Last week, our school received two new flags. First, we got the Irish National Flag from the Army. The sergeants told us a little bit about what happened in 1916 and we were allowed to ask them questions. The Mayor of Galway, Frank Fahy came to visit for the ceremony. Niamh read out a paragraph from the proclamation and we sang the national anthem; Amhrán na bhFiann. We also received the HSE's Healthy Schools flag. We are the first school in Galway to get this flag! Our health promotion officers were Sian and Tess.
