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

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.

  • Black leggings/ shorts/ bottoms
  • 1 black top
  • 1 white top
  • Plain black or white trainers/ plimsolls if possible for dances
  • Plain bright coloured top (red, orange, purple, blue, green, yellow, pink)
  • Splash of tartan e.g. tartan ribbon, sash, kilt, tie, hat, scarf

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

Jacqueline Scott

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.

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

Pupils from P5 – P7 must have returned a signed paper slip indicating they have permission to leave early  –  this will be sent home this week.

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)

Best wishes
