An exhibition will be held at Rozelle House Museum and Galleries in Ayr from Friday 17 to Wednesday 22 June, to showcase a range of media created by school pupils to reflect on their pandemic experiences.

Schools and education centres across South Ayrshire have been invited by the Council to participate in the "Our Pandemic" project, which allows children and young people to tell the stories of their individual lockdown experiences and process the period of uncertainty.

Teaching resources were provided to the schools to facilitate discussion and allow the participants to submit their reflections across three categories - written, audio and visual. Three submissions from each of these categories will be chosen to go on display at the exhibition.

Councillor Stephen Ferry, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Education said: 'Young people have lived through one of the most significant events in recent history and, although many of us suffered loneliness through the lockdowns, everyone's experience is unique.

'This is a great opportunity for children to show us what remote learning and isolation has been like for them, and to reflect on the last few years. I'm sure it'll make for an interesting exhibition. Thank you to all the young people who submitted work!'

A showcase of the works will also be sent out via the "Our Pandemic" twitter - @OurPandemicSAC
