We’ve updated our 50:50 club details page to make it easier to join by online banking. At the moment the prize fund each month is sitting at over £70 so it’s a great time to join and every winner gets a nice bonus if their number is drawn!
At this week’s information evening for P7 families joining the school we provided those attending with a pamphlet with information from parents about the school. Our aim was to pass on helpful information from other parents at the start of a family’s journey through high school.
Summer is the best time to visit your shortlist of universities and colleges — almost all institutions have open days in June and July. Saturdays 17th/24th June and 1st July are the big ones with institutions across the UK opening. Wherever you are, or wherever you want to visit you’ll find a nearby university or college with an open day in the next few weeks.
Take a look at the Opendays.com Calendar for more info, maps and all the detail you need for the forthcoming dates.
We also have a list of the more local open days on our events page.
The weekend’s nearly over so let’s look ahead to next weekend!
We’re holding a summer gin tasting and barbecue next Friday, 9 June at the school. Gin – it’s so popular right now; a single spirit, loads of different flavours, how do you know where to start?
Ash from Appellation wines is sure to guide us through the world of new gins in a really fun way and you get an opportunity to taste six different premium brands. For only £20 you can kick-off the weekend, relax, meet other parents and raise funds for Trinity Academy!
We need to finalise numbers by Tuesday so please email Suz Edwards if you are interested in going.

Apart from world events, the page also offers advice on mental wellbeing, stress and helping a friend in need.
Check out the page for more detail on the resources available.
Parents and students are invited to attend two events about the employability and creativity skills sought by employers. Details of the invitation are shown below and we have two posters with more details linked from their and in our downloads section.
If you are interested in attending please email Martin Hutchison directly.
You are invited to an informative and inspiring conversation event about the employability and creativity skills, sought by employers.
The Schools and Lifelong Learning Arts and Creative Learning team is hosting two events primarily for parents and young people. Creativity is not all about the arts but is a skill set which is increasingly sought by employers in today’s rapidly changing world.
This is not a traditional career information event. Rather, the format is based on the highly successful and engaging Creative Conversations where people come together to talk about an area of education, in this case employability and creativity. The events will be held in Firrhill and Craigmount High Schools, and parents and carers from right across the North West and South West localities are encouraged to attend either event. Further events in the East of the city are planned for August and September.
The event is conversational and informative. You, and your children if they would like to attend, are invited to come along to hear about what creativity skills really are and why they are highly valued in the workplace.
Please share this invitation with your local parents and carers and encourage them to come along, either by themselves or with their children. Refreshments will be served from 7pm and you are welcome on either date.
- Details are:
Tuesday 30th May hosted at Firrhill High School
- Tuesday 6th June hosted at Craigmount High School
5:45 – 8:00pm with refreshments from 7:00pm
Anyone wishing to attend should RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by the date on the invitation. We look forward to meeting you at either Career Conversation.
A group of parents and pupils are planning to cycle the 45 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh as part of this year’s Pedal for Scotland Classic Challenge or wee jaunt on 10th September. Though that might sound daunting, it’s a really well-organised day on closed roads, with rest stops every 10 miles. Those taking part will have a great time and help raise lots of money for the school through sponsorship!
If you’re interested in finding out more, taking on a personal challenge and helping the school, please get in touch. The more the merrier… Parents, students and staff all very welcome!
We will also have some weekend training rides, which you’re very welcome to join whether or not you want to take part in the event.
Of course if you are unable to take part you will be able to sponsor the riders or cheer them on. Look out for details soon.
Our Friends at Trinity Academicals Rugby Club are having a Race Night on Saturday 20th May. Details are in the attached Poster.
I am sure they would welcome any support we can give them.
