We were very priviledged today to have Joanna Millan visit us.
Joanna was deported age 10 months from Berlin with her mother and sent to a camp in Terezín (Theresienstadt) Ghetto north of Prague, her father was taken from the streets of Berlin and sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau where he was murdered on arrival in 1943. In 1944, when Joanna was 18 months old, her mother contracted tuberculosis due to the conditions in the camp, leaving her orphaned and alone in the camp.
On 3rd May 1945, the Red Cross took over control of the camp and Joanna was liberated by the Soviets six days later.
On 15th August along with 299 other surviving orphans, Joanna was flown to England and made her home there.
You can read more of her story here.
We want to thank Joanna for being here today, especially in the snowy conditions, and for the way in which she presented her story.
We all have learned so much from this experience and it will remain with us.
For some young people and parents, leaving school and moving on to the next phase in life’s journey can be a nervous and apprehensive time, full of unknowns. Some young people are clear about their future journey post-school and are motivated to achieve… others may be not so sure.
To help and support our pupils moving on, we have created a guide called “The Employment Activities Plan” to reassure and inform parents about the wide range of post-school opportunities available in Clydesdale and across South Lanarkshire.
The guide can be found on the website Home page in the menu on the left hand side or click here.
Support and guidance for pupils leaving Carluke High School
This guide of post-school employment activities and opportunities is specifically for Carluke High School pupils and identifies key post-school pathways and providers available for Carluke High, Clydesdale and across South Lanarkshire. The guide can help our young people and their parents make informed choices for the future.
What the guide does
• The guide provides key messages about providers and organisations and information about the specific target/client group, referral process and, where appropriate, financial support.
• The Employment Activities Plan is designed to re-assure parents and young people, so they can make informed, realistic choices for their son and daughters about the range of available options leading to positive destinations.
If there is a nervousness and apprehension about post-school journey, the school is in a better position to help young people and parents make informed choices for the future.
Pupil Support teachers and the school’s careers advisers can be contacted for further advice and guidance by contacting the school office on 01555 773680 and asking to speak to your child’s Pupil Support teacher or our career advisers Helen Sutton and Phyllis McCann.

Pi Day at Carluke High School
Carluke High School celebrated Pi day on Tuesday March 14th 2017. At lunchtime a competition was held by Mrs Tarbard in the Mathematics Department, to see which student could memorise the most digits of Pi. Competition was fierce and even prior to the event there was already talk of students having learnt Pi to around sixty decimal places. The results were simply incredible.
Lucy Jones 2K was winner of the competition, winning a Metal Puzzle Box for memorising 74 digits of pi. Gabriella Blades 4D won the second prize by memorising 49 and Niamh Murphy 2K won the third by memorising 39 digits.
Every entrant was also rewarded with delicious and scrumptious pies.
Girls dominated the competition by getting top three spots this year, c'mon boys!
Congratulations to Eilidh Cunningham (2B),who took part in the ‘South Lanarkshire Instrumental Music Service Showcase’ in the Town House, Hamilton.

Eilidh performed with confidence and professionalism and we are all so proud of her achievement!
