On the 15th of March, our school held our national flag raising ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the 1916 rising. The tricolour was raised by Mr Eugene O’Gorman – the Chairperson of the school’s Board of Management – at 12.04pm. Two students from sixth class read aloud the original proclamation followed by our school’s new proclamation for their generation. This was written by Rang a Sé and expresses their hopes and dreams for Ireland’s future. The ceremony then concluded with a rousing rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann.
