Tinto Hill Walk

Calder­head High School has al­ways been keen to sup­port the work of St Andrew’s Hospice and reg­u­larly car­ries out fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for the char­ity.

On Wed­nes­day, May 23, our S1 pupils par­tic­i­pated in the Tinto Hill Chal­lenge, and climbed the hill in glo­ri­ous sun­shine.

The chal­lenge is open to La­nark­shire schools who want to sup­port St Andrew’s Hospice and our pupils and staff were de­lighted to take part. Well done every­one.

Mr Burgess

Staff and pupils at Calder­head High School were very sad to mark the loss of Mr Roy Burgess who re­cently passed away.

Mr Burgess worked at Calder­head High School for al­most 40 years first as prin­ci­pal teacher of chem­istry, then as as­sis­tant head teacher be­fore tak­ing up the post of de­pute head teacher of se­nior school.

For those of us lucky enough to have known and worked with him he will be re­mem­bered as be­ing a great chemist, an out­stand­ing teacher, a loyal friend and men­tor, a racon­teur, a fish­er­man and above all else a true gentle­man.

For the many pupils for­tu­nate enough to have been guided un­der his tute­lage he will be re­mem­bered with great fond­ness for his com­pas­sion, his sense of hu­mour, his loy­alty and his un­fal­ter­ing commitment to ev­ery pupil at Calder­head High School.

On be­half of all pupils and col­leagues past and present of Calder­head High School we would like to ex­press our sin­cere sym­pa­thy to Mr Burgess’ fam­ily.

Trip to M&Ds

S2 pupils had a fan­tas­tic time on their re­ward day trip to M&Ds theme park in Mother­well on Thurs­day May 24.

The pupils en­joyed the many at­trac­tions in the won­der­ful sun­shine.
