Drop Everything and Read
CHS library organised an authority wide Drop Everything and Read event for all schools in West Dunbartonshire to celebrate and round up Book Week Scotland. All pupils and staff members participated by stopping whatever they were doing at 10am and reading for 15 minutes. In Technical tools tumbled, in PE apparatus was abandoned, in Home Economics cooking ceased, in Music drums were deserted and in Chemistry formulae forsaken, all in favour of a little light reading. Our pupils and staff greatly enjoyed the chance to sit quietly and read material of their choice, with some pleading to have a whole day instead of just 15 minutes! Thank you to everyone who helped with or took part in all CHS Library activities to celebrate books, reading, and libraries. We hope you all had as much fun as we did!

The pictures were then made into posters which were displayed throughout the school and pupils were encouraged to enter a competition to identify each member of staff and their reading material. The winner of the competition was Poppy Grant of 1C1 with runners up Connor Somerville and Alexander Wick of 2C2.

WW1 Battlefields Experience 2015
Between the 2nd May and the 7th May, pupils in S2 and S3 took part in the journey of a lifetime when they visited the World War One battlefields of Belgium & France. Over the course of several days they visited memorials and cemeteries at locations such as Ypres, the Somme, Passchendaele and Festubert. Each day, pupils were guided by an expert historian who taught them a great deal about World War One and the impact it had on the soldiers involved. The whole experience was incredibly emotional as well as educational. On the final evening of the visit, the pupils also held their own private ceremony of remembrance at Buffs Road Cemetery, during which Alistair Bacchetti played a lament on the violin, Kimberley Allen sang a song in tribute to the soldiers of the Great War and Hannah Pert & Hannah Riding recited poems they had each written during the visit.

Lusitania Remembrance
On the 7th May, it will be exactly 100 years since the sinking of the Clydebank built RMS Lusitania. On that day, pupils and staff, joined by special guests will lay a wreath at Queens Quay (the location where the ship was constructed and launched from in 1906) at approx. 3.15pm. To make this event as special as possible, we would be delighted if any parents or members of the local community were able to join us in paying their respects also. For more information, follow the History Dept on Twitter @chs_history or contact Mr Hamilton.

New School Senior-Phase Information
New information on the performance of leavers from S4-S6 has been published on Parentzone Scotland today. This information aims to give parents more information about schools alongside other resources such as school websites and handbooks. The Scottish Government have issued a press release outlining the changes. The new information can be found on all secondary schools in Scotland by visiting Parentzone Scotland.

Attainment at CHS
The SQA results analysis process has now changed. “Insight”, “National Dashboard” and “Virtual Comparator” are 3 of the latest phrases to enter into the vocabulary of teaching staff across Scotland. So, what are they ? I want to start by trying to define these terms because I am really keen that you as parents/carers should understand them, both for this year and for the future.
