15th March 2016 Portlaoise College will commemorate the 1916 Rising.
First Year students are to dress in “costumes” that day; clothes that would have been worn in that era.
Proclamation Day: Trip to Croke Park
This was a special occasion for many secondary schools as the Thomas F. Meagher foundation presented flags and commemorative booklets. To be addressed by the President Michael D. Higgins made the occasion even more significant. 5th Year student Kayleigh O’Connor collected the flag and booklet for our school.
Our TY students Portlaoise college designed this artwork with Ms. O’Grady. It contains all the names of those who died in 1916″ #rang1916 #edchatie
