Dozens of P7 pupils from across Skye are getting together as part of the Safe Highlanders and Islanders initiative.

The event takes place at the Fingal Centre in Portree on Tuesday and is part of an educational activity based on a partnership approach, endeavoring to tackle challenging issues of community safety and crime prevention.

Children, following the event, become more aware of personal safety, potentially avoid becoming victims of crime, understand how to react to emergency situations and their chances of becoming good citizens increases.

The Safe Highlanders and Islanders project is based on the principle of “learning by doing” where Primary 7 pupils get the chance to experience a number of potentially hazardous situations and participate in a range of simulated practical exercises.

Pupils will also be able to acquire life saving skills including first aid, fire and water safety, safety on roads and internet safety. Children will also be presented with the dangers of electricity, building sites and substance misuse
