A ‘1916 Meet and Greet’ took place today Wednesday between 9.10 and 12.30 in the hall.  A group of children, teachers and relatives gathered in the hall to display, discuss and introduce their ‘1916 connections’.   Some of the younger kids had an adult relative with them as support .  It was an amazing opportunity to learn about the many different ways in which the Rising and its aftermath were experienced. Many of the contributors were from the younger classes in our school and they all spoke so proudly about their connections to the 1916 rising.

Each class in the school got an opportunity to meet and question the displays and information on the people involved in 1916. It was a fascinating day and a very proud one in our school.    IMG_6194 (1)
