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

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

Trinity News : 9th May 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

As we start week three of the summer term I would just like to say a few words about what was, for me, a fabulous end to week two.  Our school felt truly like our school on Friday as we welcomed so many parents and  careers to our open morning.  There was such a lovely buzz around the whole building, with our learners so proud to share what they are learning.   I don’t think the chickens have ever had so many visitors!    Thank you so much for coming along and for the many words of support and encouragement.  

Yesterday also saw another great morning with families working together with staff to tidy up and improve our playground and secret garden.   Once again a huge thanks to those of you who came along.  We were even joined by one of our new P1 pupils.

The next few weeks are busy so please do keep checking with your children and with Twitter and email.

Trinity News : May 4th 2022

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you are all well and were able to enjoy the long weekend.  The term ahead promises to be very busy and we will try to ensure that everyone knows what’s going on!   Please do ask your children and keep checking email, texts, school website and Twitter accounts.

Fri May 6th : we are so looking forward to opening our doors properly to parents and carers on Friday morning.  Please do come along from 9.00am – 10.00am or from 11.00am – 12.00 noon, walk around and see our school in action.   Tea and coffee will be available in the foyer.  A small donation towards the cost of this is much appreciated.

Sun May 8th : Playground tidy from 9.30am – 12.30pm.   Please use the form below to let us know if you are able or not to come along on Sunday.  We want to make sure we’ve got enough pastries!  

P1 – P3 Parents / Carers meetings : thank you to those who replied regarding the preferred format for these meetings.  The majority of parents and carers asked for a face to face meeting.  These will take place on Thursday 26th May 4.00pm – 6.30pm and on Friday 27th May 1.00pm – 3.30pm.  Please look out for an email regarding booking a time to meet, in school, with your child’s teacher.  Appointments will be for ten minutes.  If you are unable to attend please do get in touch and a phone call will be arranged.

Tuck shop : tuck shop will now take place fortnightly, in the front playground, starting on Thursday May 5th.   P2, our Rainbow School leaders, have now taken responsibility for this.

Bikes / Scooters in school : please be aware that there are bike racks in the front playground, the middle playground and in the back playground.  We are finding that the back playground racks are overflowing whilst the others are quite empty.

Food waste : it has been great to see a reduction in the amount of food waste in school.   However there is a concern over Friday packed lunches as there are often several lunches not collected.  These end up in the bin.  This week there are 181 lunches ordered – the usual number is about 90 of which not all are eaten.  Please do check on parentpay and cancel if you do not wish a lunch for your child on a Friday.  I’m sure you will agree with me that we don’t want to have food thrown out.

Thank you again for all your support and I hope to see you on Friday (please be patient with us as we try to put names to faces, especially with no requirement for face coverings)

Benmore Thanks

Dear P7 Learners, (Parents and Carers)

I just wanted to send a brief email to say how immensely proud I was of you all at Benmore last week.   The support you provided for each other, the determination you showed when tackling unfamiliar and, sometimes, challenging situations and your infectious enthusiasm was fantastic.   It was a privilege to spend the time with you all.   You were a credit to yourselves, your families and to our school.   I hope that you all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and made memories to last a lifetime.   I would also like to say thanks to the staff who supported you – Ms Chalmers, Ms Watt, Mr McKay, Ms Tawake, Mr Lewis, Mr Taylor and Mrs Armstrong.   I know that they too were full of praise for the determination, kindness and respect that you all showed.   For those parents and carers able to attend it is hoped that a slideshow of photos will be shown at our Open Morning on Friday May 6th.

P7, as we head into the final weeks of your time at Trinity Primary please keep true to our values and continue to go above and beyond.   There are several experiences planned and I hope that you make the most of them all.  I am so looking forward to our first ‘in person’ P7 show since 2019 and have every confidence that you will make it a show to remember.

See you on Wednesday

Best wishes

Trinity Choir – Glee Competition

The choir has been working very hard to prepare for their virtual Glee competition. This year they are still unable to attend in person. They have recorded 2 songs and they have been submitted to the judges. However, this year part of the vote will be made up by the public. If you would like to support them please click on the link below and watch the Trinity (Edin) choir performance.
