End of term lessons at Crown Primary School in Inverness were like a breath of fresh air.

The school was at the forefront of a national campaign, Clean Air Day, to get youngsters out and about before they broke up for the half-term holidays.

Clean Air Day in Scotland is co-ordinated by the charity Environmental Protection Scotland (EPS), on behalf of the Scottish Government.

Crown Primary School head teacher Miriam MacDonald said children loved being at the forefront of environmental issues.

She added: “We encouraged children to walk to school, and we were outside all day looking at ways that we could spend more time outside.”

EPS policy and communications officer John Bynorth said he was delighted Crown Primary School staff and pupils were supporting Clean Air Day again, two years after the school became the first in Scotland to stage an event.

He said: “We are delighted that the pupils are continuing to learn about air quality and I look forward to returning to the school, hopefully in time for Clean Air Day 2021.”
