In his most pressing interview to date, when questioned by 9 year old Dean Aherne about the abolition of homework, Micheál Martin stated that for the first time ever, “On April 12th there’ll be no homework, and that’s for the whole country.”
On the anniversary of school closures, Starcamp are on a mission to keep children’s spirits uplifted as the pandemic continues. And as part of their 2 hour ‘St Patrick’s Day Show’ which they are rolling out for free to all children in Ireland, An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, chatted to Starcamp kids and gave them a very important message to share with the country about overcoming shyness and the importance of confidence.
He also told them that “it’s kinda cool” having a personal driver, that “he’d like Cork actor, Cillian Murphy to play him in a movie” and that his hidden talent is “mimicking people, I can take people off but in politics they don’t allow me to do that anymore”. Watch out Mario Rosenstock.
Starcamp with Gala retail are offering this free “St Patrick’s Day Show” which will be available to view from Saturday morning at 9am until the 18th March. It is oozing with positivity, smiles, uplifting messages, distraction, creativity and a feel good factor that children desperately need in their lives at this time.
They have committed to creating something special for the sake of children, to aid their ailing spirits in what continues to be a challenging and confusing time for them as they return to the classroom.
Starcamp, who are known for providing the children of Ireland with performance and fun based summer camps, in January brought a whirlwind of positivity, laughter and much needed relief and escapism to over 250,000 children when they offered an online camp to the nation for free gaining favourable recognition from child psychologists, GP’s, principals and teachers.
The action packed line up for the event includes The Story of St Patrick, music, games, baking, Irish dance with Riverdance performers, The Gardiner Brothers, Don Conroy will teach how to draw leprechauns, Joe the Magician and so much more.
With children due to lose out again with the cancellation of parades, Starcamp want to encourage children all over Ireland to get creative and imaginative over the next week or so, and in association with Gala retail are offering a whole host of prizes for BEST PERFORMANCE, BEST ART, BEST PARADE, BEST BAKING & BEST COSTUME.
All entries must have a St Patrick’s Day (or Irish) theme.
