Our first Parent Council meeting of 2016/2017 is next week — September 5th at 7:00pm.
We have a great group of committed parents who each give a few hours every term to help in a variety of ways. Some attend meetings, some help with fundraising, some help run events, and some help with campaigns or communications.
What could you do? What time could you give? Every little bit helps, and all talents are welcome!
We would particularly welcome new members from those who have just started in S1 this year but everyone is welcome and there is no pressure to speak. Please come along next Tuesday and learn more about the parent council and the life of the school.
This year’s Rugby & Hockey Fun Day will take place on Saturday 26th August at the Bangholm sports centre. This is an event organised by the Trinity Accies Rugby Club, Parent Council, rugby and hockey clubs and local community groups.

The Edinburgh and Lothian Trust Fund (ELTF) has taken over the administration process of the Edinburgh Police Fund for Children. The purpose of the fund is to provide grants for outer clothing and footwear for school age children from families in “straitened circumstances” who reside in the City of Edinburgh district.
The information leaflet available here as a download explains who can apply for assistance and how to apply.
Welcome back to a new school year!
A group of parents is cycling 46 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh on 10th September to raise funds for the school. We have setup a page for donations on JustGiving and it is now live to collect donations. If you can please check out the page and give generously.
Every penny we receive will go to Parent Council funds to help the school with their projects. Please help support our students at Trinity Academy.
