We held an assembly where children from different classes read out the original 1916 Proclamation, followed by our own 2016 Proclamation (see below). The Tricolour was raised and the National Anthem was sung accompanied by music from Ms. Gallagher and Mr. Mahon.
We’d like to thank all involved in helping us create such a moving commemorative ceremony, especially Ms Ní Chonaráin and Ms. McCormack. A big thanks also to Ms Fay’s sixth class who drew and painted fantastic pictures of Patrick Pearse, Thomas Mac Donagh, Joseph Plunkett, Thomas Clarke, Seán Mac Diarmada, Eamann Ceannt and James Connolly which are current on display on the front windows of the school.

Men, women and children of Ireland we call on you to respect each and every person in Ireland regardless of their gender, age, race, abilities or beliefs. Everyone should be treated equally and not judged by their colour or religion. We promote mutual respect and friendship between members of all religions.
We welcome all cultures while preserving our own. Déanaimid iarracht gaeilge a cur chun cinn go nádúrtha. We will keep our Irish traditions while also exploring and welcoming others. We respect one another as well as our history. We are proud of our past and look forward to building a new future in harmony together.
Every person deserves a home, shelter, food and access to good health care. We are determined that our community continues to be caring, kind and generous to those that are struggling for basic human needs.
Every child deserves the right to free education and the right to learn. Education should cater for every child’s individual needs to fulfill each child’s potential.
Our vision is for peace at home and abroad. We wish for all conflicts to stop and that our dream, a dream of peace and protection comes true.
We promise that our community will preserve our environment, our beautiful green land, for future generations.
We believe that young people’s voices should be heard as they are the future generations.
