Ardnamurchan pair make it to Gaelic debating final
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.’
