Last Tuesday, March 15th, in every school across the country, students are celebrating Proclamation Day as part of the celebrations of the centenary of 1916. In St Peter’s, we had a very special ceremony, where every class was involved, finishing with the raising of the Irish flag that was presented late last year by the members of the Defence Forces.

This was to mark the Centennium of the 1916 Rising next year! We learned how to take care of the Irish flag and we also got the opportunity to ask the Defence Force questions about the 1916 Rising.

As a school, we then came together and sang Amhrán na bhFiann. It...
