The latest edition of our Parent Council newsletter is now available. This issue includes the latest news from the Parent Council updates on our fundraising and you can learn about the life of one our former pupils since she left school.
It’s available to download from our documents section and, as always, we welcome your feedback and contributions
We hope you enjoy it.
This week we issued a letter to the Council regarding the ‘Wave 4’ programme for refurbishment of Edinburgh schools and the need for continued investment in the school.
Since the programme was first reviewed in the summer of 2015, there has been no visible progress made on the first of the activities the Council is carrying out — forecasting the future school roll. It was originally stated that this would be complete in 2015 but is still continuing. The purpose of our letter at this stage is apply pressure to the Council to finish these studies and also to highlight that for us as a parent body, any holding back of necessary investment during this period is not acceptable.
On the 26th September we held a parents’ information evening for new S1 parents based upon our experiences as S1 parents and the things we wish we had known then. We have produced a short handout providing more information on some of the topics covered on the night.
Our first Parent Council meeting of 2016/2017 is just one week away — September 6 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.
Happy new year and welcome to 2016, a new year and school term. To start the year we thought it might be useul to provide a one-stop summary of all the ways to stay in touch with what’s happening at the school and Parent Council. Feel free to pick those that suit you best.
The school has a website and it is updated regularly and the Rector’s blog is usually updated once each week. The school also provides a number of Twitter feeds:
Some of the Twitter feeds are private which means you need approval (and a Twitter account) to follow them.
Most of our communication is posted to this website but we also update our Twitter feed and Facebook group regularly. Please feel free to follow any of those accounts and we’d love to hear your feedback too.
From all of us at the Parent Council…
Wherever you are going, and whatever you are doing during this break, we hope you enjoy the holiday.
The Rector now has a blog on the school website and is intending to update this regularly with news of what’s happening in school.
Welcome to the new look website of Trinity Academy Parent Council. We’ve busy developed this new website to replace the previous one that served us well for many years. We hope you like the new look. This site is designed to work on all computer screen sizes from a full desktop PC down to smartscreen sizes.
This new site is still very much a starting poing point so if you have any feedback or suggestions please get in touch.
