I have benefited in many ways from the education at Glasgow Gaelic school. Not only was the experience and education at the school second to none, the dedication the teachers showed help guide me into the industry I am in today.
The skills learnt during my time at the school are endless. One major skill that may not be an obvious one but has stuck with me, is the ability to simplify complex subjects and help someone not trained or qualified in that area to understand what is happening and why it is important.
This skill comes from years of taking Gaelic reading and writing, translating it for not only self understand but the understanding of others.
The school also teaches manners and respect in a way that is lost in the standard Education system.
The teachers take pride in Every pupil, ensuring no child is left struggling.
From someone that is teaching apprentices, and leading engineering tasks, these skills helped me to take pride in the work I carry out and see that everyone has potential to succeed given the right help and support.
