BLISS Charity - Non School Uniform
Congratulation to pupils and staff at Clydebank High for raising a fantastic £1015 for the charity BLISS. Bliss is a charity for premature and sick babies and also supports families who have unfortunately suffered loss.

Once again, the pupils have done the school proud!

Health and Wellbeing
Pupils from S6 have volunteered to help promote Health and Wellbeing across the school. Learning about Health and Wellbeing in school ensures that young people develop the knowledge and understanding and skills, they need for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and in the future. Pupils will will now be involved in delivering year group assemblies and assist staff in the delivery of HWB in the school. They will very soon be working with S1 in the delivery of substance abuse.
