Trinity News: 17th December 2021

Dear Parents and Carers

What a fabulous Christmas@Trinity time we have enjoyed.  The incredible assortment of pyjamas in school yesterday could not help bring a smile to my face and watching the reaction of our learners to our ‘special’ visitor in the afternoon was magical.  I always reflect on how incredibly lucky we are to do a job where we get to share the excitement of Christmas that only children feel.   Hopefully you will not find it too exhausting managing the excitement for another week!

COVID update : at the moment we are unsure what next term will bring.  Rumours are flying about bubbles, remote learning etc but they remain as rumours and until such times as guidance changes learning at Trinity will carry on in the same way.

  • Staggered start and end times will stay
  • Only essential meetings will be able to take place in school
  • Adults entering the playground are asked to wear face coverings unless exempt
  • Staff remain at a 2m distance from each other
  • Any child showing symptoms must remain at home and a PCR test should be booked

If any changes happen over the festive period communication will be sent out to parents and carers during the week beginning Jan 3rd 2022.   Please be assured that whatever comes our way we will continue to show perseverance and creativity!  We’re getting very good at adapting.  Thank you for your support.    

School lunches : from Jan 2022 school lunches will now be available free of charge for P1 – P5 pupils.   Lunches must be ordered in advance using parentpay.  We are hopeful that we will be able to reintroduce some year groups back into the dining hall as the term progresses. This will however be dependent on COVID guidance.  

Swimming : the decision has been made to continue with swimming for P5 learners and to postpone swimming lessons for P4.  They will be given the opportunity at a later date.

In some ways in seems like only yesterday that we were welcoming in 2021 hopeful that we were going into a year that would see us finally return to normal.  Unfortunately that is not YET the case and we still find ourselves living with restrictions and uncertainty.   Whilst our resilience is certainly being tested I am always encouraged by that of our children who continue to take things in their stride.  They are a credit to yourselves and to our school.

Over the festive period I hope that are able to spend time with those closest to you (and that you are also able to find a little bit of time for yourself)

Merry Christmas and a very Happy and, most importantly, Healthy 2022 

Best wishes
