On Tuesday, 15th of March Holmpatrick NS celebrated Proclamation Day alongside all schools across Ireland. This was a very special day as we embraced our Irish culture, history and heritage. We celebrated and remembered the 1916 rebellion in school by holding a special assembly.
As part of Proclamation Day, pupils in 5th and 6th wrote a new school proclamation for 2016.
Before we rose the tricolour we sang Amhrán na bhFiann which was played beautifully on guitar and tinwhistle by girls from 4th and 6th class.
