While we’d encourage everyone to support local and small businesses, we know that’s not an option for everyone. The run up to Christmas is the busiest online shopping period of the year and it may be busier than ever this year.
One of the things we do as parents is raise funds to help the school do more — providing more opportunities to students and helping families who struggle with the costs of the school day. This year we haven’t been able to do this as easily, so we need your help more than ever.
We have two ways to benefit Trinity Academy when you order online and they won’t cost you a penny more!
One of the things we do as parents is raise funds to help the school do more — from providing more opportunities to students, to helping families who struggle with the costs of the school day. In the past we ran fundraising events that were opportunities for parents to meet socially, perhaps enjoy an outdoor movie or a quiz night or even live music in the school.
For the foreseeable future we won’t be able to run those events but we will look for alternatives and we want to continue to support the school, now more than ever, so we need your help.
Please join the 50:50 club, keep using EasyFundraising and Amazon Smile when you buy things online but also think about whether you could afford to make a small regular payment to our charity — Trinity Academy Charity Trust. Just a few pounds (just whatever you can afford) donated every month could make a massive difference to helping the school and it’s really easy.
One year ago we started a year of celebrating Trinity Academy’s 125th anniversary with an open air cinema and silent disco. It was a massive success, so how do you follow that and mark the end of a year of celebrations…
Saturday 5th October – Doors open 6:00pm and the film starts 7.30pm so there’s plenty of time to get something to eat and drink before the show starts.
La Favorita mobile pizzeria
Barney’s beer on tap
Burgers and hot dogs
Prosecco, mulled wine & snacks
Come prepared for the weather, to sing and dance. Bring chairs and blankets. Fancy dress is optional but a lot more fun. You can even just enjoy enjoy a great night somewhere that’s been at the heart of your community for 126 years!
Tickets available online from Citizen Tickets.
Adult £5 Child £3 and separate charge of £3 on the night for the Silent Disco.
There’s now a new (and free) way to raise money for Trinity Academy if you are an Amazon user. Once you’ve signed-up to Amazon Smile, Amazon will give 0.5% of the purchase price to our Charitable Trust and then we will pass on those donations to the school.
The school needs to raise money to put on the school show ‘Grease’ in June so there is a fundraising Massaoke. Ms Milne’s band will be playing, and the whole audience takes part, singing along. The Parent Council is running a bar for the event and it’s sure to be a fun night. Tickets are available from Ms Milne. Please support this event.
Following our AGM, our Chair, Liz, was delighted to be able to hand over the Parent Council’s donation of over £8,000 to the school. Parent Council funding is used to support equity and inclusion across the school. This year our donation will help to purchase
For the last few years a group of parents and pupils have taken part in Pedal for Scotland’s cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh. This event is a highly successful fundraiser and this year we are hoping to enter two Trinity Teams with separate fundraising goals:
Trinity Academy Charitable Trust – open to anyone; with fundraising going to our charity. The Trust supports a wide range of charitable donations to the school and pupils.
Team Sri Lanka – open to anyone; with fundraising contributing to the fundraising target for the School’s Hockey and Rugby tour to Sri Lanka.
The cycle is a closed-road event on Sunday 9th September. Most of us will be doing the 45-mile route, but there are also 10 and 100 mile alternatives. The 45-mile route is a mixture of hills and flat roads that can be completed by riders with a wide range of cycling skills.
If you would like to take part in either team please get in touch with us and we will pass on details to the two teams.
