Sergeant Larry Havens and Trooper Jessica Slevin from the Irish army visited our school today and presented us with the tricolour. We were joined by representatives of the Board of Management and Parents Association together with parents and members of the wider community. Sergeant Havens, assisted by Indie and Maya Nair read the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Trooper Slevin explained to the students how to care for the tricolour before presenting it to Cian Canavan Quigley who accepted it on behalf of the school. Everybody sang Amhrán na bhFiann. We look forward to raising our tricolour on 15th of March 2016 together with schools from all over Ireland, to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising. Sergeant Havens and Trooper Slevin patiently answered lots of questions from very curious children before they left.
