A DAY of creative hairstyling at an Inverness school helped children learn a valuable lesson about bullying while also providing pupils with a few laughs.

Cradlehall Primary School’s rights respecting schools ambassadors organised a crazy hair day as a way of highlighting the importance of personal expression.

As part of national Anti-Bullying Week, students were also invited to dress up back-to-front for the occasion.

Depute head teacher Vivienne Goodall said: “There has been a very good response – most of the students participated in the initiative.

“It underlines that everybody is individual and unique and no-one should be made fun of.

“We did various activities to raise awareness of anti-bullying but this is, for us, ongoing work that covers the whole year. We are also aiming to raise the profile around various aspects of bullying such as verbal and non-verbal forms of it, as well as cyberbullying.”
