Whole School Activities
Pupils are involved in all aspects of school life: taking part in School Shows, the Choral Shield, school excursions such as The Belgium/France trip, the English Department’s visit to London, Blackpool Trip, Outward Bound, M&Ds Rewards Trip and visits to the Scottish Parliament.
In addition, our pupils participate in a number of sporting events throughout the school year such as the County Athletics Championships, Dalziel Sports Day representing their houses in shot put, javelin, 100m, 200m and the relay. Our pupils are also involved in the Ski/Snowboard club, which takes place in the Glasgow Ski Centre every Monday/Thursday. One of our S5 boys had a magnificent haul of medals at the Sports Day – 1 gold, three silver and one bronze. This meant he achieved 2nd place in the Sports Champion table.
Our junior pupils were in fine voice cheering on their houses during the annual Junior Quiz. Greig House were this year’s winners, which produced several smiles from our Greig pupils and teachers in HID.
Our pupils are also involved in whole school initiatives to promote a positive and inclusive ethos. We have representatives in the Dalziel Stands Up To Bullying group and our pupils have been involved in charity events and walks.
Our department and pupils are committed to raising Deaf Awareness within the school where they visit assemblies to present to all year groups about the issues that are important to them.Teachers of the Deaf deliver Deaf Awareness sessions to all S1 pupils and to new staff/supply staff and probationers. This year we expanded this and one of our S6 pupils delivered Deaf Awareness presentations to all year groups at their assemblies.
The Christmas Dances are also very popular where pupils from S1-S6 have a wonderful time with their peers as they Ceilidh dance the night away.
