PUPILS from Bow­more Pri­mary School on Is­lay en­joyed a visit to Skye’s Gaelic Col­lege.

Funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, the trip pro­vided pri­mary five, six and seven pupils with the chance to im­merse them­selves in the Gaelic lan­guage and see how the col­lege op­er­ates.

As well as learn­ing, the chil­dren en­joyed sail­ing in open ca­noes, play­ing shinty and swim­ming.

Head teacher Mau­reen Mac­Don­ald said: ‘The trip was ben­e­fi­cial and en­abled pupils to see there are lots of learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple with an in­ter­est in Gaelic, both at the col­lege and by dis­tance learn­ing.

‘We stayed in the stu­dent accommodation which was beau­ti­ful and the chil­dren were given the op­por­tu­nity to use the broad­cast and record­ing equip­ment. This cre­ated a lot of ex­cite­ment.

‘It was a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence and I would like to thank Bòrd na Gàidhlig for mak­ing it pos­si­ble.’
