Young peo­ple hailed in watch­dog re­port

Evening Express (City Final) - - Scotland Today -

YOUNG peo­ple liv­ing at a city board­ing school solved their own prob­lems once cliques de­vel­oped, in­spec­tors said. Mon­i­tors from the Care In­spec­torate watch­dog vis­ited Aberdeen City Mu­sic School’s halls of res­i­dence in Riverview Drive, Dyce, on Fe­bru­ary 15 and have now pub­lished their in­spec­tion re­port. Up to 40 young peo­ple study at the school and also at­tend Dyce Academy. “In the main, young peo­ple en­joyed each other’s com­pany though they felt that the ‘fam­ily feel’ of board­ing had changed this year, with more ‘cliques’ than pre­vi­ously,” said the re­port. It added: “Dur­ing the in­spec­tion the young peo­ple or­gan­ised a meet­ing to re­solve this, agreed a pos­i­tive way for­ward and dis­played their agree­ment on a com­mu­nal wall.

“This is cer­tainly to their credit.” In­spec­tors gave the halls a ‘good’ rat­ing – the third-best of six pos­si­ble rat­ings.
