Dear Pupils, Parents and Carers

A very warm welcome back after the summer holidays.  For those of you new to Trinity I hope your child settles quickly and thoroughly enjoys learning whilst having fun at our school.   Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.

Having pride in being a Trinity learner is an important part of our school and it is great to see so many of the children in their school uniforms.  We do ask that everyone only wears school colours – black, yellow, grey, white and in the case of our new P7s, their purple P7 sweatshirts.  Your support with this is much appreciated.

Building update

I am delighted with the work that has taken place over the summer.  A huge thanks to all those involved, particularly to everyone who worked so hard to transform the school from a building site on Monday to a school ready to open on Wed.   We now have new corridor windows, replaced rooflights, improved lighting and water storage as well as having areas of the school decorated, new flooring laid and new furniture purchased.  Acoustic panels have also been installed in the pavilion and we are confident that these will reduce noise levels.  Most importantly all toilet areas have been completely refurbished.

Some work is still ongoing but it is hoped that the shelter area and office spaces will be completed in the near future.  Phase two of the works will involve the building of a new boiler room and replacement of the hall windows.

MADD

At Trinity the year always start with a MADD project.  This year we will be MADD (music, art, drama, dance) about Musicals.  We are in the process of planning our MADD event for Friday Sept 13th to celebrate the learning.  Please do get in touch if you can help in any way.

Year ahead

As always the year ahead promises to be a busy and, I hope, a successful, happy and healthy one for everyone at Trinity.

Please see below for some key dates for your calendar.  As I am sure you will appreciate these may be subject to some change and we will try to ensure that updates are issued regularly.

 

Thank you for your support

NSPCC

Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect.  As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting.  We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete.  By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe.   Closing date for responses is 18 March.

Building Works

Dear Parents and Carers

As many of you will be aware we have been expecting considerable building works to upgrade the electrics, toilets, flooring, roof etc in our school. We had hoped the works would commence during the summer holidays but the start date was postponed. Following a meeting last week preparation for the works will now commence this week with the installation of work cabins in the car park and the preparation of a detailed scheduled programme of works.
Please be assured that, together with the contractors, we will ensure limited disruption to learning and teaching.  Further details will follow once the programme has been confirmed.
I am sure that the improvements to our building (whilst possibly not immediately obvious) will have a positive impact for everyone.
Thank you for your support
