Pupils at Lochpots School in Fraserburgh have taken part in a fund-raising drive for Red Nose Day.
The pupils got dressed up for the occasion and even had their faces painted as part of the appeal for Comic Relief last Friday.

All pupils, including the Nursery, were invited to wear something red for the day, with many youngsters bringing in the red noses they had bought.
A host of activities were due to take place throughout the day as well as an assembly in the afternoon. To their delight, pupils in the nursery even had the chance to paint Nursery Nurse Mrs Geddes’s face!
Less than half way through the day, the school had already raised over £250 for the annual fund-raising telethon. The final figure was expected to be even higher once all donations are added up.
Commenting, Head Teacher Alison Little said: “It’s a good opportunity for the children to support people in Africa and at home who are less fortunate than themselves.
“The children always have fun doing it. The pupils have been dressing up and having their faces painted and we’re having a celebrations assembly in the afternoon.”
