Djembe drums originated in Africa. They are made with a wooden shell and a head made from animal hide, usually it belongs to a goat. Lukasz came to our school to teach us about the djembe and others drums. We played the drums and sang songs. We had lots of fun. We made the video in school. Evan from fourth class is speaking as Mr. Turtle and the presenter is me, Clíona, from sixth class.
Listen to Lorna, Amy and Megan in the Junior room sing ‘A Song To Bridget.’
We made crosses from rushes in honour of St. Bridget, one of Ireland’s patron saints along with Saints Patrick and Columba.
