The Department of Education and Skills has designated Tuesday, March 15th 2016 as “Proclamation Day”. As part of the Ireland 2016 Commemoration Programme all schools have been asked to commemorate and reflect upon the events of 100 years ago. We, at St. Colman’s will mark “Proclamation Day” with a short ceremony at 11:20am on Tuesday. We hope that the weather will be kind to us and that we will be able to hold our ceremony in the school yard. The ceremony will include the Raising of out National Flag and a Reading of the 1916 Proclamation.
