Trinity News: 6th February 2023

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you had an enjoyable weekend – for those who support Scottish rugby what a game!   

It has been great seeing so many of you at our House Coffee Mornings and Learning Chats.   Feedback has been extremely positive with parents and carers commenting on how much they welcomed having the chance to chat with their child about what they are learning, seeing what they are achieving and hearing about Rainbow School.   We will be holding our second parents/carers’ evening and afternoon on Thurs 9th March and Fri 10th March.  Please look out for booking information later in the week.  


Well done to our P4 learners who are taking action against illegal and unsafe stopping and parking on the zig zag lines outside school.  If you do need to bring a vehicle to school please park where it is safe to do so.

Fruity Friday

We continue to encourage the eating of fruit and vegetables at all times but particularly on a Friday.  The winning class each week receives the Fruity Friday fruit bowl for the following week.  If you are willing to sponsor a bowl for a week please send £10 into the school office.  Sponsorship is much appreciated.


Many thanks to everyone who bought their child’s Christmas card design. The amazing total of £1256 was raised for school funds.

Playground update 

We are continuously looking at how to improve the playground experience.  The role of our PSAs is to support play as opposed to supervision.  To this end we have purchased and collected resources based on what our learners have asked for – skipping ropes, toy cars, building blocks, chalk, drawing materials etc.  A recent survey of the children gives the playground an average 4 star out of 5 rating, 95% say they have friends to play with and 92% say that everyone is kind to each other.  Whilst the results are good our aim is for a five star rating and 100%!

If you have any no longer used large paint brushes, roller trays and rollers please do hand in as ‘painting’ the playground with water is much enjoyed! 


Congratulations to Carly Pattinson on the birth of Polly.  Both mum and daughter are doing well and we are looking forward to meeting them soon.

Amazing Asia

In the summer term our whole school focus will be looking at Amazing Asia!  We are really keen for any input from members of our school community to help us to learn about and celebrate this fabulous continent – food, geography, languages, dance, music etc.  If you have any suggestions or offers PLEASE do get in touch by emailing direct to

Dear Parents and Carers

As we come to the end of our second school term a heartfelt thank you to everyone for the support that you give to your children and to our school.  Together we do make a difference to them and it is a privilege to see them grow in confidence and continue to learn to show kindness and respect to others.

We are delighted to welcome Pablo to the post of janitor at Trinity following the move of Harry Lawrie to Holy Cross Primary.  Pablo has already shown his DIY skills and we are looking forward to him being very much a part of the Trinity team.

Megan Browning will be joining Trinity in January to teach P4C.   From January Claire Campbell will move to a support for learning post until she begins her maternity leave.  We will be wishing Carly Pattinson all the very best when she heads off on maternity leave in January and will be excited to meet Baby Pattinson in due course.

Trinity News : Monday 5th December 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend.  

As I’m sure you are aware the festive season is well underway at Trinity following a great start last week.  Our Christmas Art Day saw everyone working together in houses to make banners based on Christmas picture books and corridor boards are now displaying Happy New Year in 22 different languages.    The Christmas Light Switch On was a great success with the playground absolutely packed.  It was so good to see so many of you there.  A huge thanks to the TPSA for all their work in making this such a lovely evening.  As you know all the money raised at these events goes to school and is used to benefit everyone.

Thank you too for the donations of preloved Christmas clothing and for gifts for our reverse advent calendar.   We have already received over 40 items.  Donations for both are still very welcome.

This week P2 will be performing their ‘To Infinity and Beyond’ show, P7 are heading into town to enjoy Santa Land, Christmas lunch will be served on Thursday (please remember if you haven’t ordered for your child then they must bring a packed lunch) and Friday sees us in Victoria Park for the Santa Fun Run at 9.15am and then in school for Christmas Star Time at 11.00am.  Parents and carers are very welcome.  Friday will also see our final class receiving their flu vaccination. 

Christmas Star Time :

One of the activities proving very popular is Sock Snowmen.  Any donations of scraps of material,  coloured socks, buttons would be much appreciated.  Please hand into the school office. 

Children and staff absence

There are certainly many different types of bugs doing the rounds at the moment from chicken pox to sore throats to sickness and colds.  If your child is unwell please do not send them into school until they are better.   As we manage staff absence thank you for your understanding if your child’s class is taught either by a supply teacher or a different member of Trinity staff.  We really do try to avoid too many changes if at all possible.

I hope the week ahead proves to be a good one for us all.

Best wishes

P1 Nativity 2022

Dear P1 Parents and Carers

I do apologise for the change of date for the P1 Nativity and hope that this doesn’t cause any inconvenience.   P1M and P1J will now share ‘Baarmy Bethlehem’ on Mon 12th and P1S and P1K on Tues 13th December at 9.15am.  

We have given a lot of consideration as to how best to approach the Nativity to allow it to fit with the play pedagogy happening in P1, to ensure that all our learners, irrespective of their needs are included, to avoid lots of time rehearsing and to allow as many family members to come along as may wish to do so.  To this end we have continued with a film approach and on the morning of the 12th and 13th you are invited to the premiere in the main hall.  Parents, carers, grannies, grandads etc are all very welcome.  

How will the premiere work?

Our children will sit with their families or their buddies to watch.

Children are invited to dress for a special occasion.  (An early introduction to an Oscars or BAAFTA ceremony!)

Refreshments will be available 

Children will share some songs

We really do hope that this will be a memorable event that everyone will enjoy.

Thank you for your support

Best wishes
