St.Mary's will commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Rising to celebrate 100 years since the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. There are a number of activities taking place to mark this special occasion.
- Raising of the Irish Flag (March 15th).
- Visit to the IFI Cinema to watch 1916 themed documentaries
- Tour of the 'Proclaiming A Republic' exhibition in Collins Barracks Museum.
- Visit to the '1916 Rising' photographic exhibition at the National Archive Photographic Gallery Temple Bar.
Each department will work with their classes to produce projects relating to the 1916 theme for e.g. History, Art, Geography and Religion. A lot of cross curricular work will be created. Well done to all the teachers and students for getting involved in this once in a lifetime occasion.
