Kids have a ball at schools soc­cer camp!

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

MAK­ING the most of their mid-term break, lo­cal kids had a ball as they took part in the Schools Soc­cer Coach­ing Scheme Hal­loween Camp. Al­ways a hit with the young­sters, given the time of year this camp fo­cused on some spooky Hal­loween ac­tiv­i­ties.

Over 30 chil­dren were in at­ten­dance over the four days at the Gaelscoil in Drum­goold and were kept busy with plenty of sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties along with pump­kin carv­ing and a fancy dress day for Hal­loween.

The group also made the jour­ney to Black­wa­ter Open Farm for a spe­cial day out that was the high­light for many of the lit­tle ones as they got some hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence with the an­i­mals kept there and en­joyed the mas­sive out­door play area.

Or­gan­iser of the camp, Cllr John O’Rourke wished to thank Judy Heffernan and the Board of Man­age­ment at the Gaelscoil for the use of their ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties over the course of the four days, along with all of the vol­un­teers who came along to coach, take part and su­per­vise the mad­ness.

Spe­cial thanks were also re­served for Ger Mackey and Wex­ford County Coun­cil for their con­tin­ued sup­port of what is a com­pletely vol­un­tary scheme. The camps con­tinue to go from strength to strength with more planned for 2018. Peo­ple are asked to keep an eye out and to con­tact Cllr O’Rourke for de­tails of up­com­ing camps.
