Other service activities include the Charities Committee which is available to Form VI pupils and takes place on Tuesday lunchtimes. It effects real change through national and local charities such as Macmillan Cancer Research, Alzheimer’s Scotland and the Alloa Foodbank. The recent Sponsored Walk organised by the Committee raised in excess of £60,000 for good causes around the world. Also available are our various Community Service clubs which pupils from Form I to VI can join. These represent a number of projects that support people and places in Dollar’s local and wider community including computer training for the elderly, riding for the disabled and more.
Service activities are a great way for pupils to broaden their minds, gain a more varied experience than that which they’d normally get in the classroom and learn how to commit themselves to a cause.
