Our school had a visit from two members of the Irish Defence Forces. They presented WETNS with an Irish Flag and told us about the flag and the 1916 Easter Rising. The flag will be raised next year as part of the centenary commemoration of the 1916 Rising. Every school in Ireland will raise the flag on March 3rd 2016. Some children read an extract from the Proclamation of Independence, which was first read by Padraig Pearse in Dublin in 1916.
