Great response to our first Foodbank Collection.
For those who forgot, you can still bring along donations Friday and Monday.
Thank you for your support of this valuable service.
I am writing to you in my capacity as a Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP).
On the 15th and 16th of October 2016 I will be attending the 61st National Sitting of the Scottish Youth Parliament. During the weekend we have a jam packed agenda from committee meetings, to discussions with the Scottish Government. One main part of the weekend in member’s motions. This is an opportunity for other MSYPs to bring forward motions that are important to their constituents. If the motion is agreed by the membership, then it becomes part of the parliaments policy.
I am elected to represent the young people of Clydesdale.
During the weekend I will be voting on motions and will be voting on behalf of my constituents. I have created a survey to allow me to do this. I would be very grateful if this could be published on your website and distributed throughout your school and to other appropriate colleague’s to allow me to gather as many views as possible.

We are excited to be hosting our first Business Breakfast on Friday morning. With over 20 organisations joining us, local and national, we will discuss how we can work together to help our young people move into positive destinations when they leave school, and build a successful and fulfilling career.
Look out for the Journalism Club’s report on the event.
The National 5 Travel and Tourism Skills for Work class went on a lovely visit to Edinburgh Zoo on Monday 3rd October 2016.
The pupils successfully gathered a wealth of information about tourism trends and tourist impacts at the Zoo.
They also learned about the Zoo’s attractions and marketing strategies as well as completing a career profile for an employee of the Zoo.
Pupils have reflected on this and understand the skills, qualities and qualifications required to work at Edinburgh Zoo.
The visit inspired some pupils so much that we may even have some future Zoo Keepers at Carluke High School!
A group of senior pupils are starting a Carluke High School Food Bank.
Once a month a collection of foodstuffs will be made and passed on to the Clydesdale Food Bank for local distribution.
Tthere is a great need for this locally so this is an opportunity for the pupils and staff of Carluke High to help in our community.
Our first collection will take place on Thursday 6th October.
Please put a reminder in your phone to bring foods.
Senior pupils will be collecting at the front doors of the school in the morning before Registration and at lunchtime in ‘the street’.
Each House will have a separate box which will be labelled.
The Foodbank will take a variety of tins etc. but no fresh produce or perishable goods.
Some examples: UHT milk, cereal, instant noodles, coffee, diluting juice, shower gel and adult sized toothbrushes.
baked beans, tinned peas, tinned potatoes, tinned spaghetti, tinned cold meat, tinned fruit, diluting juice, gents' deodorant, shower gel.
LET’S ALL MAKE AN EFFORT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE FOOD BANK.
After much deliberation, the Computing Science department have finally decided the outcome of the micro:bit Competition 2016. The winner is Ethan Smith in 2H who designed an extremely innovative game using his micro:bit. He was awarded his prize of a Raspberry Pi by Mr. Smith at the S2 Assembly.
Well done Ethan!
On the 20th of September S5 and 6 Geography pupils went on an excursion to several sites in Glasgow.
The purpose of this trip was to gather information which will be used for National 5 and Higher Assignments.
All pupils worked in groups to gather information including traffic counts, questionnaires and environmental quality surveys.
We visited Eaglesham, Newton Mearns, Buchanan Street and Glasgow Fort.
All pupils will now be able to use this experience to produce an Assignment which is worth a significant percentage of their overall grade.
