Mapland Alba & Sligheadaireachd ( Orienteering)  le CNAG


National Gaelic Sports and activities provider CNAG  visited the school last week as part of our ‘Ceanglaichean agus Cothroman’ initiative which aims to further links and opportunities for GM and  also now Gaelic learners as well.


As well as the Mapland activity during which the pupils learned more about the Geography of Scotland, they also took part in our first Orienteering activity ( Sligheadaireachd) which was held  outdoors in beautiful -  but very cold weather;  bracing but thoroughly enjoyed by all  !

Lochaber Weaving Tales Project

The S1 Art pupils were invited to share their favourite things about living in Lochaber and created some amazing squares for The Lochaber Story Quilt. The Highlife Highland Ranges have been busily sewing together around 900 pieces to create 21 panels which together make up the entire quilt. The quilt will be on display in the Fort William library from the 6th of February and library. Families can come and view the quilt and share a few stories with us all.

18 January 2023Rotary Young Photographer Success!

10 January 2023Film G 2023

The Gaidhlig medium pupils have been busy on their film G projects again this year producing two films which highlight their imagination, creativity and strong use of the language. The theme this year was ‘Buidhe’ or ‘Yellow’ which encouraged film-makers to interpret this word in any way they desired.


The S1 and S2 GM pupils were involved in a production called ‘Cuirt nan Dathan’ which focuses on the decision by God to get rid of one of the colours of the spectrum - each colour has two minutes to justify their existence or face being removed forever !  Link below. - you might be quicker typing the titles though ! 




The second ‘Gaidhlig sa Chiste’ ( Gaelic in the coffin’) is an independent  production is by S4 GM student  Parker Dawes who has achieved great success in the competition in recent years. Again Parker fails to disappoint with his thought provoking short animated film on the place of Gaidhlig in an increasingly monolingual world. 




Please remember to vote when the public vote choice becomes available !

10 January 2023Film G 2023


Tha na sgoilearan Gàidhlig air a bhith trang air na pròiseactan film G aca a-rithist am-bliadhna a’ dèanamh dà fhilm a tha a’ nochdadh am mac-meanmna, an cruthachalachd agus cleachdadh làidir a’ chànain. B’ e cuspair na bliadhna-sa ‘Buidhe’ no ‘Yellow’ a bhrosnaich luchd-dèanamh fhilmichean am facal seo a mhìneachadh ann an dòigh sam bith a bha iad ag iarraidh.


Bha na sgoilearan AS1 agus S2 MG an sàs ann am film goirid leis an ainm ‘Cuirt nan Dathan’ a tha a’ cuimseachadh air co-dhùnadh Dhè cuidhteas fhaighinn de aon de dhathan an speactram - tha dà mhionaid aig gach dath airson dearbhadh gu bheil iad ann no thèid an toirt air falbh gu bràth. ! Ceangal gu h-ìosal.




’S e riochdachadh neo-eisimeileach a th’ anns an dàrna film ‘Gàidhlig sa Chiste’ le oileanach S4 Parker Dawes a tha air soirbheachadh gu mòr san fharpais o chionn beagan bhliadhnaichean. A-rithist chan eil Parker ag adhbhrachadh briseadh dùil leis an fhiolm ghoirid bheòthail aige air àite na Gàidhlig ann an saoghal a tha a' sìor fhàs aona-chànanach.




Feuch an cuimhnich thu bhòtadh nuair a bhios an roghainn bhòt poblach ri fhaighinn!
