We know that our young people are continuing to push through the challenges brought on by the pandemic and as a result their efforts deserve to be recognised and celebrated.
If you think your child deserves to be recognised for a personal or academic achievement complete the following form. This should be in by 12pm Thursday and will be announced the following day.
The next prize draw will take place Wednesday 31st March. However the weekly celebration videos will be posted on Mondays.
Remote Learning Online learning will begin from 9am on Monday, via Google classrooms and our
campus@wdc platform and schools will contact you with details. As with the
previous closure of schools last year, anyone who requires support during this time
or access to equipment should contact their Headteacher at the school/ELCC by
telephone or email.
To support you and
your child in terms of maintaining good healthy routines during this current
lockdown period, we will be delivering online learning as per the school timetable.
Young people can check in with their teachers as per their own daily timetable
schedules. Classes will begin at 9.00am and conclude at 3.50pm on a Monday and
Tuesday and 3.00pm on a Wednesday-Friday. As well as curricular learning, there
will also be opportunities for breaks and the chance to make good use of any free
time available. This should continue to be a key focus for all young people to
support positive health and wellbeing during these challenging times. A good
healthy routine will support all young people over these next few weeks and
beyond as necessary and I would ask for your full support in ensuring that your
child works only to the school day timescale.

Education & Skills Committee
On Tuesday 12 January, two senior pupils (Amelia Dalziel & Mia Moohan) from the Legal Studies class were invited to participate in a focus group for the Education & Skills Committee at the Scottish Parliament. The focus group, conducted via Zoom, involved pupils from across Scotland contributing their thoughts and opinions about education in Scotland as impacted by Covid-19.
Mr Hamilton commented that "it is important young peoples' voices are heard in the current situation, and this opportunity from the Scottish Parliament was a positive one". Mia, speaking after the meeting, said that "being involved in the focus group was a great experience and a real chance for us to voice opinions and discuss the current situation". And Amelia said "being involved in the focus group was an amazing opportunity to not only share our own opinions, but also to hear about the experiences of others".

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.
