Pupils from Islay High School have been praised at the Scottish Parliament after they were shortlisted for the FilmG Gaelic Learners Award.
Their success was highlighted in a parliamentary motion submitted by Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron.
Mr Cameron said: “Islay is one of the heartlands of Gaelic and it is immensely encouraging to see local young people, supported by their teachers, producing such a high quality film project in the medium of Gaelic.
“The future prospects of the language are vested in the commitment of the next generation of speakers and learners, so well done to all those involved.”
Mr Cameron’s motion is provided for information:
