PUPILS at a Wester Ross secondary school have been urged to carry out acts of kindness every day this week.

The challenge from Gairloch High School head teacher Wim Chamlet coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week.

In his virtual assembly, he praised pupils, staff and parents for their continued efforts during the coronavirus lockdown. He said: "You are all making a difference."

He said acts of kindness could begin with recognising one's own simple accomplishments in these challenging times.

He said: "This week I would like you to focus on acts of kindness. Try to do an act of kindness every day of the week and be proud of it."
