Today, Tuesday 15th March 2016, is Proclamation Day. This is the day when every school in the country is invited to hoist the National Flag and share the results of their "Proclamation for a New Generation", and all other creative projects relating to 1916 that the student body have developed. Using the 1916 Proclamation as a foundation, primary and post-primary schools were invited to write a new Proclamation for 2016, to reflect the values, ideals and aspirations of the generation of 2016.
We decided to combine the celebration of Proclamation Day with our Maidin Gaeilge and our annual Ceoilchoirm, when all of our classes perform songs/music, drama and dancing. As part of our celebrations, some of our 6th Class pupils read Our Proclamation for 2016 and our school band played while we all sang the National Anthem. Then six boys and girls from 6th Class carried the Flag to our flagpole and with a little help from Mr Carney, they proudly hoisted the flag.
