We remembered the brave men and women who fought for Ireland’s freedom in 1916 as we read the Proclamation of the past together with our school’s new Proclamation for better Ireland.
The fifth and sixth classes read the timeline of events depicting the undertakings of the 1916 Easter Rising in great detail, whilst the third and fourth classes read excerpts describing each of the signatories of the original Proclamation.
The senior classes then delighted our guests with a verse from Amhráin na bhFiann, played beautifully on the tin whistle.
Following this moving tribute, the pupils, teachers and guests gathered together outside to sing our national anthem and to raise our national flag, which was raised gracefully by Harry who was kindly assisted by Saibh and Christopher.
Following this moving and delightful centenary celebration, the pupils, teachers and guests were welcomed back into the school for some refreshments, before the celebration came to a close.
