S2 Hunterston Trip
Recently, our S2 Chemistry Elective class, 2H1C, went on a informative visit to Hunterston Power Station. We have been investigating renewable energy sources in class and so we were excited to be given this amazing opportunity. We were shown around the station and we had to take safety precautions such as wearing hard hats. ID passes were also issued to gain access through alarmed doors. We were all very well behaved. Mrs McDermid said, “I am extremely proud of your behaviour and knowledge. You are a credit to Clydebank High School! ” We found out that there were lots of examples of all the sciences used in the process of producing nuclear energy. Mr Hunter stated, “I thought it was a fabulous example of Interdisciplinary Science. Physics was the nuclear fission reaction, chemistry was the chemical elements involved in the process and biology was the harmful effects it had on the environment.” The engineers were very impressed with the knowledge we had previously obtained during lessons in class and thought we asked some extremely good questions. All our questions were answered in detail. All in all we had a ball and the sun shone too!

Clydebank High's Christmas Cracker story
Before Christmas, eight Clydebank High pupils worked closely with their dedicated teachers to raise money and gather gifts for Clydebank Woman’s Refuge. They decided to choose the woman’s refuge because when they called the refuge centre they found out that it was hard to buy the Christmas presents at this time of year.

The refuge is run by Clydebank Woman’s Aid and its aim is to provide a safe place for woman, young people and children who have been domestically abused and want to escape. Also when reviewing the donations they had received, most of them were toys and toiletries which would be beneficial toward the woman’s refuge.

The eight pupils threw themselves eagerly into their fundraising. They held a bake sale, which raised around £100. The bake sale was held by Lisa Taylor, Megan Stewart, Emma Nicolson and Kirsty Mallon. There were also four girls, Gemma Gibney, Rachel McDermid, Aimee Melvin and Danielle Barbour, who organised a fundraising event, where they held activities such as; an egg and spoon race and a raffle. This event raised around £200.

One worker in the woman’s refuge, Sharon stated, “The donations were beneficial toward the woman’s refuge because the children living in the refuge may have had to leave behind most of their belongings before arriving to the refuge. All the donations were given out at the annual Christmas party.”

Clydebank High School has been in partnership with a German school named “Soegal” over the past few years. When our friends in Germany learned about our fantastic cause they jumped at the chance to help, sending donations for the fantastic cause!
