Ludicrous Rebranding Of Auldyn School


Recommended Posts

More government waste of money on rebranding the two infant and junior schools at Lezayre road under a new unpronounceable Manx name and a new purple uniform to encompass the two schools. Who thinks these schemes up and who passes these totally unnecessary expensive projects for the tax payer and parents who will have to fork out for new uniforms in these difficult times.

It's just a name, jeez. You must have fuck all to worry about if that bothers you.

Shame to be losing four 'unpronounceable' Manx words; Auldyn (mountain stream) Scoill (school) Ree (King) and Gorree (Godred) for two; Bunscoill (primary) and Rhumsaa (Ramsey). Of course it makes se

Manxforums has already bleated hard about this:

Presumably only unpronounceable if you don't speak Manx.

 

How many people do speak Manx?

1823 according to the 2011 census, although many more would have the knowledge to pronounce a few basic words.

There is an irony in that the dept. of education did nothing to further people of my generations knowledge of the Manx, although even non speakers will know a few words from common place names - the ones that haven't been Anglosized like the road names that are needlessly translated into English.
