Gaelic Project.
We aim to work with the community. Over the past few weeks we had the Inverness
Gaelic School. A group of p5’s up to p7’s came and performed some Gaelic songs in the
home, the children then talk to our residents who can speak Gaelic and learn some new
songs as well as the story behind it.
