Gaelic expansion

27th June 1997 at 01:00
Within days of the Education Minister urging education authorities to ensure they complemented Gaelic-medium primary teaching with pre-school provision, Glasgow announced that it is to open a 40 place Gaelic unit for under-fives at Rowena Nursery in the city's west end. Over 20 parents have already enrolled their children for August.

North Lanarkshire has decided to open its first Gaelic-medium unit at Condorrat Primary in Cumbernauld, beginning with the early years from August and backed by a Pounds 35,000 Scottish Office grant.

The council sends 26 pupils to Gaelic primary units in other authorities.
