Trinity News: March 11th 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you are all well and that you have not been affected, yet again, by COVID.   Unfortunately a few of our families and staff are now on their second stint of managing the virus and we wish them all a speedy recovery.  

We had such a great time celebrating World Book Day in school last week.  Watching Trinity Together in the playground, working with each other to make words was another sign that we are ‘getting back to normal’.  

Red Nose Day : Friday March 18th

We are handing over the running of our Red Nose Day event to our learners who are certainly not short of ideas. 

Pupils in P1 will be making dinosaur biscuits in school to sell.

P2 will work as a class to sell items – donations of books, toys and baking would be much appreciated.  

From P3 – P7 if your child has offered to run a stall / game / event they are responsible for organising, running and tidying it up!   If they can provide their own float that is helpful.   

If your child is baking please can ingredients be written down as we have a few children with allergies.

Prices will be 10p, 20p or 50p and children are welcome to bring money to spend.   

On Friday 18th March everyone is encouraged to come to school ‘looking funny’!   This may mean clothes inside out, worn upside down, with silly hairstyles etc. 

Our first batch of Red Noses have sold out.  Many thanks to P3 who have taken on this responsibility.  More have been ordered and should be with us next week – watch out for a text.

All money raised on the 18th will go towards Red Nose Day.

‘Red Nose Day is coming. And whatever you do, no matter how small, you can help people live free from poverty, violence and discrimination. This includes funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border. Because you have the power to change lives.

Rainbow School – message from P3

P3 are leading on Rainbow School just now. As well as Red Nose Day, March 18th is also Global Recycling Day and we would like to celebrate this with your help.

Cash for Kids are working with Textile Recycling International and are looking to recycle clothing that might have ended up going into landfill.  For every tonne collected, Cash for Kids will receive £400.

Please send in:·

  • Wearable clothing, including sportswear, suits, dresses, jackets, scarves, baby clothes,
  • handbags, belts, hats, paired shoes

Please do not send:

· Uniforms with logos (including school uniforms)

· Wet or soiled clothes

· Household items eg curtains, towels, blankets, cushions

· Books

P3 will be ready to collect bags of items from you in the front and back playgrounds from 8:30am every day next week starting on Monday March 14th.

Thank you for your help.


We had a very encouraging Trinity Parent Staff Association meeting this week that saw us discussing clubs that have restarted and planning for future in person events.  For families in P1 and P2 it is possible that you have still to be part of an event run by the TPSA.   They do a fabulous job of organising fundraising opportunities – the proceeds of which benefit the school whilst also being good fun.

Wed April 6th 6.00pm – 6.40pm : Easter event for P1 and P2.  Please look out for information regarding ticket sales

Sat May 21st 11.00am – 1.00pm : the return of the May Fair.  Offers of help will be much needed and much appreciated along with donations of books, baking, toys etc.   More information will follow shortly from the TPSA but in the meantime please put the date in your diary.

Have a good weekend.

Best wishes
