Gaelic Holiday Week for families 2009
26th July to 1st August 2009
Following last year’s very successful event Comunn na Gàidhlig and Comann nam Pàrant are organising another Gaelic week in Lewis for families with children in Gaelic medium education. The re-establishment of Gaelic as a ‘mother tongue’ and the crucial role Gaelic use within the home and family has to the revival of the language is now widely recognised and this week will add to the support already available to parents who are keen to increase their use of Gaelic in their home.
Adults will attend Gaelic classes each day whilst the children are at the Fèis in Stornoway.
The chalets that we have used in previous years are not available and we have decided this year that parents will arrange and pay for their own accommodation and we will refund 50% of the cost of this up to a maximum of £250. There is information on accommodation in the Stornoway area on the Visit Scotland website and we can also recommend the Caravan Park at Laxdale.
Participants will be liable for their own travel and food expenses.
