The Society has been making an annual donation to Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pairce for many years, going back to the days when it was the Gaelic class of Tollcross Primary School.
The school was established as an independent unit in August 2013, in its current location in Bonnington Road, and is Edinburgh's first dedicated, Gaelic-medium primary school.
The Council has been thinking about how the Society can do more to support the school in its independent incarnation. Currently, it looks after around 300 primary age pupils, who come from a wide range of backgrounds - not just the children of Highland Scots in the capital. In primary One alone, for example, there are three children of Polish parents and five whose first language is Spanish.
