Staff and students of Piper’s Hill College celebrate 1916

Three students, Cory Pearse, Marrissa Honeyman and Stephen Smyth attended a ceremony at Croke Park on Monday March 7 which represented the culmination of Ireland’s Flags for Schools programme.  They were accompanied by their teacher Ms Keeley. Some 6,000 students and teachers representing schools throughout Ireland attended the event.    President Michael D Higgins addressed the audience and spoke about the part young people have to play in shaping the future of Ireland. Each school was presented with a flag and a copy of the Proclamation. RTE broadcaster Ryan Tubridy was MC for the event and the audience were treated to traditional Irish music by the group Seo Linn.

Proclamation Day at Piper’s Hill College

On Tuesday March 15, Proclamation Day the college laid on a number of events to mark the occasion. The day started with an extended morning registration for all classes in which students were given a presentation on the events of Easter week 1916. An Irish History Quiz was enjoyed by all students before lunch break followed by traditional Irish music in the school foyer.

The highlight of the day’s celebration occurred in the afternoon with the flag raising ceremony which was attended by members of the defence forces, representatives from each class group and staff members.

Traditional Irish dancing was performed by students followed by poetry readings and recitations. Mr O’ Connor then presented the Irish flag to the Lieutenant Brian Lane who assisted by students Cory Pearse and Arran Fennessey raised the flag to full mast. Leaving Cert students Stephen Smyth and Aimee Darias O’Hara then recited their own compositions for the audience. This was followed by Irish songs and music from different class groups. The afternoon was concluded by an address from Mr O’Connor. Well done to the organisers of this very successful day.
