On Friday October 9th we all assembled in the Halla to learn about our Irish Flag and our Proclamation. This was the first of the ceremonies planned this school year to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising. Sergeant Mike Grufferty and Private Robert O Flahartha told us the history of the Flag and read the Proclamation for us. Ella from 6th read the fourth paragraph.They then presented the flag to Sean, 6th class and the Proclamation to Caoimhe, 6th class. Later in the year we will have a special flag raising ceremony. Sergeant Mike Grufferty is originally from Midfield and he is Oisin’s uncle.
