Youngsters at an Inverness primary school were given a tasty treat as they welcomed back older pupils.
Audrey Kellacher, the headteacher at Lochardil Primary School, invited Miele’s Gelateria to bring their van to the site so that everyone could enjoy a generous scoop of Italian-style ice cream.
The 436 children, from nursery through to P7, and 60 staff at the school were pleased to get the unexpected treat and the youngsters were still talking about it days later.
Mrs Kellacher said: “It was such a wonderful day on Monday – it was like everybody was home, you know? It sounds crazy but it was just wonderful.
“None of the kids’ parents knew about it and we’ve never done anything like that before, but we just thought ‘let’s just give them a wee treat.’
“It was unbelievable, just the buzz of excitement which it created.”
