We often have school pupils wanting to do voluntary work with us and the children always enjoy having some young people around to play with too.
Recently we have had 2 pupils with us. One of them is Ewan Brese and this is what he had to say about his experience:
“I am a 3rd year pupil at Fortrose Academy. I am currently undertaking my Duke of Edinburgh bronze award which requires 3 months of voluntary work for an hour a week. For this I chose to go to Culbokie CALA of which I attended when I was in primary school myself. Personally I enjoyed going because it was active, I got to play football and basketball whilst entertaining others which was very enjoyable, I also got to catch up on what primary school was like now a days and how it has changed. The staff were very supportive and helpful and I definitely recommend for anyone who needs to do voluntary work or complete an award to go to Culbokie CALA.”
