We are now offering our Techkidz programme in Primary Schools throughout Munster. The programme can be tailored to meet the particular requirements of your school. Typically we offer the programme over one term, for 1 – 2 hours per class each week. It is offered during school hours and is suitable for children from first class up. It can be offered over a number of school years to the same children giving them a fantastic opportunity to significantly build up their skills and learning.
We also offer taster courses and one day workshops.
We have been teaching computers to children and teenagers for over 25 years. Our courses are fun and engaging and cover all the basics as well as advanced skills. We love to teach coding but our courses and Summer Camps are about much more. We really want to encourage our children to study and work in IT and to see the huge opportunities that are there for them.
Mercy Hospital Kids & Teens Appeal
This year Techkidz have chosen the Mercy Hospital kids & Teens appeal as our Charity partner. We will donate €5 from every booking to the Mercy Kids & teens appeal.
It is vital that when a child is ill, that they and their parents and siblings have access to the best care, facilities and support. Funds you donate will be invested in critical areas of our paediatric services. The Mercy has a 28-bed paediatrics ward that caters for both medical and surgical care, and we constantly strive to ensure that every child has a comfortable stay at The Mercy.
The children’s ward and Leukaemia unit continue to provide treatment and care to our smallest patients and we will continue to provide the support they deserve.
The Kids and Teens Appeal is investing in critical areas of our paediatric services including:
A Child-Friendly Ward
This year we are focused on finding new ways to make the Children’s Ward and Leukaemia Unit as Child-Friendly as possible. We need to raise in excess of €10,000 to decorate patients’ rooms, corridors, treatment rooms and the playroom with colourful and engaging wall art and murals to create in an effort to reduce their fears and anxieties.
Our mobile cancer nurse service for kids – POONS
This crucial service allows children who are suffering from cancer to be treated in their own homes. The service covers a large geographical area from Youghal to Bantry and Mitchelstown to Kinsale, as well as surrounding counties so that all children have access to this service regardless of their location.
“Being able to deliver a home-based option to these children enhances their quality of life and allows for some normalisation of family life during cancer treatment. It also means there is a reduction in hospital admissions and promotes early discharge from the Hospital. We are also able to provide ongoing training and development for the team of Clinical Nurse Specialists so that they can provide expert care to the children through informed research and up to date knowledge.”
