Welcome to Comann nam Pàrant
Welcome to the website of Comann nam Pàrant, the national organisation which offers advice and support on Gaelic medium education to parents.
Comann nam Pàrant (CnP), which means "Parents’ Organisation", consists of a network of around 30 local groups, representing the interests of parents whose children are educated through the medium of Gaelic at the various levels, from pre-school to secondary level. The main aim of all CnP groups is "to promote and support the establishment and maintenance of education through the medium of Gaelic". It was as a result of the efforts of parents that Gaelic medium education (GME) first began in 1985. Most of the children in GME come from homes where neither parent speaks Gaelic.
On our site you will find information on Gaelic medium education, advice leaflets and reports and news on the activities of Comann nam Pàrant groups.
