Gort NS celebrated Proclamation Day on March 16th. It was a beautiful sunny day and the children gathered in the playground to read their own Proclamation which Ava read so beautifully for us. We then had a lovely rendition of tunes on the tinwhistle and afterwards Leah raised the Irish flag which flew proudly in the sun. The children’s projects about the 1916 Rising were all on display in the hall and parents were able to see all the hard work that has been going on. It was fantastic to see so many parents in the school and we all enjoyed a cup of tea afterwards.
