Oidhche Shamhna Ghàidhealach | Halloween Gaelic Weekend

October 22 – 24, 2021

Spend the weekend at our beautiful St. Ann’s campus, while learning the Gaelic language in a safe and engaging environment! This weekend explores traditional Halloween practices and beliefs, and includes spooky stories around the fire. Classes are taught through the Gàidhlig aig Baile (GaB) teaching methodology, which blends immersion and activity-based learning. This weekend is appropriate for ages 7 and older, and families are encouraged to attend together. The deadline for registration is Monday, October 18.


A special feature of this weekend will be instructor Angus MacLeod’s book launch for his new graphic novel:
Saturday October 23 | 6:30pm | Colaisde na Gàildhlig/The Gaelic College

Ás a Chamhanaich – A dozen tales of creatures magical and human, worlds strange and familiar, fantasy and a touch of horror. This is a debut Gaelic-language graphic novel from Cape Breton author-artist Angus MacLeod.
