The successful Nicolson Debate team - John Alasdair Bain and Calum Maclennan

The Nicolson Institute topped the National Gaelic School Debate competition this week, scooping the winning spot from Lochaber High School.
The final of the 2017 National Gaelic Schools Debate took place at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday, November 29th and a very lively debate was heard with Clare Frances MacNeil and Iain Gillies from Lochaber High School going up against John Alasdair Bain and Calum Maclennan from The Nicolson Institute A.
And it was the gentlemen from The Nicolson who came out victorious to bring the national silverware across the Minch.
The committee would like to thank organisations who helped fund and support this year’s Debate: The Scottish Government, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Skills Development Scotland, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Glasgow City Council, Highland Council, and Comunn na Gàidhlig.
