The Oban Times - - News -

FORT Wil­liam’s Gaeli­conly school, Bun- Sgoil Ghàidhlig Loch Abar, will fea­ture ‘out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties’, ac­cord­ing to a High­land coun­cil spokes­woman.

Coun­cil­lor Hamish Fraser, chair­man of the lo­cal au­thor­ity’s Gaelic im­ple­men­ta­tion group, said it will ‘greatly en­hance’ lan­guage and cul­ture in Lochaber.

He added: ‘The ben­e­fits of bilin­gual ed­u­ca­tion have been widely ac­knowl­edged and this kind of ed­u­ca­tion will also help to de­velop and sus­tain the Gaelic lan­guage.’

Coun­cil­lor Drew Mil­lar, chair­man of ed­u­ca­tion, care and learn­ing and adult ser­vices, added the new school is ‘ea­gerly awaited’.
