Welcome to all our pupils for the 2017-18 school year. An extra special welcome to all our new pupils, parents and teachers. We are happy to have you in our school community.
This proclamation was written by some of our wonderful pupils in 2016. It is a powerful message that we try to honour every day.
PROBLACHT NA H EIREANN
CENTRAL MODEL INFANTS’ SCHOOL
PEOPLE OF IRELAND
We, the children of Central Model Infants’ School would like to share our wishes for Ireland as we remember the Easter Rising of 1916. We believe that in the Ireland of 2016, education is important for everyone and will give people the chance to get a job and have a greater quality of life.
We believe that everyone should have a warm safe home and access to fresh, healthy food.
We believe that everyone should have suitable clothes for our changeable weather, and the opportunity to get medical help if they need it.
We believe in an honest Ireland, an Ireland that respects everyone and treats each person equally and fairly.
We want Ireland to be like our school, where we celebrate each person’s culture, religion and talents. We also cherish our Irish heritage by speaking Irish, and celebrating Irish culture through song and dance.
We want to live in a ‘Green’ Ireland where people do not litter or cause pollution. We must respect the earth and the food and water it provides.
We will always cherish our freedom and never take it for granted. We hope that Ireland remains a peaceful and safe country for all who live here.
Finally, we honour the boys and girls of today who are the Ireland of tomorrow.
