On the 24 March, Gala Retail announced its sponsorship of children’s activity camp for 2022.
With the well-being of children in mind following the pandemic and lockdown restrictions over the last two years, Starcamp with Gala Retail launched National Confidence Day and a free online show for children.
The retail group also highlighted that it recently teamed up with Starcamp to conduct a survey of more than 1,500 parents from across Ireland, to ‘assess the impact that Covid-19 and subsequent restrictions have had on Irish children of primary-school age’.
The survey results revealed that ‘confidence’ ranked above ‘academic excellence’ and ‘sporting skills’ as the top trait that respondents wish for their children, with 43% of respondents rating confidence as the most desirable trait.
