This week, it was announced the Bunscoill Ghaelgagh is 'going mainstream'.

From September, it’ll be a ‘fully maintained’ government school, for the first time in its 19-year history.

In this programme, we hear all about the truly unique place of learning – its past, and its future.

Dollin Mercer speaks to Education Minister Dr Alex Allinson about the school's transition.

But first, he's joined in the studio by two people who have been instrumental in the life of the school to date.

Annie Kissack has been a teacher at the Bunscoill since the beginning.

Phil Gawne is the Finance Director at Mooinjer Veggey – the charity which runs the school.
