The Manx Gaelic School, or Bunscoill Ghaelgagh in Manx, is a primary school where the children learn every subject through Manx Gaelic. As of September 2007 there will be 55 children learning entirely through the language. The children quickly become fluent in the Manx Language and also enjoy the benefits of a bi-lingual education and a learning environment which offers a great insight to Manx culture and music.
Working together with the school is the Manx playgroup organisation Mooinjer Veggey (Manx for Little People). This was established in 1996 and operates five groups in the Island. These are a great introduction for pre-school children who learn the language through songs and rhymes. Many of the children at the playroups later take up places at the Bunscoill. The language is also taught in the Island's schools. It is an option for all primary age children and students can take GCSE and A Level equivalent examinations in the language.
