Girls take part in national active fitness events
All S1-S3 girls at Clyde Valley High School recently took part in the Sport Scotland Active Girls day.
This is a national event run annually to encourage more girls to be physically active.
The girls enjoyed taking part in netball, fitness and dance and the sessions were organised and run by seniors Lucy Dunning, Corey Owens and Lee Cocozza.
The school held its first Leaders Festival recently where 157 pupils from across the school’s partnership primaries attended.
The entire event was planned and delivered by the school’s enthusiastic and extremely professional sports leaders.
This is the first stage of the new CVHS Leadership Academy and was designed to develop team work skills, confidence and resilience in order for pupils to be better equipped to deliver sporting activity within their own school.
S3 pupils Amy Barlow, Natasha Carroll and Erin Forsyth attended the Information Day for the Dragons’ Lair competition run by North Lanarkshire Council.
Dragons’ Lair is an initiative aimed at encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in North Lanarkshire’s young people.
It seeks to introduce them to the world of business, its importance to the economy and as a possible career option they may not have considered. In June, senior pupils at Clyde Valley High School were given the opportunity to take part in the annual Italian Exchange Programme with their partner school, the Istituto SismondiPacinotti in Pescia, Italy.
This time around, all the Scottish youngsters met their Italian twins for the first time when they collected them from the Bentley Hotel in Motherwell.
The Italian pupils visited the Clyde Valley Campus and, after a tour of the school, the Italians experienced a typical Scottish pupil’s timetable.
They also spent some time in the home economics department where staff and pupils provided some Scottish delicacies to try.
Both the Irn Bru and haggis received a mixed response!
The Italian group spent their weekend taking in the sights of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
They also spent time visiting Callander, the Trossachs and New Lanark respectively.
