The school was chosen as winners of an aerial photography competition and received 40 first class Royal Mail stamps with their winning picture on them as the prize.

Last year’s primary six pupils and teacher Mrs Bruce were involved in a project which investigated the history behind the local area, known as ‘Doomsdale’ and its papermaking industry.

As part of the project, aerial photographs of the 
area were taken by pupils using cameras attached to kites.

The photographs were then submitted to the West Lothian Archeological Trust, which assisted with their project work.

The photographs were then entered by the Trust for a Scottish National Aerial Photography Scheme competition and their entry proved successful with one winning the primary schools category.

Linlithgow Bridge PS headteacher Susan Webster said: ‘‘The project last year was an inter-generational project which saw pupils talk to former employees at the paper mills as well as a visit a paper mill in Fife.

‘‘I am very proud of the pupils and their achievement.’’
