Six Schools, One Language Initiative

On Monday, two of Ms. Ryan's Sign Language classes went to Cabra in Dublin 7, to record the annual deaf song which will be posted on YouTube in the coming weeks. The classes had learned the signs and the song over the midterm and also practiced as a group in school before the day.

On the day, the girls and Ms.Ryan travelled to 'St.Mary's school for Deaf Girls' to record the song with 5 other schools (non-hearing and hearing). Some of our students took part in the harmony which was swaying or bouncing their legs to show the non-hearing a change in the song's beat. They ran through the song with the other school before recording it multiple times.  It was a great experience in which we got to raise awareness of Irish Sign Language and to interact with non-hearing students!

The girls plan to teach the song to the rest of the year to perform as part of our end of year graduation.
