Trinity Academy took a team of eight S2 pupils up to Napier University today to take part in their annual ‘Build a Business in a Day’ competition. Twelve schools were competing against each other to create their very own business idea. Our budding entrepreneurs had the chance to start the foundations of their very own business and pitch their creation to a panel of expert judges.
In what was a packed day, our pupils participated in workshops, created their business idea and exhibition stands and presented their ideas to the expert judges. We’re pleased to say that Team Trinity won the competition and will receive their prizes at an evening celebration which they are attending along with their parents tonight.
Congratulations to the following Trinity former pupils for their achievements:
- Emma Henderson, First in Fashion Management from Robert Gordon’s.
- Amber Reilly – 2:1 in nursing from Edinburgh
- Lauren Baillie – First in law from Glasgow
- Laura Ryan – 2:1 in Geography and Politics from Dundee
- Gregor Johnstone – First in Graphic Design from Napier

Are you a gardener without a garden? Are you on the waiting list for an allotment? Would you like to support your local school?
If you have answered “yes” to these questions, then the Trinity Academy Community Garden could be for you.
The Council is setting up a community garden in Victoria Park over the next two months (using one of the old bowling greens). The school has the chance to take responsibility for part of that garden and are in the process of setting up a “green-fingered” team. A number of pupils and staff have already expressed an interest in the project.
We also need the support of parents and carers if we are to make a success of this venture and, particularly support the garden over the summer breaks. If you are willing to help in any way, please contact Mr Morris at the school by telephone (0131 478 5050) or email.
Unfortunately the quiz night planned for the 27th has had to be cancelled as there was no janitorial cover available. We’re still looking to hold this event as soon as possible.
