Spòrs Gàidhlig and COVID-19

Spòrs Gàidhlig will follow all advice issued by the Scottish Government with regards to gatherings of people, camps and events.  We also work closely with schools and local authorities and will ensure we follow their advice. 

 

At the current moment, we are not deliverying activities or offering Gaelic residentials. This will remain the situation until at least the 13th of June we think. We are still open and working from home and you can contact us at fios@spors.scot and through our Facebook page.  

 

If schools close or the Government issues advice and direction against public gatherings, we will follow that advice. 

 

We still hope that our summer camps programme will go ahead (Campa Sradagan x2 and Campa Fhèis Spòrs) although at this moment, we can't be sure. There are still places available on all of these camps and more and we will refund in full any fees paid if the events do not take place.  

 

In the meantime, we do understand the concern of children, parents, schools and communities. We must all work together in this situation and we will update this page. our Facebook page and our Twitter feed as the situation develops. 

 

Take care and look after everyone!

 

How we use Gaelic

Spòrs Gàidhlig is able to deliver activities in Gaelic or English.  We are fully bilingual and experienced in working with schools and youth groups.  We can tailor your experience for your needs. 

Schools with no Gaelic - the majority of schools do not offer Gaelic as a subject or a medium to learn. We can offer activities and programmes which fit the needs of schools and introduce the language to young people. Before you come, we can help you introduce the language through our dedicated education resources. An introduction to Gaelic could be as simple as a few phrases and landscape terms with the rest concentrating on the activities themselves. Introducing Gaelic works well with topics such as Scottish history, geography, languages, land issues and environmental subjects.  

Gaelic learners - We can help support your learners by offering our activities at a level appropriate to learners of Gaelic. Our activities and programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of primary school learning and secondary. We are able to adjust the level of Gaelic  for the group and will discuss how this is done prior to the activity taking place.  

Learners are often highly motivated but lack opportunity to use the language. We can offer exciting, safe and educational setting to develop Gaelic understanding and facility.  

Gaelic speakers - We can offer all of our activities through the medium of Gaelic. We have long experience in working with schools where Gaelic is used as the main language. This includes primary and secondary education. We understand how to encourage young people to use Gaelic and support them with vocabularly and use of the language. Working with Spòrs Gàidhlig will mean that Gaelic is anchored in positive and exciting activities.
