Italy Snow Sports Trip 2015

35 pupils along with 6 teaching staff from CGS travelled to the Aosta Valley in the February break for some snow sports.  It was a scary start for the group with the bus breaking down on the motorway on our way to the airport … it was February 13th after all.  But after a quick change of bus it was all go again!  The group flew into Milan Malpensa airport and was driven to the Aosta Valley in the North of Italy where they spent the week.  5 days were spent skiing and snowboarding in the skiing resort of Pila, being instructed by the Italian Ski School under glorious sunny weather most days and powder snow.  The evenings were spent eating pasta, pizza and ice cream!  As well as ten pin bowling, ice skating and shopping.  There was a few injuries on the mountain but that didn’t stop the smiles and everyone had a very enjoyable week and have returned to Scotland very competent on the slopes – some much better than the teachers!

CGS Pupil get taken away by the Police

Following a very successful series of workshops run by Police Scotland aimed at helping pupils to understand better the role of the police, a group of about 16 pupils from S3 to S6 visited Jackton Police Academy near East Kilbride.  The trip was very successful, pupils enjoying a warm welcome from all staff at Jackton, particularly Stuart Warboys who gave them a very comprehensive experience of all aspects of police work from drugs investigation to riot equipment, physical training and a detailed talk on how to join the police force.

CGS would like to thank PC Collins for organising the programme and the visit, PCs Dalgleish, McIndewar and Nutt for their support during the programme and the trip and Chief Inspector Baillie as well as Chief Superintendent Swann for enabling the resources.  Thanks also to Mrs A Millar for helping to arrange the visit.

Getting it right for every child

The Scottish Government is currently consulting on detailed guidance that supports parts of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. This Act is a new law that will give children, young people and their families extra support and will encourage everyone to talk about children's wellbeing using the same words. The consultation on the guidance is due to run until 1 May. It is mainly aimed at the people who support your child - including parents' organisations - but individual parents are welcome to get involved if they wish. You can take part in the consultation via this link: http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2015/02/1851

There is also a leaflet on the Scottish Government's website with more information: http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0046/00469648.pdf
