Christmas at Trinity

Dear Parents and Carers

Please find below the plans for the festive season at Trinity. The recent Winter Fair was a great success and we are very grateful to the TPSA who have donated £1000 towards costs of Star Time, parties, refreshments etc. As a result of this the cost to parents for the various activities is only £2.00. This can be paid either through parentpay or by sending in cash to the school office. Having been to Matilda in the theatre in April, this Christmas we have decided not to go out of school for a theatre visit but to hire in Silent Disco equipment! Many of you will have ‘witnessed’ a silent disco group around the streets of Edinburgh or may have taken part yourself! We are hoping that all the children will find it great fun.

The following is a letter from our Trinity Talks team (a group of pupils who represent the views of children)
Dear Parents / Carers
As usual we are setting up a reverse advent calendar with the aim of giving rather than receiving. This year we will have a ‘donation station’ where your child / children is asked to bring a small cash donation or some sort of ‘Christmas’ chocolate / sweets (tube of Smarties, chocolate tree decoration, chocolate Santa etc). The donations will all go to Bethany’s Edinburgh Winter Care Shelter who provide homeless people with a bed for the night, dinner and breakfast. The donation station will be open from Monday 2nd of December until the Christmas break.
We hope you are able to donate (every little bit counts!)
Many thanks
The Trinity Talks Team

Many thanks to the Trinity Talks Team for organising this. Our Christmas Art morning took place on Thursday and the hall is now looking fabulous with banners depicting the 1950s song ‘Christmas Alphabet’. Christmas ‘jumpers’ were out in force – check below for the next date to wear them!
I hope that the final weeks of this term go well for everyone. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or concerns.
