Three former Kilgraston pupils were thrilled recently to receive their Gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award at Buckingham Palace.
Emily Rourke (former Deputy Head Girl) Lara Melville (former Deputy Head Girl) and Catriona Roberts, who all left the school in 2018 and completed their DofE at Kilgraston, travelled to the capital together for the award ceremony on Saturday 18 May 2019.
Held on a beautifully warm day, the girls thoroughly enjoyed their big adventure.

The Dof’s Awards are all about gaining new skills, pushing yourself physically, helping others and exploring new territories. At the same time, gathering new friendships, experiences and memories.

“For the past seven decades, the DofE charity (Reg. no. 1072490) has inspired and transformed the lives of millions of young people from all walks of life. From volunteering to physical activities, life skills to expeditions, achieving a DofE Award is a passport to a brighter future, valued by employers and universities,” says the official Duke of Edinburgh’s Award website.

A huge achievement, well done girls.
