PUPILS at a Wester Ross secondary school will pay poignant tribute on Remembrance Day next week.

Gairloch High School has shared its intention to mark the occasion next Wednesday at a time when formal parades and ceremonies have been postponed because of the coronavirus threat.

Members of the S2 year group will represent the school at Gairloch War Memorial on Wednesday, November 11 at 11am to remember on behalf of the community.

A piper will play the lament and a wreath will be laid, the school said in a posting shared to a number of community groups.

It said: "We hope it brings comfort to you that a group will be at the war memorial as we know that you cannot be there together."
