Students were tasked with producing eye-catching flower pictures in order to create a display in the windows at the front of school.

Staff and students hope that the vivid display gives thoughts of positivity and happiness for the future.

Many of the school’s students and staff have been directly affected by the pandemic, and some of the flowers included heartfelt messages to loved ones lost to COVID-19, and to those who have helped during this difficult time.

The school also observed a minute's silence to reflect on what has happened over the past year.

Principal Ian Young said: “We would like to thank all of those in our school community and our wider local community for the help and support through this year of COVID.

“With the end almost in sight, we spent the day reflecting on the past 12 months and thinking of those who have sadly lost their lives.”
