PUPILS and parents at a Wester Ross secondary school have been praised for "doing a great job" adapting to the coronavirus lockdown.
In his weekly "assembly" to Gairloch High School, head teacher Wim Chamlet also thanked the vast majority of pupils for registering on a daily basis.
In his online assembly message, he said: "The overall message is that you are doing a great job." He said there had been positive feedback from teachers about engagement with remote learning.
And he welcomed the fact that 98 per cent of pupils were registering before 9.30am n a daily basis, noting this is a legal requirement for schools.
Urging people not to stress if they were struggling with anything, he said: "Just be the best that you can be."
He also encouraged pupils to ensure they take physical activity on a daily basis and "enjoy the beautiful area that we live in".
