Pupils at an Easter Ross high school have started a new campaign to help the victims caught up in the Ukranian invasion.
The recently formed Social Justice Committee at Tain Royal Academy have been putting their heads together to come up with ways to help good causes, starting with arranging collections for the Ukraine appeal.
The new committee, which is run by guidance teacher Laura Humble, is attended by pupils from all year groups. Meeting once a week during lunchtimes, the group have been coordinating the collection of various items to be donated to refugees the world over.
The committee collected generous donations of clothing, bedding, toiletries and food from academy pupils, local primary schools and other members of the community. They then arranged for the items to be sorted and delivered to the Highland Refugee Support group, based in the Black Isle.
There was a surplus of food donated, and some late deliveries, which the pupils will now donate to the Tain food bank.
Ms Humble said: "The pupils were really enthusiastic and keen to help in any way that they can.
"The committee has only recently formed and we are looking forward to helping with other local good causes".
