Remembering 1916

1916 Projects

Here are a small selection of the wonderful projects created by our students in the run up to the centenary of the 1916 Rising. 

Feeding the Ducks in 1916

sized 20160310 090315

All of the Senior Infant pupils worked really hard to prepare this collage of James Kearney feeding the ducks in St. Stephen's Green during the 1916 Rising. They used a mixture of newspaper, lollipop sticks, pipe cleaners, wool, sand, sequins, feathers, buttons, tissue, pompoms and paint. The pupils really enjoyed learning about the 1916 Rising in a simple way as well as helping to make a really big piece of art!

Proclamation Day

We had a wonderful ceremony for Proclamation Day. Well done to all of the pupils and teachers for all of their hard work in preparing for this once in a generation day. It was a very special moment for us as a school to see the flag being raised on this beautiful sunny day. We will upload more photographs and information as the days go by but in the meantime we want to say thank you to everyone who attended the special ceremony today.

You can get a small flavour of the day by viewing the video below.
