Pupils have been working in PE lessons to develop their cardio respiratory endurance, navigate between controls on a map and judge their running pace between controls. In Health and Food Technology the S1’s have been learning how to fuel their bodies before sport and replenish energy stores after the competition. Each pupil has prepared food for themselves to eat before and after the event. In Geography, the pupils have been learning how to read a map and use the features of the map to get to the controls in the safest and fastest route.
All of our S1’s are excited to compete in one of our 3 challenging courses. Photos will be published after the event. However, you can follow some of the action on the day via the PE Dept twitter feed at @chrystonpe
There is a welcome evening for S1 parents, families and children on Thursday 3 October from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Parents will be able to visit classrooms with their children and speak to teachers and pupils about what their children have been learning. Pupils representing the various clubs and committees in the school will be in the social area. We look forward to welcoming you to Chryston High School.
Please see S1 Welcome Evening 2019 for more information and S1 Dates for your Diary.
We have many new and exciting projects happening throughout the year but 2 of our main updates that we would like to give you more information on are the launch of The Parent’s Portal and the CHS Supporters 500 Club. The link below is a letter giving a brief summary of both of these but further info on how to sign up can be found in The Parent’s Portal Menu at the top of the page.
We would like to thank all our school community for their continued support and hope that session 2019-20 brings all our young people and their families lots of joy and success.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you our fantastic new 500 Club.
Our new club will be run by Chryston High School Supporters (CHSS), a new and exciting fund raising and community building branch of our parent forum in partnership with our Parent Council.
The aim of our club is to raise some funds for our school on a monthly basis whilst giving you the chance to have a flutter and win a cash prize.
When you join we will allocate you a number which costs £2 per month. You can have up to five numbers per household. So £4 a month for two numbers and so on.
