Taoiseach Micheál Martin has declared during his most pressing interview to date that there will be no homework for students across the country on April 12.
Starcamp, which is known for providing the children of Ireland with performance and fun-based summer camps, is on a mission to keep children’s spirits uplifted through lockdown, and on what was the anniversary of school closures in the first lockdown, kids had the opportunity to interview the Taoiseach.
As part of Starcamp’s St Patrick’s Day Show, which will be rolled out for free to all children in Ireland, Mr Martin gave kids a very important message to share with the country about overcoming shyness and the importance of confidence.
He 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,” he told them.
The action-packed show includes music, games, baking, magic with Joe the Magician, Irish dance with Riverdance performers The Gardiner Brothers, and leprechaun drawing with Don Conroy.
A host of prizes for best performance, best art, best parade, best baking, and best costume will also be awarded.
