Proclamation Day - March 15th 2016.
The Government declared Tuesday March 15th as Proclamation Day, the centrepiece of celebrations of 1916 for schools. We received our flag from the Defence Forces in September 2015 & we raised it on Tuesday March 15th 2016.
This was a solemn & respectful occasion for our school community, in remembrance of the events of Easter 1916. The children of the Proclamation committee of Scoil Íde have written a 2016 proclamation, which was read for the first time after the flag was raised. To coincide with the celebrations each class performed songs, poems and musical displays for parents. 5th class performed a play which depicted the events from 1916.

Annual School Walk.
We all set off on our annual walk on Monday 12th October. 1st to 6th class walked to Corkagh Park and took in the beautiful views. We even had time to stop in the playground on our way back. The infants trekked down around the convent.

On Wednesday 30th of September Scoil Íde welcomed two members of the Irish Defence Forces who presented our school with an Irish Flag, a booklet on how to care for the flag, a poster of Amhrán na bhFiann, the national anthem and a poster of the history of Óglaigh na hEireann.
The presentation included a history of the national flag and the correct protocol for its use.
The Defence Forces member also read part of the Proclamation assisted by Mia in 6th class. The flag was then presented to our Principal and our two youngest members of our school community.
Our flag will be raised on Proclamation Day March 15th 2016.
The pupils and staff of Scoil Íde were all delighted to welcome the Sam Maguire to the school last week accompanied by James McCarty and members of Round Towers GAA club.
