Gaelic shinty…

On Thursday we unfortunately came to the end of our seven week block of Gaelic shinty sessions in Nairn as Millbank broke for the October holidays.  Throughout the sessions the children were able to improve their shinty skills week upon week, as well as also developing their ability to speak Gaelic in a sporting environment. All the boys and girls who took part were lucky enough to receive a certificate and medal for completing the seven week programme of shinty sessions.  This capped what has been an outstanding showing of shinty at Millbank primary over the past term. Special thanks to Comann nam Parant and Bord na Gaidhlig for all their help in making this happen.

Next steps…

Moving forwards, shinty will be continuing to grow within Nairn as Iain resumes his taster sessions at both Millbank and Rosebank Primaries after the October holidays.  As well as this shinty will be back in Nairn in other capacities through the Camanachd Association’s partnership with active schools and the local community. The next step in Nairn’s shinty journey is to offer weekly sessions for all children across the area.  Keep a close eye for confirmation of this and we will hopefully see you soon.
