Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing this as the sun is shining and I can hear our fabulous Trinity learners outside playing. Normality continues as we’ve already had a falling out and a falling over!
The contributions to our Trinity Food Bank have been incredible – thank you so much. Please do pop in at any point today or tomorrow if a bag of food would help in some small way.
Learning from home :
Children will come home today with their learning from home jotter containing all the information, passwords etc that they will need. Class teachers are available from 3.00pm this afternoon (Thurs March 19th) if you wish to pop in to your child’s class to chat over what has been prepared. However please do not worry if you can’t manage this as we are hoping that everything is clearly explained. Teachers, as you will see from the jotter, will be available to provide support, albeit electronically, as long as schools remain closed.
If your child is absent and you are able to come into school to collect their learning from home then please do pop in. This will be incredibly helpful. All uncollected packs will be delivered by school staff over the next few days.
Friday March 20th :
Tomorrow will be a dress down day so children are welcome to wear what they would like. We are looking forward to seeing our P7s perform a couple of dances from their postponed P7 show and to hear our choir sing. This will all take place outside.
Lost property :
As always we have a huge amount of lost property. This will be laid out in the shelter area for the end of the day. Please take any items that you can make use of.
Staffing update :
As you are aware we were expecting Kirsty Martin, DHT, to be leaving us at the end of term to take up the post of Acting HT at Currie Primary School. The current HT at Currie had planned a career break to travel but as I am sure you will understand, this has been postponed. This means that Kirsty will remain at Trinity until circumstances change. Whilst we are really disappointed for Kirsty we are delighted for ourselves as she is a key member of our school community. Holding onto her for a bit longer is great news.
The sense of community in our school over the past days has been overwhelming and I am so incredibly lucky to be part of it. The message we are giving the children is things are being postponed not cancelled. This is simply a ‘new’ normal and we will go back to the ‘old’ normal. We are however reminding them that this doesn’t extend to learning! That is continuing, just in a slightly different way.
Remember, at Trinity we are resilient, we do persevere and the sense of kindness is everywhere.
Please take care.
