This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Many schools across Ireland are taking part in activities in preparation for this important occasion.

In our school, children from 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class are taking part in a drama called ‘Triumph of All Sorts’.

 We are all getting involved in the play and many of us have received roles. We enjoy spending time rehearsing our lines and learning how to act. There will be lots of music and dance involved in the play. Everybody will be dressing up in old fashioned clothes that were worn by the people in these times.

The teachers in our school are putting a lot of hard work into the drama to make sure that it is enjoyable for everyone. We have learned a lot about life back in 1916. We can’t wait to perform and we hope to see you all there for a great night.
