Pupils took on the role of a digital detective and seen how they can use their digital skills to solve a crime.

Visit to Scottish Parliament
On the 15th November, pupils from the CHS Law & Debating Society were invited to attend a ‘Language in Parliament’ event at the Scottish Parliament. The day consisted of various workshops and a tour of the parliament building. Pupils learned about the processes which allow the Scottish Parliament to function and met with a range of staff from government advisors to speech-writers.

Both Mr Hamilton (History Dept) and Mrs Ryan (English Dept) who accompanied the pupils commented that attending the ‘Language in Parliament’ event was “very worthwhile” with “pupils representing Clydebank High School wonderfully”. More information about the CHS Law & Debating Society is also available on Twitter (@CHS_LDSociety).

Ian Forsyth visits Clydebank High School
On the 6th November, Ian Forsyth, a veteran of the Second World War visited Clydebank High School to meet with the S6 Heritage Ambassadors. A wireless operator with the 15th/19th King's Royal Hussars in the Royal Armoured Corps, Mr Forsyth was one of the first to arrive at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp as it was being liberated - the memories of which remain with him to this very day.

These memories which Mr Forsyth spoke of during his visit have been captured on video by the Heritage Ambassadors as part of a living-history project; memories which are both poignant and harrowing…

“In war you witness first-hand the depths to which humanity can sink. I was thunderstruck by what I saw – it was the first time that I realised exactly why we were fighting the war. On that day, I saw something which I did not believe could have been true [talking about Bergen-Belsen].”

“When we passed nearby villages after we left Bergen-Belsen, we tried to find out more about how this could be allowed to happen, but people said they knew nothing, which was impossible.”

“That day changed me forever. I will never forget what happened there and the sights that I saw still make me weep.”

Cyber Live Lesson
Pupils from S2 Computing Games Design class stepped into the shoes of a cyber criminal on Thursday 3 October. In the live lesson, pupils stepped into the shoes of a cyber security consultant to help a national pizza restaurant test their website's security. Along with Clydebank High School's Digital Ambassadors pupils successfully worked together to detect and analyse real-life security issues, and understand how these could be exploited by cyber criminals.

Our young ethical hackers are looking forward to the Cyber Skills Live Lesson 2 - How to solve a 'murder' - Digital Forensics which will take place Friday 29 November.

Health and Wellbeing
We want all children and young people to be able to learn about health and wellbeing to ensure they acquire skills to live healthy, happy lives. Health and wellbeing isn't a single subject or class, but is organised into six areas: mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing; planning for choices and changes; physical education, physical activity and sport; food and health; substance misuse; and relationships, sexual health and parenthood. Health and wellbeing is also about ensuring that pupils are able to make the most of their educational opportunities regardless of their background or financial circumstances and through promotion of attendance at school. We have provided a range of resources to ensure children feel happy, safe, included and respected in their learning environment.

Heritage Ambassadors (Local History)
On Friday 4 October, some of the CHS Heritage Ambassadors participated in a local history tour of Clydebank. Visiting various places within the town, they considered the role Clydebank played as a former industrial powerhouse within the United Kingdom, as well as the devastating impact of the Blitz during World War Two, 13 & 14 March 1941. Places visited included the Dalnottar & Radnor Park Blitz Memorials and various streets in Dalmuir which still bear the scars of the aerial bombardment. During the tour, the Heritage Ambassadors also responded to an emergency situation when a member of the local community collapsed. Their prompt action and calm response made all the difference to what was an emergency situation. The entire CHS community is incredibly proud and grateful to each and every one of them.
