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.’
