A ROSS-SHIRE secondary this week continued the virtual tour of its classrooms for pupils preparing to make the transition from primary school.

Dingwall Academy staged its first tour for pupils back in February using the Google technology that has been a mainstay of remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown period.

Senior pupils have helped by providing a film and sound crew.

The school yesterday posted: "Part 2 of our virtual tour for Primary 7 pupils took place this afternoon.This tour focussed on the first floor with visits to Science, RMPS, Social Subjects, Music and Languages.

"Part 3 of the tour will take place after Easter.

"Thank you to everyone involved today."

The school has planned a series of online events to help introduce P7 pupils at its feeder primaries to the Academy. It replaces the normal transition events which have not been possible this year.

The idea has been well received by many parents.
