Today, the 13th of October, two members of the Defence Forces came to our school to present us with the 1916 Procolamation and our National Flag.

Ms. Mc Nulty welcomed the members of the Defence Forces to our school and then Samantha-Rose played a traditional tune on the harp before Sarah welcomed them in our national language.

Sergeant Ciaran Crawford then told us about the National Flag and asked us some questions about how we should keep it. Then he, with Caitlin, read us the 1916 Procolamation. Afterwards Sergreant Crawford and his colleague presented Caitlin with a copy of the 1916 Procolamation.

Then our Principal,Mr. Keating was presented with Our National Flag. Sergeant Crawford answered questions asked by some students. Today was an incredible experience and we will remember it for years to come.
