As part of our preparation for proclamation day we learned about the Easter Rising and the events that surrounded it. We also read the proclamation which Padraig Pearse read outside the G.P.O. on Sackville Street (O'Connell Street) in 1916. The class explored and gained an understanding of the vision that the 1916 signatories had. They wanted to create a fairer more equal Ireland. The class then created their own proclamation for a better Ireland in 2016 . The classes' ideas and suggestions were really inspirational. The class created a vision for Ireland that helps the homeless and those who are ill. Well done class!
The children participated in the annual Céilí today. The class got dressed up in patriotic green white and orange. The class really had a great time and made a great effort with the dances. Well done to Ciara and Holly on their outstanding individual interval performances.
