Today, Thursday 16th April at 4pm, Education, Skills and Children’s Services staff from Comhairle nan Eilean Siar will hold a live stream discussion forum for pupils, parents, staff and members of the wider community.

You are invited to log in to the live stream, which will be broadcast from e-Sgoil using this link: http://www.e-sgoil.com/cnes-education-covid-19-april/

The focus of discussion will be measures that the Comhairle, with assistance from a range of partner organisations, is taking to ensure continuity of education services across the Western Isles during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Viewers will be able to submit questions in advance and during the livestream.

The live stream will be chaired by Colin George Morrison and will feature a panel – some of whom will be connecting remotely – including the Director of Education, Skills & Children’s Services, Bernard Chisholm, alongside service officers and headteachers.
