I think quoting (with permission) from letters from the girls give the best indication of how they settled into life at Dollar Academy and as well as working very hard to get excellent results were happy and fulfilled.
" the school opened up many possibilities which otherwise would not have been possible"
" it was a rewarding experience"
" I was able to complete my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award with support from the School"
"Felt the support from the Trust was instrumental in my admission to university"
" I want to keep in touch with the Trust and hope I can be of help in the future"
