Army personnel presented the school with a handmade Tricolour and explained the significance of the historic Proclamation during a special ceremony in the school hall where the whole school was in attendance.
One of our 6th class students read the fourth paragraph of the Proclamation alongside the officiating officer and everybody stood to attention and sang 'Mo Ghile Mear' and 'Amhrán na bhFiann' accompanied by piano, snare drum, glockenspiel, flutes, tin whistles, violins, guitars, clarineos and recorders.
It was a historic moment for the school and no doubt will be talked about by the children for years to come.
