Dedicated to the Gaelic Language of the Isle of Man
Mooinjer Veggey


Mooinjer Veggey is an educational charity which exists to promote the knowledge and use of Manx Gaelic among young people. Established in 1996, it currently runs Possan Cloie, two nurseries and the Bunscoill Ghaelgagh. Our aim is to provide education with or through the Manx language, giving children the advantages of learning a second language at an early age.

Possan Cloie is a parents and tots group in which children and parents learn and use Manx language through activities, songs and rhymes. It meets in St. Johns on Monday mornings during term time.

Mooinjer Veggey Nurseries operate in Braddan and Ballasalla during term time and cater for two to four year olds. They are registered with the Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum encouraging learning through play. Within this children learn Manx Gaelic through songs and rhymes and by using limited but regular Manx words and phrases in daily routines.

Bunscoill Ghaelgagh at St. Johns is the world’s only Manx medium primary school. It is run by Mooinjer Veggey in conjunction with the Isle of Man Department of Education and Children and the curriculum is taught entirely through the Manx language.
