Form 4 have been learning about all things "Scottish" in their History lessons and what better way to develop their skills than learning some Gaelic. As a fluent gaelic-speaker, Mr MacDonald, grandfather of Emma and Caitlin Leckie, visited us to give us some phrases to try out at home. He showed us a map of Scotland, with all the place names in Gaelic, and taught us how to say various greetings. He continued to tell us about life growing up in a small village in northern Scotland. The photos were fascinating, particularly when he showed us the local school and its annual school photograph; there were only 6 children! We saw photos of men digging the peat for their fires, as there was no electricity, and the ways in which they caught fish. It was a fascinating insight so thank you, Mr MacDonald.
