We are holding a school reunion for former pupils as part of our year celebrating the school’s 125th anniversary.
It’s a rare opportunity to meet-up with old friends and teachers, tour the school and relax while enjoying refreshments from our bar. To give us an idea of numbers this is a free, but ticketed, event and tickets are available from Brown Paper Tickets.
Edinburgh College, Skills Development Scotland and Developing the Young Workforce are co-hosting an information evening for parents of pupils from Schools in Edinburgh, East and Midlothian. This event will provide all the information you need to know about the new types of Apprenticeships and career pathways.
Working Futures’ gives you the chance to find out more about these new career pathways and the opportunities they present. Hear from young people about the advantages of work based learning and their own experiences. Meet and chat with employers and university partners. There will also be the chance to get hands on with some of the practical aspects of the Foundation Apprenticeships.
If you wish to carry a torch the Procession you can pay to buy a ticket pre-paid for a Torch. Torches are available for a special online price of £12.00. Please note torches will be priced at £15 on the night, subject to availability.
There will be hot soup, mulled wine, hot dogs and other refreshments available at the school before and after the event.
Torches are available from 6pm and the procession will start at 7.30pm. All Children under 16 must be Accompanied by an Adult.
Trinity Academicals and Trinity Academy are holding their annual Fun Day on Saturday 1st September. There will be rugby and hockey coaching sessions in the morning and surprise sporting stars will be attending to coach, meet and greet.
This is always a great local event. Come along and support the school, the rugby club and local community groups. Donations of prizes for the Tombola are very welcome. They can be handed in to the school office or brought along on the day. Looking forward to seeing you there.
Trinity Academy is 125 Years old on 4th September 2018. We are planning a year-long celebration and this is the first event. We are showing an outdoor screening of The Greatest Showman (singalong version, in case you want to join in).
For an extra £2 you can also join in our silent disco too!
This is a community event, so former pupils and members of our local community are welcome to come along. We will have the La Favorita pizza chariot, Barney’s Beer, plus JAC’s coffee van from Victoria Park and food and wine on sale.
The doors will open at 6:00pm and the film will start at 7.30pm, so there’s plenty of time to have some food before the show starts. Book through Brown Paper Tickets.
Come along to our party! A great way to start our year of celebrating 125 years of Trinity Academy and looking forward to its future.
Our next fundraising event is a Burns Supper which is a joint event with Trinity Academicals Rugby Club and takes place Saturday 20th January from 7:00pm.
There will be a traditional meal of haggis followed by speeches, entertainment and, of course, a ceilidh. Tickets are £15 and are available by either emailing Suz Edwards or from Mrs Quayle in the English department. Tickets are limited to 120 and are anticipated to sell out quickly, so reserve yours early!
We will also need help and volunteers in the following ways:
Help to set up on Friday 19th 1.30pm to 4:00pm.
Help from 5pm with last minute preparation.
Volunteers on Sunday 21st from 10:00am to help clear up.
People to help with the bar for an hour on the night.
We also require 12 trifles that are big enough to serve 10 people.
If you can help with any of these please email Suz.
Our AGM will take place on the 15th of November, this year starting a little earlier at 6:00pm. It’s a very relaxed evening where we will be serving refreshments and getting to know any new parents who come along.
This is the meeting where we appoint Parent Council office bearers and set our priorities for the coming year. It’s also the meeting where parents can join the parent Council, either by attending the meeting or by letting us know in advance by email. To be a member, you only need to be the parent or carer of a pupil at Trinity Academy.
Would you like to be more involved in the life of the school?
Would you like to help to support the school in its work with pupils?
Would you like to help to promote contact between the school and parents, pupils and the wider community?
Would you like to help to represent the views of parents at Trinity Academy?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then you may find it worthwhile to become a member of the Parent Council. You can note your interest by emailing us or by sending a note to us via the school office or you can just come along on the night.
If being a member of the Parent Council isn’t for you, you can still be involved. All parents and carers are very welcome at any of our meetings and can still take part in most of our activities.
Please consider whether you could help and please do get in touch.
The school is running LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer) training for staff on the 23rd October to focus on inclusion and also as a step towards attaining our Rights Respecting School award. There are a small number of spaces available to parents who would be interested in taking part in the training.
The training will last for the morning. If you are interested in taking part please contact the Deputy Head, Miss Cook, directly.
