Johnstone High school Science Club took part in the Big Bang Scotland event on Friday 14th June. This is a science based event designed to inspire and enthuse young people in engineering, science and maths.

David Storrar (S3), Euan Fairfull (S2), Alexander Curran (S2) and Harvey Brown (S1) were our science team who competed in a hands on science competition. This team were also responsible for hosting a showcase stall on Forensic science. The judges were very impressed with the enthusiasm of all of our pupils on their stall.

 On Thursday 20th June, S3 pupils took part in a survival challenge ‘I’m a Johnstone High School pupil, Get me Outta Here’.  Pupils were put through their paces by completing different survival tasks to help them gain skills in learning, life and work.

Feedback from pupils was very positive ‘ it was fun’, ‘enjoyable day’, ‘interesting’ and ‘I feel more confident in trying new things.’

Thank you to all the staff involved for their hard work to bring about this successful event.

On Thursday 6th June, Senior girls from Johnstone High School were invited to Glasgow City chambers to meet ladies who work everyday in cutting edge science research.  In this lovely venue, the girls listened to eight different speakers, from diverse topics such as renewable energies to breakthroughs in looking at fatal lung disease.  The girls were then given the opportunity to meet science researchers informally to discuss possible career paths and make links with Universities.

The following report was written by S2 pupil, Cara Hendriks

On Tuesday 21st of May English teacher, Miss Herd, accompanied by RE Teacher, Mr. Peters, took the S2 Debate Club on a school trip to Paisley Sheriff court.

We had a guide allocated to us, telling us about the different roles of the court and how it works. It was fascinating. We were given a tour of all the different courts and then we were allowed to sit in and watch a real case!

Here we were able to listen to each lawyer debating their case and ask questions of the defendant. The Sheriff was a dominant force within the court and was very much in control.

This trip was very interesting and educational and has helped us to enhance our debating skills. We look forward to the future, when perhaps it will be us arguing our case in court!
