That this House notes the opening of Gaelic-medium primary school Bun-Sgiol Ghaidhlig Phort Righ by Deputy First Minister of Scotland, John Swinney MSP; acknowledges that this is the first such facility in Portree since a small band of pupils had begun to study in a Gaelic-medium unit established alongside the town's existing primary school over 23 years ago; further notes that there are 123 children and as many as 50 more in the pre-school Sgoil araich started at Bun-Sgiol Ghaidhlig Phort Righ, the Highland's third dedicated Gaelic school and the sixth in the country; thanks the parents, teachers, Scottish Government, Highland Council and all other stakeholders for their hard work over 10 years which has made this facility possible; recognises the well wishes of the community to head teacher Flora Guidi and her team in moving forward with this project in the years to come.
