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

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.

  • 1 black top
  • 1 white top
  • Plain black or white trainers/ plimsolls if possible for dances

P7 Benmore Visit

Benmore Outdoor Centre | Benmore House Catered Accommodation and activities  for schools and large groups | Book Now

Dear P7 Parents, Carers and Learners

It is now only a matter of weeks before we head to Benmore – so exciting!

At the moment there is no reason to suggest that our visit will not be taking place.  There is however particular information relating to COVID guidance that needs to be shared with families along with general information about Benmore.  A meeting has been arranged for Tues 22nd February at 6.30pm.  This meeting will take place on TEAMS so please look out for, and accept, the invite.  

Mrs Boath will be in touch over the next few days to provide details about the balance, if any, that is now due.   It is essential that all payments are made by March 4th 2022.

The experience of going to Benmore is possibly the most memorable moment of P7 so I am absolutely delighted that our P7s will have the opportunity this year.  Let’s keep everything crossed that it goes ahead as planned.

Best wishes
