AN Easter Ross head teacher has appealed to parents and carers to ensure children cycling to school wear helmets.
The appeal was issued by South Lodge Primary in Invergordon.
Head teacher David Hayes-Macleod used its Facebook page to issue the appeal.
He said: "I have noticed that many children are cycling to school which is great, but the majority are not wearing a helmet.
"In assembly I reminded all children on the importance of wearing a helmet when cycling, scootering etc. Therefore if children turn up without a helmet we will be ringing home for their bike to be collected and only when the child has a helmet can they cycle or scoot to school.
"I'm sure you all join me in understanding the importance of this."
