Pupils at a Mull primary school have been presented with a top award for their participation in green activities.
Youngsters at Ulva Primary have been planting new trees on the island and creating artwork using natural materials.
In addition, they have visited local woods and completed workshops with a countryside ranger to learn more about their surroundings.
The school has now been given a gold award by The Woodland Trust in recognition of the action which has been taken to help the environment.
Head teacher Susie Carmichael said: “The children have worked really hard on a wide range of exciting challenges to achieve their bronze, silver and now gold Woodland Trust Award.
“This would not have been possible without the support of our wonderful community.
“This has been a wonderful learning experience for the children and I’m so proud of them.
“They have become passionate about the vital part trees have to play in maintaining our environment.”
Argyll and Bute Council’s policy lead for education, Yvonne Mcneilly, said: “This is a fabulous initiative by The Woodland Trust that gives children the opportunity to explore the natural world from a number of different perspectives.
“Outdoor learning has a whole host of benefits.
“Not only does it boost children’s development, it encourages empathy through nature and promotes positive mental health and wellbeing.
“The work done by the staff and pupils at Ulva Primary has opened up a new world of experiences to the whole school community.”
