Pupils at Brora Primary School are sending a road safety message to drivers.
The school’s road safety committee, which comprises p5 and p6 pupils have designed a banner to put on their school gates.
On it is the message: “Don’t park here. Keep these gates clear! Children's safety matters as well!”
Head teacher Mairi Scott said: “The committee feel pupils who walk to school would feel safer if there wasn’t so many cars stopping and parking at the gates.”
The school recently held a Macmillan coffee morning and a sponsored walk in Uppat Woods.
Out of the money raised, £1,075 will be used to purchase school resources; £535 will go to Macmillan; £305 to fund school trips; and £120 to sponsor Paul Mackintosh, the father of a pupil at the school, who is climbing Kilimanjaro next year in aid of the charity Safe, Strong and Free.
Ms Scott has thanked the community for their support of both events. “We are so lucky in Brora to have such fantastic parents and to be part of a wonderful community,” she said.
