Appeal for Support


An appeal for support has been issued by the Gaelic Medium support group Comann Nam-Pàrant – Inbhir Nis:

They ask:

“Can you help us?

The Highland Council are considering appointing a non Gaelic speaking Head Teacher to a permanent post at Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis.

As parents we believe that a permanent fluent Gaelic Head Teacher is essential for our school because:

• It is essential for our children who are the future of Gaelic

• Gaelic medium education should embrace and include all aspects of Gaelic culture not just the language

•Total immersion creates fluent, capable and confident Gaelic speakers, nurtured in a totally Gaelic environment

• Gaelic deserves a high status in the school and to be respected by all

• It sets a precedent for other Gaelic medium schools not only in the Highlands but across Scotland

We ask you to please consider the points above, and to help us secure a Gaelic Speaking Head Teacher, thank you.
