“British Irish Council Seminar
On the 13th of November a delegation from Cornwall consisting of Rael Harvey, Esther Johns, Jenefer Lowe, Rhisiart -Tal-e-bot and Mike Tresidder attended a British Irish Council seminar in Cardiff focused on promoting indigenous, minority and lesser-used languages through early years education.
The event provided the attendees the opportunity to work with delegates from across the IML (Indigenous, Minority and lesser-used Languages) work sector in a series of workshops and discussions.
(The IMLs the group concentrates on are Irish, Welsh, Gaelic, Scots, Ulster Scots, Manx, Jèrriais, Guernsey French and Cornish).
Not only was the event useful to hear about what other people are doing from an early years educational perspective and share good practice, it also allowed the Cornish delegation the opportunity to articulate our unique circumstances to a wider audience. Indeed, we think it’s fair to say that, not only was a generosity of spirit demonstrated towards the Cornish experience as a whole, some attendees felt we had practical lessons and experiences that could be of use in their own administrations.
