Covid We request that all students participating in the course take an antigen test the evening before the course starts. If it is positive they should not attend camp.

Regardless of the antigen test result, if a child is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 they should not attend camp. Any child who develops symptoms during the camp will be sent home. Any child absent from camp with COVID symptoms must stay at home until 48 hours after their symptoms finish.

We hope the students enjoy their time in Ballinskelligs, we very much look forward to their start at Coláiste na Sceilge.
