We Celebrate Proclamation Day -
This was a very important day for our school and every school in the country.
Guidelines given to the schools as to how to celebrate:
"The major highlights of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme include the day being marked across the education sector with the raising of the Tricolour, the reading of the 1916 Proclamation by a student, past pupil or special guest, followed by a reading of the school's own Proclamation for a new generation. Students will then showcase their own contribution to the day, whether in the form of music, theatre, poetry, art or other displays."
Check out our slideshow to see how we celebrated Proclamation Day. Also, read the school's own Proclamation which you can see under the slideshow.
It was a fantastic day for everyone and we have a good understanding of the importance of 1916 events in our Irish history.
