Rang 6 have been focussing on some Irish folk music this term, and after learning “The City of Chicago/Cathair Mhór Chicago” and “The Fields of Athenry,” here’s our latest effort. “As I Leave Behind Neidín” is a song written by Jimmy McCarthy and made famous by Mary Black. It is often associated with emigration. Neidín is the Irish name for Kenmare, Co Kerry. Enjoy!
As part of our biodiversity flag we are learning about sharks and how important they are to maintaining the biodiversity of our oceans. Sharks have been feared for so long that they have been hunted in huge numbers and quite ruthlessly and unnecessarily so. Did you know that sharks kill only 10 people a year throughout the world but humans are responsible for killing 100 million sharks a year.
