Drummond Community High School/Gaelic Medium Education: update

(adapted from an email from DCHS parents’ council)

This follows on from item 10 of LCCC’s January’s minutes, where it was reported:

On 8 December, an informal consultation on Gaelic Medium Education (GME) suggested that Drummond Community High School (DCHS) could become the site for delivering GME to secondary pupils from Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pàirce primary school, and that DCHS could later become GME-only. This has caused much concern for parents of pupils at primary schools that feed DCHS. CEC has been asked for assurance that pupils (and their younger siblings) who have started at DCHS can complete their education there. A formal consultation is due in March.

The parent’s council emailed LCCC this evening:

We have now had a commitment that ‘Pupils living within the existing Drummond High School catchment area will continue to attend the school.’ Education Children and Families Committee has decided to widen the options for GME beyond Drummond. We welcome the commitment and decision.

We are emphasising to the community that it is business as usual at Drummond. If your constituents have any questions, please feel free to direct them to the school, Drummond Parent Council or this page in the Parent Council section of the school website: https://drummondhigh.org/parentcouncil/gaelic-medium-education-proposal
