We had a special ceremony in our school today during which Sergeant Dave McCarney, Irish Defence Forces, presented to us our National Flag as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme. A copy of the 1916 Proclamation was also given to the school.
He spoke to the pupils about how the flag should be cared for and the protocol that surrounds this vibrant symbol of our nation. Pupils were then given the chance to ask questions and the ceremony concluded with the pupils singing National Anthem song, Amhrán na bhFiann.
​We look forward to learning a lot more about 1916 in the centenary year. All schools will raise their flag next 15th March 2016.
