Irish Sign Language Club visits the Deaf Village

On Wednesday 24th May 2017, the Irish Sign Language Club visited the Deaf Village; a state of the art complex that caters for the religious, artistic, social, sporting, historical and educational needs of members of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community.

Students received a tour of the complex that houses Deaf organisations such as the Irish Deaf Society. They also visited the Emmaus Chapel, The Hub and a museum that contains artefacts that are of historical importance to the Deaf community.

Before their return to school, students put their Irish Sign Language skills to use by signing their name, age and other basic details about themselves with students from the Holy Family School for the Deaf.
