Dear P7 and P6 Parents and Carers

One more sleep to the performance of Colour Our World!  I hope you are looking forward to what, I am sure, will be a great evening.  We have got everything crossed that there will be no rain and no wind but given we can’t control the weather please do dress to be sitting outdoors in whatever comes our way.   The show will go on!  

Tues 24th – tickets will be issued.   Please note it is one ticket per child – the ticket will indicate how many people it will admit.  Any mistakes simply give us a call or drop us an email – admin@trinity-pri.edin.sch.uk

Wed 25th – stage, lights and sound system being set up in the fenced area at the back of the school from 8.00am.

P7 and P6 pupils are asked to arrive at school by 6.00pm.

The gates to the ‘festival’ will open for ticket holders from 6.10pm.  Entrance will be from the park.   Our P6 front of house helpers will be on hand to meet and greet and sell refreshments and souvenirs.   Payment is by cash only – look out for the payment stations where you will swap cash for tokens.  The tokens can then be used at the stalls.  

There will also be an opportunity to have a look at the fabulous personal projects completed by our P7 learners.   Toilets will be available in the main school building. 

The show will begin at 7.00pm

This is the first (and might be the only!)  time that we have put on our P7 show outdoors so please do bear with us if things are not quite as smooth as we would hope.   The staff and children have put huge amounts of effort into the evening and I am so incredibly proud of them all.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Best wishes

School Picnic to Aberdour 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

We are in the process of organising the school picnic to Aberdour on Wed June 22nd.  This year we are hoping that all our P1 – P7 pupils will take part.  P7 have missed the experience in both P5 and P6 and are very keen to have a ‘final’ Trinity beach picnic. 

The cost of the day will be £7 per pupil.   This cost is for travel by private coach.  As always we ask that everyone either makes a contribution, pays the total amount or pays a wee bit more depending on their own circumstances.   Payment can be paid through Parentpay or, if you prefer, by sending money to school in a named envelope.

Coaches have been booked with a seat available for all pupils and accompanying staff.  There will also be some seats available for adult helpers.  Please use the form below to let us know if you are able to help, if you need a seat on the coach if possible or if you are able to offer a space in a car.   It is definitely a case of the more adults the better so please do come along if you can.

Further information will be issued nearer the time.

Many thanks

Trinity News: 18th May

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you are all well and that your children are enjoying the summer term in school.  Things are certainly  busy at Trinity.  Over the next few days we have Sports Day, the May Fair, our P7 show (supported by P6), nursery visits and parents / carers evening and afternoon for P1 – P3.   It is certainly feeling like business as usual once again. 

Please see below for reminders about Sports Day and the Fair plus news about Trinity’s Got Talent!

Sports Day : Fri May 20th – start time approx. 9.20am in Victoria Park.   ALL very welcome

The children will take part in six events in house teams.  Siblings will be in the same team so if you are able to come along you only need to follow one team around the course

Our theme is Coast to Coast with each event representing part of a journey to travel from the UK coast, around the world and back.  

Children should come to school dressed for sports day.  Please note that rain will not put us off so dress for the weather!

Fruit will be provided for snack time but children must bring their own named water bottle

At the end of the six events children will gather in their own classes to watch the P7 house relays

It is likely that sports day will finish about 11.15am / 11.30am.  At that time they may be dismissed providing they are with an adult – please make sure your child’s class teacher knows they are with you – or they will return to school until the normal finishing time on Friday. 

Pupils from P5 – P7 must have returned a signed paper slip indicating they have permission to leave early  –  this was sent home last week.

May Fair : Saturday May 21st from 11.00am – 1.00pm

We have a fabulous assortment of filled jars ready for the fair.  Further jars are welcome right up to the day.

Please do come along and support our school on Saturday morning.   Donations of baking, toys, books, DVDs etc can be handed in to school this week.

Trinity’s Got Talent

Watching our P7s rehearse for their show confirms that Trinity certainly does have Talent.   The House Captains will be in touch soon with further information and application forms but in the meantime acts can start to practice. Auditions will take place during June with the final happening on Thursday June 30th.

Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Sports Day on Friday and the Fair on Saturday.

Best wishes

P6 & 7 Show Info

Dear P6 Parents and Carers

As you are aware the P7 show ‘Colour Our World’ is taking place on Wed May 25th at 7.00pm.  Gates will open from 6.10pm for the audience.

Our P6 learners provide incredible support for the show by producing tickets, organising refreshments, making souvenirs etc as well as being the choir on the evening.  It is a great opportunity for them to be a part of this in preparation for their own P7 show.

I am really hoping that all P6 learners will be able to come along on the evening.   We are in the process of allocating jobs – entrance gate, selling refreshments, taking people to seats – and rehearsing the songs.  T shirts for P6 have been designed and are currently being printed.  On the evening these should be worn along with black leggings or trousers.   P6 should arrive at school for 6.00pm if possible.

P6 parents and carers are very welcome to purchase tickets through Parentpay.  It has always been a great evening in the past and I have no doubt that this year will be the same. 

Thank you for your support

P7 Parents/Carers – Show Info

Dear P7 pupils, parents and carers,

Re. ‘Colour Our World’ – costume requests

It is hoped that P7 pupils will be able to bring in some costume items from home. Each child has been issued with a paper copy of what they need – please check in school bags. They have been encouraged to ask relatives etc. to help out!

Please do let us know as soon as possible if there are items that you cannot provide. All items should be in school by Wednesday 18th May, at the latest, to allow for costume checks. In previous years, pupils have brought in a small pull along ‘cabin’ type case to store their items in.

Thank you for your support.

  • Black leggings/ shorts/ bottoms
  • 1 black top
  • 1 white top
  • Plain black or white trainers/ plimsolls if possible for dances
  • Plain bright coloured top (red, orange, purple, blue, green, yellow, pink)
  • Splash of tartan e.g. tartan ribbon, sash, kilt, tie, hat, scarf

Bring a jar on Friday 13th and dress down!

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope your week is going well.  Our school Fair is taking place on Saturday May 21st.  It will be so great to have this happen again.  One of the stalls is the jar stall – always very popular!   Families are asked to fill a jar with small items eg toys, hair bobbles, sweets, soap etc and hand it into school.  At the fair the jars go on the stall to be bought.  Much sought after jars are those with ribbon or decorations although we do always find that every jar sells.  This is a real money raiser so your support is much appreciated.

On Friday May 13th children are welcome to wear what they like to school and bring along a filled jar or jars.   If you won’t manage to do this for Friday then children can dress down and bring the jar later – we trust you!

Many thanks

Jacqueline Scott
