Foodbank


The cost of living crisis means it’s a double edge sword this year. West Dunbartonshire Community Foodshare will need more donations than ever before because the need will be higher than ever before… but the donations and contributions may be lower as many more people find themselves in worrying times financially. The Foodbank Committee, led by some S6 volunteers, won’t be able to fundraise as much, as we have in previous years, which might impact what we generate for the Toybank Appeal… but we’ll certainly try our best to help. They are in the process of securing prizes and will be selling raffle tickets in due course.


If you are able to help, regardless of how little, please consider donating food (non-perishable items), toiletries, baby products, a selection box, a toy / game or a small monetary contribution. As always, we collect brand new toys for 0-17yr olds. Every single donation will help and will hopefully make Christmas time a bit more enjoyable for many families living in poverty (some of whom attend CHS.)


Please feel free to leave donations at the back of Room D1.11 or hand to me directly. I’ll also arrange for the trolley to be placed in the foyer each day. Please do not wrap any gifts (donations of wrapping paper welcome though.) I’m hoping to drop donations off to WDCF week commencing 5th December (date to be confirmed.) Assemblies have been scheduled for week commencing 14th November. We will also communicate what we are doing with parents / guardians.


Should anyone wish more details, I’ve attached a list of food items, gift ideas etc. If you require further info, please just email me.


Parents' Evenings


As a parent, you can make an enormous difference to your child's chances of success in school, at home and in their later life. Working in partnership with your child's school can help them to succeed. Pupil reports and parents' consultation evenings help to make sure you are kept up-to-date on your child's progress.


Parents' evenings are a chance to discuss how your children are doing in class and in school generally with their teachers. They can help decide how best to work together to support your children's achievement.


Important Dates

S4 Parents' Evening: Tuesday 15 November

S5/6 Parents' Evening: Tuesday 22 November

Mental Health

There are times when we all feel the strain. As parents and carers, there are ways we can support children and young people to give them the best chance to stay mentally healthy.

Some children and young people have enjoyed being off school, while others will have really struggled – with the coronavirus outbreak keeping them at home and away from friends. Others may be coming to terms with family problems, loss or changes to their living situation.

With nationwide and local restrictions being regularly reviewed, they may also have to deal with self-isolating because of an outbreak in school or another period of school closure, or have worries about getting or passing on the virus. It's still uncertain what further changes we all may face.

Feelings like these will gradually ease for most, but there are always steps you can take to support them emotionally and help them cope with problems they face.

There's support available if you feel you or they need it.

Parent Council News 2022

The Parent Council is a group of parents selected by all parents in the school to represent their views. Parent Councils have an important role to play in school improvement by ensuring that the parental perspective is represented and taken into account.

The Parent Council helps to create an environment where all parents know that their views matter, and where they feel confident and comfortable putting them forward. They work on behalf of all parents to discuss educational matters that are of importance to all. They do not get involved in individual matters relating to children or staff in the school.
