Legal Studies
On Wednesday 21 October, Clydebank High School welcomed Street Law (from the Law Society of Scotland). With a little help from Google Meet, pupils from the S6 Legal Studies class worked virtually with law students from the University of Glasgow to discuss not only what the law is but crucially, ‘what the law ought to be’.

Mr Hamilton who teaches the Legal Studies class said, “we are very grateful that CHS is one of the schools in Scotland chosen to participate in Street Law for 2020/21 – the opportunity for pupils is an important one”. Mia Moohan (S6 pupil) said, “I am really enjoying participating in Street Law, it is interesting to look at real cases and form our own opinions”.

Heritage Ambassadors
The Heritage Ambassador scheme at CHS was officially launched on Friday 18 September, when the senior pupils involved for 2020/21 participated in a local history tour. As part of the tour they visited various locations relevant to the history of Clydebank, including the memorial to the Clydebank Blitz and the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard.

The role of a CHS Heritage Ambassador is to promote and preserve the heritage of Clydebank High School and its connections with the local/national community. In previous years this has included supporting the work of organisations such as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, Poppy Scotland, Old CHS and Erskine Hospital for Veterans (to name a few).

Senior Leadership Team
The head boy/girl and house captains have been awarded a role of responsibility and trust. They will manage the house teams, undertake ambassadorial duties, be aspiring role models, represent the voice of the pupils and much more.

Cashless System
Clydebank High School will be operating a cashless system at Clydebank High School. You will no longer be able to use cash in the canteen. The cash machines will be out of action as of Friday, 11th September. If you wish to purchase anything from the canteen you must sign up to parentpay.

The School shop is now set up. Can you please put the link on the school website. We will now longer be taking cash at the school office for these items. All payments must be paid via parentpay.

Wearing Face Covering
Based on the latest scientific evidence and advice from Public Health Scotland and the World Health Organisation, the Scottish Government has confirmed that from Monday, 31 August, all secondary pupils must wear face coverings when:

  • Moving around the school in corridors and communal areas where physical distancing is difficult to maintain.
  • On school and public transport
  • Entering shops.

Schools will assist pupils by providing clear instructions on how to safely put on, remove and store face coverings while in school.

Entering School Building
S1-S3 pupils will enter and leave the school building via Green Street (next to the Bowling Club) and Shelley Drive. Pupils in S4-S6 will enter and leave via Janetta Street. Weather permitting, we advise that pupils remain outside in the fresh air. In cases of inclement weather, pupils have an allocated area of the school. Pupils are welcome to our breakfast club in the school canteen from 8.15 am in the morning if they choose.

Please see the list of Frequently Asked Questions which will answer some of the queries you may have about your child/children's return to school and ELCCs. You can view the Frequently Asked Questions on the Council's website.

Young Environmentalist Competition
A BIG congratulations to our S2 pupils Gary Coulter, Georgia Smith, Billy Lyndsay and Julie Carlisle who have just won the National level of the Young Environmentalist Competition courtesy of Dumbarton Rotary Club who encouraged and forwarded their entry. Based on managing plastic, their entry was thoughtful, practical and demonstrated a commitment to the local environment. We are very proud of them and look forward to formally acknowledging this achievement.

New Physical Education Arrangements
Whilst lockdown brought a number of challenges for us, many of us were able to enjoy greater time spent outdoors, and changes to the way we exercise.

As our schools return, the advice from the Scottish Government and Sports Scotland is that PE activities should take place outside. We would ask that when your child has PE on their timetable that they come to school that day dressed in clothing that they can do PE in. Should they wish to change into other clothes after PE, they will be able to do so.

The weather in Scotland will at times make PE outside difficult, so we would ask that your child also comes to school with a rain jacket and a change of clothes. Should they get wet whilst doing PE, there will be facilities made available for them to change. If coming to school with a rain jacket will be a problem, we’d ask you to contact your child’s Pastoral Care teacher to discuss the matter.

This is quite a change for us in our approach to PE, and we will keep you up to date with any changes to this as we are advised by Scottish Government and Sports Scotland.

In addition pupils should bring roll on deodorants to school as opposed to spray deodorants.
