Irish Sign Language Week (18th Sept - 22 Sept 2017)

We have chosen to take part in Irish Sign Language Awareness Week which begins this week on Monday September 18th.

Each class will take part and learn a different sign each day and the teachers will be including this in their lesson plan.

We encourage all parents to talk to the children about this when they go home and maybe learn some with them!

This year is a particularly important one for Irish Sign Language and the Deaf Community, as there is presently a Bill progressing through the Seanad and Dail to officially recognise ISL.
