GME Videos, Comann nam Pàrant Nàiseanta
Comann nam Pàrant have released six new informative and concise videos about Gaelic Medium Education. The videos will look at GME at each stage from 0-18 and how families and schools dealt with lockdown.
The short videos feature a variety of people involved in Gaelic Medium Education including parents, practitioners, pupils and youth development officers. Aimed at informing new and existing families in Gaelic Medium Education, these short and engaging videos will show how GME settings and families have dealt with home-learning and provide more information about GME at each stage, Early Years, Primary and Secondary.
The videos have been produced in partnership with Highland Council and Bòrd na Gàidhlig and John MacDiarmid has been commissioned for the filming and editing, which has been challenging during this period of lockdown.
The six videos will be released on Comann nam Pàrant’s Social Media Channels and will be available on the Comann nam Pàrant website.
Helen MacKinnon, the Chairperson of the National Comann nam Pàrant Committee said:
‘We believe and hope that these videos will be informative and helpful to families that have children in GME, and also to families that are considering starting out on their path in GME.’
Joanne McHale, Education Manager at Bòrd na Gàidhlig said,
“These videos will be a great source of information for families across Scotland and will help them to make informed decisions when considering Gaelic Medium Education. Not only do they provide an insight into GME and the associated benefits, but they will provide families with useful tips on how to support and encourage children and young people to use Gaelic within the home setting. On behalf of Bòrd na Gàidhlig, I would like to thank the officers at Comann nam Pàrant for their hard work in creating this invaluable resource.”
