VOLUNTEERING ABROAD

Each year a number of pupils decide to take a gap year before heading off to further studies or work.  The school is lucky to be supported by the Kintore Trust which each year gives grants to pupils who are intending to spend their year volunteering.

In 2015 Hollie Smith was successful in gaining an award from the Kintore Trust and has recently returned from a year in Malaysia where she taught English.  Hollie’s report of her year abroad and her learning experiences can be found below:

In 2016 four pupils were in receipt of the Kintore Trust Award.  Alexander Evison and Matthew Ogden very kindly compiled a summary report of their year abroad so you can share in their experiences:

In 2017 the three lucky recipients of the awards were Callum Pethick, Craig Smith and Aoife Aitken respectively.  We will hopefully be updating you in the near future on their progress during their gap years.
