"Rhythm is a dancer,
It's a soul's companion,
People feel it everywhere"
Last week the Transition Years of St Wolstan's were fortunate enough to have Dave from Jabba Jabba Jembe come to give drumming workshops during school. We learnt about rhythm, technique and culture, all the while having a blast. We found it very interesting and it was a lovely bonding experience for the classes as well. Some of the teachers even joined in and really enjoyed it! Thanks to our Music teacher Ms G for organising it and thanks to Dave for this wonderful experience. Aoife and Lauren from RTY interviewed Dave and here is what he had to say:

This week TY held an Awareness Week about the importance of educating girls. As well as announcements, and posters around the school, they showed a story from the film Girl Rising to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Years in the Demo Room each lunchtime. Tickets were given out the day before to a lucky 60 students each day, and popcorn was provided! It was like our own cinema in school but with a serious topic of course. Here Radio TY team members catch up with TY's, 1st and 2nd Years and ask them their thoughts after seeing the film.
Listen here to some 1st Years who feel inspired to do something about the issue!
