Making Maths Count Initiative


Making Maths Count” is a Scottish Government national initiative that has two broad aims:

  1. To encourage greater enthusiasm for maths amongst children and young people, their parents, carers and the wider public
  2. To provide support for teachers and help raise attainment in Mathematics National Qualifications.

To encourage engagement from the wider general public an online questionnaire has been developed to look at how people feel about maths, how they use maths and how confident they are with their maths skills.

Health and Resilience

Life often throws challenges our way. It could be the death of a close family member or friend, a serious illness, the loss of a job or the breakdown of a relationship. ‘Resilience’ means our ability to cope with these events.

As parents and carers, you play a vital role in helping to prepare your children for the difficult times that life brings.

Design Ventura 2015 Finalists

Four girls from S3 have received an award for most original concept at the final of this year’s Design Ventura competition at the Design Museum in London.

Design Ventura winners

The 2015 Design Ventura challenge started with 10,000 participants from 287 schools in the UK and overseas. In December, Trinity’s team pitched their puzzle ‘On the other hand’, designed to teach sign language, to a panel of judges that included Sebastian Conran and Naomi Cleaver.

At the final event, the judges said that the teams present represented “the best design talent in UK secondary schools.”

A number of schools were singled out for special awards, including Trinity Academy’s team.

Design Ventura certificate

The finalists’ entries are on display in a purpose-built ‘Design Tank’ beside the Thames where they will be seen by 1000s of people every day until the end of March.

Well done done to everyone (pupils and staff) who took part.
