S1 CLUBS Basketball

Basketball is a popular sport in S1. Everyone is welcome and included. You don’t need experience to play as there are teachers and seniors to help you become better at the sport. It is a great opportunity to play home and away games and also make new friends.

The Basketball Club meets every Wednesday from 3pm till 3.45pm.  Miss Carey from PE takes the club.

S1 CLUBS Netball

Our captain of the S1 school netball team is Kiera Boyce.  She thinks everyone is improving well. This paid off when we played our first 2 games a couple of weeks ago. Netball is a great sport and it is great fun and very enjoyable. It is an opportunity to make new friends and represent the school.

The club meets every Tuesday 4pm until 5pm.  Everyone is very friendly.  Come along and join us.  Mrs Walker from PE, Mrs Harvey from Chemistry and Miss Smith from Business/ICT run the Netball Club

S1 Girls’ Football Update

The Girl’s Football Team did very well in their first tournament last Wednesday at St Ambrose and managed to go undefeated, drawing in both games they played ( 0-0 and 1-1) and automatically winning the third due to a forfeit. Many of the team were playing up in the senior contest, so this was a fantastic result. All the girls are an absolute credit to Chryston High School. 

The Team:  Eve Bryson, Aimee Green, Codi Thompson, Jessica Cook, Monique Spalding, Kayleigh Brady, Hayley Westwood and Billie Jackson

Coaches:  Scott Williamson and Connor Johnston in S6.

As this was my first tournament with the squad, I am  delighted and impressed by how well the girls did and how well they represented the school.  I’m looking forward to many more.

The Fitness Suite

In Chryston High School, we have a wonderful fitness suit.  The Girls’ Fitness Club is on Friday after school from 02.55 to 03.55.  The other fitness clubs are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at lunchtime.  The times are  great if you are normally at home and not active.  If you are in school it’s great to do something active at lunchtime since it can get a little boring waiting for your next class.  I think if you have the time you should definitely go since it could be a wonderful experience for you and your friends. You can  improve your fitness and meet some new friends.  The people who run the fitness club are the seniors who are very helpful and nice. Go and have fun.

Chryston High Ski Trip 2016

This week will see 29 students from S1 to S6 get involved the annual Chryston High School Ski trip.

Staff and pupils will depart from Glasgow on Saturday 20th February and head off to the Austrian mountains for a week of on piste action.  Landing in Salzburg, they will then make their way to the mountain resort of Aximer Lizum (just above Innsbruck).

It is here they will spend a week doing a combination of skiing and snowboarding in different groups based on ability and experience.

They will receive guidance from highly skilled instructors throughout the day with activities planned for each night, including a trip to Innsbruck.

Word from the slopes is that conditions are favourable at the moment and will continue to be for the duration of the trip.

Let’s hope this year’s group have as much fun as last year’s budding Bode Millers!
