SENIOR pupils at Dingwall Academy have taken a bow at a prize-giving which acknowledges effort and excellence in pursuits across the curriculum.
Like others across the county, Ross-shire's largest secondary adapted its activities dramatically during the coronavirus crisis with learning from home replacing face-to-face teaching in classrooms.
The return to classrooms has been a cause for celebration as the school gets back into its routine.
Dux Paul Graham and proxime accessit Angela Nankivell took a bow amongst an array of prize-winners with rector Karen Cormack reflecting on another successful school year.
Highland Council schools closed for the summer break last week and will return in August.
