After consultation with our pupils we have decided there will be no Halloween disco this year. Our only available date to run the disco was 31st October and our pupils’ preference for tomorrow night is to get involved in their own guising events. We will be running a Halloween disco in the future and we will ensure this does not take place on Halloween itself. S1 have recently been involved in a disco that was run by our Captains at the start of the month which was hugely successful and are now looking forward to a Christmas party which will be held on 11 December.
Chryston Cluster has entered the Creating Engineer Challenge for the past two years. The challenge is organised by the Glasgow Science Festival.

We think our S1 pupils are looking for fellow pupils to help them.
S1 pupils are hosting a Welcome Evening for their parents and families on Thursday 9th of November. Information was emailed to parents last week. If you haven’t received an email, and would like to receive correspondence via email, please pass your current email address onto the office staff.

My first 3 weeks at Chryston have been great! My favourite subject so far is probably Music. I am learning the keyboard and I love it. My second favourite subject is Science. I have made a lot of new friends and I like all the teachers. I go to the library at lunch time which is really good. I am really looking forward to my future at Chryston High School. I hope you enjoyed reading about it!
