National Flag for primary schools Initiative


On January 7th 2016, the school was delighted to welcome two members of the Irish air corps to Corpus Christi GNS.The school was presented with the National flag and with a copy of the 1916 proclamation. Two of our sixth class students, Aoife and Sorcha read from the proclamation and Nora accepted the flag on behalf of the school. We learned about the origins of the flag, its significance and how to care for it. The 15th March 2016 has been designated " Proclamation Day" for all schools in Ireland. On that day the flag will be raised in the school grounds.
