I am delighted to say that a successful appointment was made yesterday to fill the post of Gaelic Medium Teacher when Mrs MacVicar’s secondment comes to an end following the Easter break. To give the candidate time to inform their school community, I will provide further details next week. The children in class were informed of this today by Mrs MacVicar also.
The Gaelic class worked with Mrs Laird to continue to develop their understanding of Children’s Rights today. We thought about what rights mean and which we knew already. We heard the story ‘I have the right to be a child’ by Alain Serres and then looked at some of the Rights of a Child. In groups, we ordered which we thought were most important to the least. We all had excellent ideas around this before learning that the Rights of the Child are all equal and are indivisible.
