Ard­na­mur­chan pair make it to Gaelic de­bat­ing fi­nal

The Oban Times - - News -

TWO ARD­NA­MUR­CHAN high school pupils have made it to the fi­nal of a na­tional Gaelic speak­ing de­bate.

Rona Nicol­son and Char­lie-Anne Plem­ing, both fifth years, achieved the high­est marks of the 20 teams com­pet­ing in the Stornoway qual­i­fiers of the Na­tional Gàidhlig De­bate and will travel to Ed­in­burgh for the fi­nals at the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment later this month.

Gaelic teacher John MacInnes was full of praise for his two stu­dents: ‘This is a huge achieve­ment for the girls who worked bril­liantly to­gether as a team through­out the com­pe­ti­tion. The stan­dard of de­bate was very high but they rose to the oc­ca­sion to out­per­form many larger schools and are now look­ing for­ward to the fi­nals.’

Head teacher Chris Mil­lar- Craig added: ‘We are very proud of the girls’ suc­cess and of what the Gaelic medium pro­vi­sion here at Ard­na­mur­chan High School has achieved. Well done to ev­ery­one in­volved.’
