D & V BUG —Remember it is 48 hours after the last bout of sickness/diarrhoea that you can send your child into school.

The Bunscoill Ghaelgagh is unique, as our students learn through a second language, Manx Gaelic. They leave school with something special; fluency in a second language, the benefits of a bilingual brain and a strong sense of identity.
