On Tuesday 24th November 2015, our school was visited by members of our Defence Forces. A guard of honour welcomed them into our school. Students were presented with our National Flag and a copy of The Irish Proclamation. A section of the proclamation was read by students after which the Soldiers were treated to our National Anthem played by students on traditional tin whistles. The students were given opportunities to ask questions about our defence forces and the soldiers explained the medals they were awarded. The entire school then stood and gave a very patriotic rendition of our National Anthem as junior infants waved Irish flags which they had made earlier.
On March 15th 2016, to celebrate the 1916 rising, primary schools nationwide will simultaneously raise the National Flag.
