Dunoon Grammar School is the winner of the Gaelic Education Award at this year’s Scottish Education Awards held in Glasgow today (Wednesday).
The award recognises early learning and childcare settings and schools that have developed a positive culture of continuous improvement in relation to Gaelic Medium and Gaelic Learner Education.
Argyll and Bute Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly, said: “This is wonderful news and a massive achievement for everyone at Dunoon Grammar. It is vital that we provide our children and young people with opportunities to continually progress and I would like to congratulate everyone involved. Keep up the great work.”
Head Teacher at Dunoon Grammar, David Mitchell, said: “I am delighted that we have won this national award for our work in continuing to promote Gaelic education at Dunoon Grammar. The staff and pupils have worked extremely hard to achieve this, so it was an absolute honour to be able to attend the ceremony with pupils from the school to collect our award.”
