| Espacios Increibles IDL project
The group today attended Strathclyde University for the final and presented their design to a full lecture theatre of pupils, staff and judges…speaking in SPANISH!!
5 schools were involved in the IDL project (CHS, St Thomas Aquinas Sec, St Peter the Apostle, St Matthew's Academy and St Margaret Mary's Sec) working in partnership with SCILT and the Department of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde. Pupils were tasked with working in a group to design and pitch an 'Amazing Space' for a Latin American location (Bolivia or Chile), using their Spanish and Design & Technology skills. Our pupils were outstanding in terms of their efforts and commitment throughout the project, their idea was creative and unique, their Spanish was fantastic during the presentation and their conduct at the final today was exemplary! We are extremely proud of everyone involved!

| S1 YPI Final
On Wednesday we were blown away by the talent, creativity and courage of our S1 pupils presenting on behalf of their charities for the Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI). It was uplifting to see how so many had engaged in learning about their charities, worked as a team to create a presentation and then shown courage and commitment in standing in front of an audience to share their work with us. Well done to everyone who participated at any stage of the YPI programme.
Congratulations to our S1 winners from Ms MacColl's CHS360 class! Although all teams were incredibly talented and passionate, 1.4 were voted by all the judges. Pupils had engaged with their charity,
were clear about the need within the Clydebank area
and gave ideas about where the £3000 would be spent.

Pupils are hoping to use their new knowledge to drive forward a project within CHS in the near future.
Careers Advice at CHS
There are two careers advisers from Skills Development Scotland based within school: Lynsey
Mitchell & Nicole Grant. They support young people to develop their career management skills and
make informed decisions throughout every stage of their school life and beyond.
Advisers are in school all days apart from Wednesdays. Every year group receives a group
engagement and S4-S6 pupils can access one to one appointments.
These can be arranged by
speaking to the advisers or through pastoral care. In S3, all pupils will receive a subject choice
interview prior to making choices for S4. In addition to this, workshops are run for Senior Phase
pupils throughout the year.
These support pupils with job searching, CVs, college applications and
personal statements. School careers advisers attend S3-S6 parents’ evenings and appointments can
be booked via the online booking system.
My World of Work is a web based resource used by Skills Development Scotland and school staff to
support career planning.
There are a range of tools available for individuals at every stage of their
