day option (with section 1 and 2 included) is €10 per child and the full day option (with sections 1, 2 and 3 included) is €14 per child.

The day is split into 3 sections:

Section 1

Ice Breakers & Invasion Games

During the early morning slot, the instructors build a rapport with the students to set the tone for the day. This is best achieved by fun icebreakers and inclusion games such as soccer, football, basketball, dodge ball and much more. Finally they finish off the morning slot with some parachute games and fun on the bouncy castles and brand new target game.

Section 2

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 3

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 students to solve themselves. To finish the day there’s an obstacle course and relay race designed on the principals of fitness.

If you have any other questions relating to the package, times or dates please don’t hesitate to contact Dan on 064 6636554 or alternatively you can email him at  dan.odonoghue@killarneyleisure.com.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In our latest online poll we asked our readers if they had reduced their social contacts over the course of the last week.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
