A Highland primary school reopened yesterday after a sickness bug struck down 54 pupils and a number of staff.
Tarradale Primary, in Muir of Ord, underwent a deep clean over the weekend after a quarter of the school roll was affected by the vomiting and diarrhoea bug.
It is the second time in just under a month a school in the Highlands was closed because of sickness spreading through pupils and staff, with Kinmylies in Inverness also undergoing a deep clean.
Parents and local politicians said the decision by education chiefs was the right thing to do, especially just before Christmas.
Last night a Highland Council spokeswoman confirmed that the school had reopened yesterday.
