PUPILS at a Ross-shire secondary school paid their own poignant respects to a man who became a national treasure during the coronavirus crisis.
Plockton High School pupils bade a fond farewell to the inspirational Captain Tom Moore, who raised almost £40m for NHS charities after deciding to walk 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday, with an initial £1000 target.
Captain Tom became Sir Tom Moore when he was knighted by the Queen - and even had a number one single for his cover of You'll Never Walk Alone with Michael Ball.
The secondary school posted: "Captain Tom's philosophy was very much about looking for the silver lining, and he firmly believed 'tomorrow will be a good day'. In one of his very first interviews, Captain Tom said: 'One little soul like me isn't going to make much difference'. The rest is history - and we feel confident in saying Captain Tom epitomises just how much difference 'one little soul' can make. So goodbye Captain Tom, rest peacefully."
It added: "What one little thing could YOU do to help make tomorrow a good day? One of our S1 pupils has signed up for the February 10,000 steps challenge for Children's Hospices across Scotland."
