Well done to our pupils who were highly commended for their poster on 1916 at the recent Joyce Brothers Festival in Kilmallock.
As part of our final WOW walk this year, a tree planting ceremony took place to mark the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The young oak tree which was planted had grown from an acorn which was found nearby on a nature walk in the autumn of 2015.
A big thanks to Pat Barry for facilitating the planting of the tree. We look forward to watching its growth on future WOW walks!
An exhibition of Easter 1916 themed projects and art pieces went on display in the community hall over the June Bank holiday weekend. The children had been working on these projects for a good number of weeks and the exhibition offered an opportunity for the local public to see their work. Some of the work exhibited included profiles of individuals who took part in the Rising, a portrait gallery called ‘Faces of the Rising’ and interpretive paintings and drawings of the events. A replica of the 1916 Proclamation was also on display alongside the children’s own Proclamation for 2016.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to view the exhibition!
