If you've got questions or want more information about enrolling your child into Gaelic Medium Education, especially in light of the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar's latest decision to automatically enrol all children going in to Primary 1 in 2020/21 to Gaelic medium unless parents request English medium, we are showing a live stream panel from E-sgoil in Stornoway on Tuesday 21st January at 7pm here at Cothrom.
Before the live stream you'll also be able to ask questions about 'Càirdeas Coimhearsnachd', a partnership project of which one of the aims is to give parents practical support towards raising their children with Gaelic.
For more event information, please see the listing on Facebook here. You will also be able to watch the live stream yourself if you are unable to attend, here.
We held our first event for Às an Tobar - Uist Book Festival on Sunday in Stoneybridge Hall. Den making, book swaps, arts and crafts, and readings were enjoyed with a light lunch.

The Mentorprise Maker's Forum is a network of Uist makers and producers brought together by the Cothrom Mentorprise project with the aim of making connections between producers to improve the sustainability of their craft.
In the past we have had informative talks on marketing and product design by Robin of Hebridean Candles, and on setting up a social enterprise by Sarah MacLean, of Bùth Bharraigh - to which we also made a site visit. Recently, we made a site visit to Uist Wool where we learnt about the process of turning sheep's fleeces into artisan yarn, and to the Grimsay Community Association at Ceann na h-Àirigh where small producers are able to stock their products.
The Mentorprise Maker's Forum was created for makers and producers who are often sole traders as an opportunity to meet others in similar positions to share their experiences and support. If you would like to sign-up for any future talks, workshops, or site visits - please don't hesitate to get in touch with Project Lead Fiona Bateman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
