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.
This booklet, written by parents for parents, aims to pass on helpful information at the start of your child’s journey through high school.
So, the 2015/2016 school year is over! And what a busy and interesting year it has been for the school and Parent Council.
We have enjoyed a successful year working with Bryan Paterson and his dedicated team of teachers and staff. Our members have been involved in the interview processes for the Rector, the appointments of 3 new Deputy Head Teachers, and Curriculum Leaders for Mathematics and for Expressive Arts and PE. We have supported the school, raising thousands of pounds by running fundraising events and have improved electronic communications with parents as well as sending out the weekly bulletins and played our part in the local community, including Trinity Community Council and Friends of Victoria Park. Watch this space for more news of a joint fun event in August with Trinity Academicals RFC!
The school itself is clearly on an upwards path, with a positive vibe, building on its strengths and tackling those areas where there is still room for improvement and really starting to go places. We are looking forward to welcoming 160 new S1s and their families to the school in August – a 33% increase on the intake last year. None of this would have been possible without everyone pulling together to achieve it.
Our first meeting in the 2016/2017 school year is 6 September. Please hold the date and thinking about coming along to take part or simply learn more.
On behalf of the Parent Council, I would like to thank all parents, carers, pupils, teachers and staff, Council staff, Councillors and MSPs for their support in the last year. We hope you all have great summer holidays and return refreshed and ready for an exciting new year. Finally, we would like to wish all those pupils and teachers who left Trinity Academy this year the very best of luck in their future careers and destinations.
Congratulations to Milly, Eleanor, Kirstin and Dominika from S3 who won this year’s Parent Council Award for the creativity they showed in Design Ventura. In addition to the cup they were presented with replicas of the puzle that took them to the final of the design completion in London.
We found it hard to choose a winner from some great nominations this year.
Issue 1 of Writer’s Block – a magazine written by Trinity pupils for Trinity pupils is now available on the school website.
Like the editor, we lift our glass looking forward to many more interesting articles.
There’s a new blog post from the Rector on the school’s website.In this post he talks more about his vision for the school and the work being undertaken to increase our links with the cluster primary schools.
