ANNUAL kayaking week was celebrated in Scoil Chríost Rí with students making a splash in the River Fergus.

Since the formation of Kayak Le Chéile at the Cloughleigh based Scoil Chríost Rí in 2020, the school has continued to utilise the majestic River Fergus on its door step.

As part of kayaking well, students from third class got the opportunity to kayak up the River Fergus. Water safety classes have been taught in tandem with kayaking and this year, stand up paddleboarding was added to the mix.

Tutors for the four day event were supplied by Burren Adventure with the school currently planning a regatta for June 11th.

In May 2022, Kayak Le Chéile received a boost with the addition of a new kayaking shed. Assistance from Clare Sports Partnership and the Dorman Accounts Fund enabled the club to acquire ten single kayaks and two double kayaks plus all necessary safety gear.

Kayak4Dads and Kayak4Mums programmes were also held in partnership with the school and Clare Sports Partnership.
