The final of the 2019 National Gaelic Schools Debate took place at the Scottish Parliament on Thursday, with Benbecula’s Sgoil Lionacleit emerging victorious.
A very lively debate was heard with Joanne Laing and Marion MacCorquodale from Sgoil Lionacleit going up against Raonaid Campbell and Hamish Scott from Sgoil Sir E Scott on Harris.
Sgoil Lionacleit eventually came out the victors, while Raonaid Campbell from Sir E Scott was presented with the best debater award.
The organisations who helped to fund and support this year’s debate included the Scottish Government, Loganair, The SQA, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Skills Development Scotland, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Highland Council, Glasgow City Council, Comunn na Gàidhlig, Radio nan Gàidheal and Education Scotland.
