Flags for School Initiatiave 2015/2016

Today was a very proud one for us all here at S.S Peter and Paul J.N.S. as we celebrated the arrival of two members from the Defence Force. Julia Grattan, Lorcan Roche and Sam Jackson were presented with the Irish flag and a copy of the 1916 Proclamation on behalf of the school.
Julia's 5 minute notice to read a section of the Proclamation along with Lieutenant Martin McMahon and Corporal  Brian Geraghty did not phase her one bit and she left us all in awe of her talent and poise.
We were entertained with some lively Irish dancing from Iveta Balakanskaite and Robert Downes which got our feet tapping and hands clapping.
Ms Ní Mhaonaigh's 2nd class stood proud and tall as their voices swelled with the tune of Amhrán na bhFiann.
Julia, Lorcan and Sam further showed what they are made of when they each read a short piece to us.
To each and every child in our school-well done and thank you for our wonderful behaviour and attention. It was wonderful having our whole school together, along with parents, members of the Board of Management and Lieutenant Martin McMahon and Corporal Brian Geraghty to celebrate today.
