7th December, 2015.
We had a lovely ceremony in the school on Friday to commemorate the Easter Rising in 1916. The beautiful singing and the tunes played on the tin whistle greatly enhanced the ceremony. I would like to thank all the teachers for preparing the children so well and for making it such a memorable occasion. A special thanks to Laura O’Keane who helped with the preparation of songs for the ceremony and to Peter Lynch for taking photographs on the day. Peter’s photographs will be on the school website in the next week or so. I would like to thank the Parents’ Association for preparing the tea and coffee afterwards and it was really appreciated by everyone in attendance. Of course the biggest thanks goes to the children. I was extremely proud of their efforts. Their attentiveness and respectfulness during the ceremony was exemplary.
