Every school in Ireland is getting an Irish flag as part of the 2016 Centenary Programme. On Tuesday December 8th we were presented with the Irish flag and the 1916 proclamation by three members of the defence forces, Sergeant Wayne Fitzgerald, Sergeant Eddie Madden and Corporal Morgan James. The flag was presented to the youngest boy in the school while the Irish Proclamation was presented to the oldest girl. It was a special and memorable ceremony. Ms. Alani and the senior classes sang Amhrán na bhFiann. Great credit is due to the school band and all other classes who played an important part in the ceremony.
