Pupils at Dumbarton Academy enjoyed a number of exciting activities and trips before the summer holidays began to celebrate the end of the academic year.

One lucky group went on a fantastic activities holiday to Lake Garda, Verona and Venice in Italy, where they had a ball taking in the sites, visiting amusement park Gardaland, kayaking on the lake, taking a trip to colourful Murano - renowned for its long tradition of glass-making, and devouring their fair share of gelato.

Locally, other pupils enjoyed trips to a variety of venues around the west of Scotland, including M&Ds, Snowfactor, Inflata Nation, Ryze trampoline park, ScotKart (Karting and Lazertag), paintballing, Treezone and a cruise on Loch Lomond.

Some even decided to put their problem-solving skills to the test as they attempted to beat the clock and figure their way out at the escape room in Glasgow.

Pupils also had the chance to make the most of the good weather by cycling to Kelvingrove and Balloch, while others went hillwalking and had the opportunity to work at Castle Recording Studio.

In school, pupils took part in arts and crafts, pampering sessions, gardening, crochet and tapas cooking sessions.

For those keen to take part in something a bit more sporty - football, softball and table tennis were also on offer, as well as a FIFA gaming tournament, along with other video and tabletop games. The school also offered pupils access to a film club and a Harry Potter marathon run.
