“What Scotland Means to me”

Capturing the beauty of Scotland…………

Class Tiree and Whalsay took part in a photography project during the 1st school term.

They displayed all the photographs they took and invited their parents into school to view and purchase the portraits.

The class then entered some of the photographs into a competition organised by “Scran”. The competition was held to celebrate Scran’s 20th year and asked schoolchildren to show “What Scotland Means to Me” in a photo.

Class Tiree  impressed judges with their group picture and won the additional support needs category.   Their image promotes an  atmospheric shot, with varied shades of green that invite you to wander down the path and into the woodlands.”

The school and class were delighted when they heard the wonderful news and were so proud of their achievements.

The images will now become records on Scran, sitting alongside material from National Museums Scotland, National Galleries Scotland and the Scotsman newspaper.

This afternoon we welcomed two visitors from Scran,  to present the award to class Tiree.

The school has won three iPads for use in its classrooms which I’m sure will allow the pupils to continue to take amazing pictures of their local community and beyond during outdoor learning.

Look out for the framed image next time you visit the school.
