Bòrd na Gàidhlig (BnG) is inviting Fife families along to an online information session to find out more about Gaelic-medium education (GME).

Gaelic-medium education means that children are taught primarily in Gaelic with English being used as a second language.

Jim Whannel, Director of Gaelic Education, at BnG, will deliver a short presentation on the benefits of Gaelic-medium with parents and carers able to ask questions afterwards.

There will be representatives from Fife Education Service there too, who will also be able to answer any questions.

Nicola Masterson, a Quality Improvement Officer with Fife Council, said: “We want to raise the awareness of GME in Fife and we’d like to hear from parents what they think. If you are interested and would like to find out more, please come along and we’ll try to answer any questions. “

Fife Council will co-host the meeting along with representatives of Comann nam Pàrant, the national organisation which offers advice and support on Gaelic medium education to parents.

The meeting takes place on Thursday 8 December 2021, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. This is a free event, but you need to register to attend. Go to www.bit.ly/GMEFife to sign up.
