Primary 1, 2, 3 and 4 children visited the Dunscore village war memorial and placed beautifully painted stones to remember those who lost their lives.

Their teacher, Mrs Wallace said “I think they have turned out so well, I might be biased though. Pupils have learned this week about why we wear poppies and how we remember those who fought and died for us in the war”.

Great job kids. The stones look fantastic.
