Girls take part in na­tional ac­tive fit­ness events

Wishaw Press - - CLYDE VALLEY HIGH - Clyde Val­ley High

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.
