Learners across Bower Primary School and Keiss Primary School and Nursery have been praised for their "resilience and enthusiasm" during the course of an unprecedented year.
Head teacher Fraser Thomson said the pupils had come through the many challenges facing them "with a smile on their face" and expressed his gratitude for the support they had received from their families and school staff.
Pupils and staff gathered outside to recognise pupils' achievements at their respective end-of-term assemblies through awards ceremonies.
In each case, the prize-giving presentations allowed for a farewell to the primary seven pupils who will transition to Thurso High School or Wick High School after the summer.
Mr Thomson said: “In what has been an unprecedented year, our learners across both schools and nursery have demonstrated resilience and enthusiasm in the challenges that they have faced.
"Not only have they overcome those challenges but have conquered them with a smile on their face. This has been accomplished with the unrivalled and dedicated support from our staff and families.”
