Bha clas S1 air caogad facal a sgrìobhadh airson farpais Scottish Book Trust anns an Dùbhlachd.
Thàinig deagh naidheachd thugainn an t-seachdain seo chaidh – bha Calum Torrens, a tha air a’ chiad bhliadhna, air an fharpais ‘Gaelic writers’ a bhuannachadh!
B’ e cuspair an fharpais ‘Ceabain Geamhraidh’, agus gheibhear barrachd fiosrachadh mun fharpais an seo:
Miss Bruce’s S1 Gàidhlig class entered the Scottish Book Trust’s short story competition in December 2019. Pupils had to submit a 50-word story based on the December theme, ‘Winter Cabin’.
This month we found out that our very own Calum Torrens had won this month’s competition, winning book tokens from the Gaelic Books Council. Well done, Calum! To see his entry and the other winning stories, follow the link below:
Calum Torrens, age 12
Am measg nan craobhan chan eil duine ann ach mise, air chrith leis an fhuachd.
Chùm mi an teine a’ dol airson mo thilleadh bhon fhuachd.
Le eagal mo bheatha, thog mi mo chasan airson lorg am fiodh a chùm mi beò.
Air ais san t-seòmar bhlàth, a’ cadal leum fhèin.
Translation by Gaelic Books Council
Amongst the trees there is nobody but me, shivering with the cold.
I kept the fire going to keep me from the chill.
Scared for my life, I got up to find the wood to keep me alive.
Back in the warm room, sleeping by myself.
