Dear Parents and Carers
Wow, November already! Whilst these last months have not been without their challenges time does seem to be flying by. It was great to see everyone back in school last week and to end the week with a fun Halloween morning. The creativity from the children and the staff in producing such fabulous costumes is testament to one of our values.
Christmas Card – thank you so much to those of you who have returned Christmas card order forms. This will be our main fundraising event this term so all orders are much appreciated. The final date for orders is Thursday Nov 5th. The company have assured us that all orders (cards, mugs, bags, tea towels) will be dispatched by the end of November.
Dress for the weather – please make sure your child is dressed to be outdoors at times. Part of our risk assessment in keeping school safe is to have children outdoors for learning and to keep the building ventilated. This will mean that, as we see a drop in temperature, we will all need to be dressed warmly, both for indoors and out. Whilst school uniform is still very much a part of our school ethos, in the current times, children are able to wear what is most appropriate for the weather.
Starting school : August 2021 – This year all enrolment is to be carried out online. Unfortunately we will be unable to offer an Open Day at the current time but our prospective children will be able to watch a virtual tour of our school. If your child is due to start school next year, or you have neighbours who are, please do direct them to the school website and the Starting School Aug 2021 tab which will be available from next week. If there are any problems please contact school on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Poppy Day – Unfortunately our usual practice of children taking responsibility for the collecting of donations and giving out of poppies will not be possible. However children are still able to support this charity, if you wish. Any donations should be brought into school this week and given to the class teacher. Poppies will then be given back out to those who have donated.
Book Amnesty / Clearing out – if you are having a clear out before Christmas and find any Trinity books please do send them back into school. We are also always delighted to receive donations of any good condition novels that children have read and no longer wish to keep. Please be assured that any books received into school will be set aside for a period of ‘quarantining’ before they are used by children in school.
Safety of everyone – I know that all staff at Trinity have really welcomed schools being open since August and are working hard to be able to provide motivating and enjoyable learning experiences for our children. As I write this I can hear one of our P3 classes outside my window searching for examples of right angles with their learning partners. Our learners do not seem anxious or worried and are enjoying being with their friends, learning and having fun. Their resilience is fabulous to see as they accept and understand that whilst things are not as we would like, we are getting through this and, most importantly, we can still have fun. To this end please look out for information about Christmas@Trinity later in the week.
Keeping our school open, and as free from COVID as possible, is our main aim. Positive cases will have a significant impact on a class, year group or beyond. We need everyone to play their part in keeping us all safe and cannot afford to become complacent in any way. Please note the following to help us :
- If entering the playground to collect a P1 or P2 child, only one adult is allowed. Face coverings must be worn, if able to do so. Please stand 2m apart.
- Remember 2m distancing when waiting outside school, either in the park or on Newhaven Road
- Do not park, even for a short time, on the zig zag or yellow lines outside school
- Ensure your child arrives at school at the correct time and is picked up at the correct time. Being late on either occasion has an impact on staff and the children
This week will see the children taking part in another Building Resilience assembly. The theme for this term is ‘Be Kind to Others’ – hopefully not too difficult, no cost involved and definitely hugely beneficial to us all! Please take a moment to talk to your children about it.
I wish everyone at Trinity a really successful and happy second term.
Dear Parents and Carers
It is the last day of term one and watching all our Trinity Learners arriving at school this morning looking relaxed, full of smiles and chatting to their friends is testament to all the effort put in by all our school community over the past weeks. I cannot thank you enough.
Please see below for a few bits of information :
+ve case over the holidays
I so hope that none of our children test positive for Coronavirus over the holiday period. If they do, please contact City of Edinburgh council on 0131 200 2000. School will be informed and any close contacts identified as required.
Children are very welcome to dress up for Halloween on Friday October 30th. We will have some adapted Halloween activities for the children to enjoy.
A hot lunch option is now available on Parentpay. As we are unable to use our dining hall due to COVID – 19 restrictions lunches will continue to be delivered to classrooms and children will continue to eat in the classroom. We are ever hopeful there will be no escaping veggie balls or cheesy pasta squahed into classroom carpets!
Front gate : P2
From Tues Oct 27th we are aiming to introduce an in and out gate system for the P2 pick up time. It is hoped that this will help with distancing. Please remember if collecting your P1 or P2 child we ask that only one adult enters the playground, wears a face covering if able to do so, adheres to a 2m distance from other adults and leaves the playground immediately they have collected their child. These measure are for the safety of everyone – thank you.
Goodbye and Good Luck
We have a few families and Felicity Martin leaving Trinity at this time and we wish them all the very best in the future. New Zealand, India, Spain, Dunfermline and Ferryhill Primary are all very lucky to get such fabulous people joining their communities. They will all be a great miss.
INSET day : Monday Oct 26th
School is closed to pupils on Monday 26th Oct. Children return for term two on Tuesday October 27th.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back on the 27th for term two and all the fun it will bring. Christmas@Trinity is not being thwarted by a virus!
I hope everyone has an enjoyable October break.
Please see below for a message from the house captains (shared at assembly this morning)
Dear Trinity Learners, Parents and Carers
We are the House Captains. We want to tell you about the guide dogs we are hoping to sponsor. Each house will get one guide dog. It costs about £4 per month to sponsor each dog so if you can, please bring in any loose change on a Friday. There will be dog money banks that you can ‘feed’ with your coins. If you can do this we would be very grateful. Any amount helps.
Thank you from the House Captains
