Learning about 1916 in Room 1

The boys and girls in Room 1 created these beautiful posters after learning about what life was like in Ireland 100 years ago. We discovered lots of

interesting facts about the Irish flag also. Did you know Thomas Francis Meagher was the first man to fly the Irish flag in Waterford in 

1848!

Raising the Irish flag in St. Louis

On the 15th of March 2016, St. Louis SPS and St. Louis Infant School took part in a special ceremony to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Easter Rising that happened in 1916.

Both schools were presented with a tri-colour Irish flag by some soldiers from Cathal Brugha barracks last year and we raised them together at 12 o’ clock.

Cian and Kate from 6th class read the proclamation to the pupils and everybody sung the national anthem Amhrán na bhFiann together with the help of the St. Louis SPS choir.

It was a great ceremony.
