Powerstown E.T.N.S. is looking forward to participating in the national celebration of the centenary of 1916!
Each class has been working on an aspect of Irish culture and history around 1916 and will create a display of this work in the run up to Proclamation and Flag Day. This will also compliment the events celebrating the Irish language and culture during Seachtain na Gaeilge (7th-16th March).
Here is a short presentation giving a simple and brief overview of the 1916 rising.
On March 15th we will be inviting parents and families to attend an event where we will celebrate the 1916 centenary along with Irish language culture and heritage.
8.30am – 9am – Irish Breakfast morning (Hazel Room)
– Parents are invited to an Irish breakfast morning to taste some traditional food and maybe even practise their cúpla focal!
9am – Performance (Chestnut Room)
– Each class will present a short performance including songs learned during Seachtain na Gaeilge and oral presentations on their 1916 project work.
10.20am – 11.00 (All classrooms)
– We will be opening the whole school for parents to visit classrooms and view 1916 projects created by children
The children have been working hard on this special event and are looking forward to welcoming their families into school to join in their celebration on March 15th!
