CLYDEBANK schools are full of amazing things.

And just to prove it, youngsters of all ages converged on Clydebank Town Hall last week for the 2017 Amazing Things awards, recognising learning projects in primaries, secondaries and early learning centres.

From healthy eating and science, to outdoor adventures and improving contact with parents, the town hall was full of displays as judges inspected each.

Clydebank High won the award for parental engagement with their Join Us for a Fakeaway partnership.

Lucky Little Stars in Clydebank took first place in the early years category for their enchanted engineering project.

Youngsters learned from construction firm Morgan Sindall about the job opportunities in life as part of regeneration of the community.

Other prizes included Linnvale Primary coming third in the primary category with their Ready, Steady Tabakh and St Peter the Apostle High in third place for encouraging girls into engineering.

St Joseph’s Primary had two projects to show off to judges, including one to make sure parents engaged with what their children were learning.

Everything is now digital, linking up pupil work in the school to let parents see it at home.

Demilee Andrew, 11, in P7, said: “It’s showing parents you’re achieving and what you’re doing in school.”

Class teacher Sharon Quinn explained another project brought together P6 and 7 pupils with those in P1 and 2 who have autism.

She said: “It allows them to be part of mainstream schooling – and it would not be the same without them.

"St Joseph’s is a nurturing school and these girls are a god-send. Children respond so much better to peers than teachers.”

The work has included a friendship cafe to learn social and other skills and youngsters embraced it enthusiastically.

Levenvale Primary took the overall gong for their family residential experience project.

Haldane Primary took first place in the primary school category for their learning in nature scheme.
