A ROSS-SHIRE secondary has hailed the perseverance of its new S1 intake during one of the biggest public health challenges in generations.
Dingwall Academy made its remarks in a post on the school's social media channels at the end of the term as the October holidays begin.
It was the first term at school following the lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions and meant pupils having to adapt to a whole new set of safety guidelines.
That in turn followed several months of remote learning from home when Highland Council schools were closed completely for the Covid-19 lockdown period from March.
The school said: "It has been a very different term in so many ways.
"Pupils and staff have had to adapt to new ways of working and we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone.
"It has been a particularly challenging term for our new S1 who had to settle into their new school while dealing with all the different rules and restrictions.
"So we would like to finish this term with a collection of photos showing our new S1 in action!
"Wishing everyone a safe and restful holiday."
