There was a packed audience of parents, staff, community friends and distinguished guests for the annual Christmas Concert. Mrs Anne Traynor, Faculty Leader of Expressive Arts, produced a very varied programme of entertainment and community carol singing. The talented group of pipers and drummers set the tone for the evening with an entertaining set. The drummers in particular, wowed the audience with their skills and their unusual light display.

The Assembly Hall was once again decked out in glittering Christmas decorations as the senior Dance Leaders held their first ever Christmas Ceilidh. The students really let their hair down as they twirled and jigged their way through some popular Scottish Ceilidh classics. After a short break where they feasted on a stunning buffet, the pupils then danced the night away to some disco favourites.

There was a real festive feel around the school the last two weeks as pupils from all year groups enjoyed the annual Christmas disco and our Christmas jumper day. Members of the sixth year transformed the assembly hall into a bright and colourful venue for the disco, with decorations draped to produce a wonderful atmosphere. Everyone had a great night as they danced to popular Christmas classics.
The Christmas jumper day was a huge success and pupils across the entire campus took part. The money raised by the Christmas jumper day was for school funds however, S6 pupils used the festivities to kick start their own fundraising activities for this year’s chosen charities: Beatson Cancer Care and the Les Hoey MBE Dream Maker Foundation. S6 pupils had worked tirelessly to bake cakes and tasty Christmas-themed treats to sell in a bake sale. The event was popular and raised approximately £270, a fantastic start to a year-long fundraising effort.
Clare Broadhurst, S6 captain at Clyde Valley High School has been offered the fantastic opportunity of an internship with Marion Fellowes MP for Motherwell and Wishaw. Starting in February next year, Clare will have the exciting experience of participating first hand in the political process by working in the constituency office of Marion Fellowes, shadowing the MP in her constituency work and surgeries, and also visiting the Scottish Parliament with Clare Adamson MSP. Clare has a keen interest in politics and stood as a candidate in a recent Scottish Youth Parliament by-election. She is currently studying Higher Politics and hopes to pursue this subject at university in the future.
