The development of Gaelic medium education in the Western Isles has received an extra
£330,000 from the Scottish Goverment.
The comhairle submits an annual application for the Scheme of Gaelic specific grant
for Gaelic education and has received Gaelic funding since 1986.
Angus McCormack chairman of the council’s education committee said the additional
will “continue to support the establishment of Gaelic Schools, the extension of provision
for Gaelic preschool education and the provision of an additional Gaelic teaching
class in Tong School.”
The local authority receives £18,000 yearly to support the delivery of Gaelic language
in the primary school.
