PUPILS at an Easter Ross primary school found a touching and highly creative way to mark remembrance day as those lost in conflicts were honoured.

The P4 class at South Lodge Primary in Invergordon copied the names on the town's war memorial for a piece of artwork.

Head teacher David Hayes-MacLeod said: All of the names were taken from the Invergordon War Memorial which allowed the children to really connect to the war in a different way knowing all these names were local and, perhaps, distant relatives of some of them.

"A great way to remember the fallen. Well done Primary 4!! I’m super proud of you all!"

After sharing the piece on its social media, others praised pupils for their efforts.

Linda Barbara Sutherland posted: "Fabulous, well done kids."

Kate Bell said: "This is lovely, well done to you all."
