Schools across Ross-shire got in the mood early for Christmas.
Pupils at Mulbuie Primary have set up a nativity which was made available virtually for parents and relatives to watch, allowing celebrations while following social distancing guidelines.
P1-4 teacher Wendy Barclay said: "It was really good, staff have been working really hard as they had to sum it all up and then upload it online, but it was a great effort and the children were fantastic. We are actually considering to create a collection of bloopers to go with it.
"We have had a very positive feedback from parents and many people who normally would not be able to attend the show were able to see it online.
"It's something that the children can keep and share with their families.
"I think the children this year have been very resilient and rose up to every challenge. We are trying to keep everything as normal as possible for them."
Students and staff at Invergordon academy had a Christmas Jumper day and managed to raise £200 for Save the Children through donations. Staff were also involved in a Design your Christmas jumper challenge.
