‘Thank you so very much, once again, for the very enjoyable and educational few hours our school had at the WDC. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the activities you allowed them to take part in and were talking about it all the way back in the minibus. The enthusiasm of [WDC staff] made for another excellent afternoon. A really great experience, thank you.’ Buckie High School
