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.

He then demonstrated two outstanding dishes 'Pan seared loin of venison, raw spiced and caramelised cauliflower, oats, nuts and brambles' followed by 'Chocolate fondant pudding with strawberry compote'. The pupils were given the chance to taste the food made by the award-winning chef with many of them commenting that it was the best food they had ever tasted. This experience will live with our pupils forever and has given many of them a clear direction for their career.
