The 3rd of December 2015 was an auspicious occasion for our whole school community and for our wider community. We were delighted to welcome Lt. Colonel Virling, Private Berrill and to our school for the presentation of the National Flag and Proclamation. Sixth class pupils provided a guard of honour to welcome the members of the Defence Forces on their arrival and on their departure. Members of the local community joined us for the ceremony and Q & A session, and afterwards for a cup of tea.

Locals recalled with interest the visit of the Defence Forces 50 years ago to the school for the 5oth Anniversary of the Easter Rising. The Proclamation presented to the school on that visit was on display at this 2015 event. Some who were pupils then were in attendance again with us on the day.

A memorable day for all.
