The aims of Gaelic Department are to develop pupils’ Gaelic language skills and to support pupils’ personal development through Gaelic literature and culture. The children begin in Primary 1, usually ‘feeding in’ from the Gaelic Nursery in the school. During the first two years at school, the curriculum is delivered entirely in Gaelic. During Primary 3, the children begin a bilingual programme, with the introduction of English reading and writing. Finally, at Primary 6 and 7 stages the children also learn French.
