Comann nam Pàrant (Nàiseanta) appoints new Chair


Following the Annual General Meeting on the 18th May, Edinburgh parent, Bob McGowan has been appointed as Chair of the national committee of Comann nam Pàrant. Bob, whose daughter will be one of the pupils moving to the new school in Bonnington this summer, takes over from Dawn Morgan from Inverness as the Chair. On his new appointment Bob said:

“I look forward to working closely with other members of CnP(N) and associated groups in the forthcoming year in which we hope to see developments with national guidelines for Gaelic medium as well as parental entitlement to Gaelic medium education. I am delighted that our school in Edinburgh will be opening this year and hope that progress on schools will be made in other areas. I would like to thank the retiring chair for her commitment to Comann nam Pàrant over a number of years and we are pleased that she is able to continue as a committee member. I would like to have discussions on how to raise the profile of Comann nam Pàrant and encourage more parents to become involved with their groups, both at local and national level.”

Comann nam Pàrant are also delighted with the news that they are one of the organisations allocated funding through the Scottish Government’s Strategic Partnership Funding to enable us to continue to support the Gaelic early year’s sector. Magaidh Wentworth, Parental Officer with Comann nam Pàrant said:

“We are pleased to be given this opportunity to work with the government in delivering their national outcomes for children and families. This funding which will be distributed in collaboration with Bòrd na Gàidhlig is to support Gaelic years groups which are essential if we are to meet the targets set in the National Plan for Gaelic for growth in Gaelic medium education. These groups are open to all families who would like their children to speak Gaelic and benefit from the advantages of having a second language.”
