Raising of Thomas Meagher Foundation Tricolour

Raising of Thomas Meagher Foundation Tricolour

Today Rice College raised the tricolour in honour of St. Patrick's Day and our 1st Year Class 1B were out in the sunshine to celebrate. The flag was gifted to the school by the Thomas Meagher Foundation. The Irish Flag was designed to be a symbol of peace and unity for the island of Ireland.

Later today Ukrainian flags will be raised alongside the tricolour to show our solidarity with people all over the world who suffer under oppression and violence. At the moment Rice College students and teachers are working on a project: Our Wall of Flags.

Wishing everyone a very Happy St.Patrick's Day ☘
