1916 Flag Ceremony

1916 Flag Ceremony

Last Thursday the 11th of February the boys and girls experienced a little piece of history. Three members of the Irish Naval Service & Army Service came to the school to present us with our national flag and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation. We all wore green, white and orange to mark this special occasion.

They explained to us that they had come to present the flag, and that it was a part of the government’s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of 1916, and that next year every school in Ireland will raise the flag on March 15th. This day will be known as Proclamation Day.

The proclamation was then read aloud by Kara from the Naval Service and Kaitlyn Ahern from 5th class.

The flag & a copy of the proclamation was then presented to the oldest and youngest pupils in our school – Jack O’ Leary (6th class) and Sarah Laffan (Junior Infants).

The ceremony finished with everybody standing and singing our national anthem, “Amhrán na bhFiann”.

Here are some pictures of the ceremony!

We LOVE Pancake Tuesday because…


It’s the only day you don’t have to feel guilty for stuffing your face with pancakes!

We topped ours with maple syrup, lemon juice, sugar, nutella, strawberries and sprinkles… yummy! 🙂
