Tuesday, 2nd of February was a very special day for the pupils and staff in Ballycar. Our very special visitor, Sergeant Derek Dinan from Sarsfield Barracks, presented the National Flag to the pupils of the school. The children had prepared wonderful projects and artwork for the occasion. Aoife Garry showed us the medals that her great grandfather earned for his efforts during the Easter Rising. The children were taught about the National Flag and Proclamation, but the best part was possibly a Question and Answer session with Sergeant Derek. It was a very humbling and inspiring day for everyone. We will celebrate Proclamation Day in our school on 15th March, sharing our hopes and dreams for the next 100 years!
