Delivery of National Flag
As part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme, the National Flag was delivered to Sandy Lane in September. We were one of the first schools in the country to receive the flag. Two people from the army came to tell us all about the National Flag. We learned a lot about the protocol attached to the flag. We also learned about the 1916 rising and we listened to and read the proclamation. We were given a copy of the proclamation for our school and will have to create our own proclamation for the 2016 Centenary Celebrations in March. We will raise the national flag on the 15th March 2016, along with every school in Ireland.
