With the summer holidays almost here, I would like to wish the pupils, students and staff of Trinity High School an enjoyable, restful and well deserved break and look forward to seeing you safe and well when you return in August.
Staff are due to return on Monday 15th August; pupils and students on Tuesday 16th August.
If students entering S5/6 wish to discuss or amend options choices in light of SQA results, they are welcome do so before the new term begins by visiting the school on Friday 12th August to speak with their Pastoral Teachers or Senior Staff. Staff will be available to discuss option changes from 9.30am – 12.oo noon and 1.00pm – 2.30pm.
The end of term brings with it several changes in staffing. As a community, our thanks go to all departing members of staff for their contributions to the school and in particular the following members of staff who will be retiring from the school and moving into pastures new: Pat Carney, Terry Carruth, Kate Cowie, Charlie Dolan, Sheila Friel, John McGrane and Rosemary McLeod.
Likewise, the school community would like to thank and extend our best wishes to Anne Bogle and Margaret Lawson, two of our office staff who also retired from the school earlier this term. We also bid farewell and offer best wishes for their future careers to Leanne Burgess, Ainsley Moore and Jaclyn Smith, three of our Probationer Teachers whose time at the school comes to an end this term.
The school community extends a warm welcome to each of the new members of staff who will hopefully be joining us at the start of the new session: Claire Campbell (History/R.E.), Arlene Clark (Business Management), Kevin Herron (PT Social Subjects), Martin McInnes (P.E.) and Mairead Morley (Art).
Finally, I would like to extend my thanks to all who contributed their views to the recent Parent Consultation on Priorities for Action. The results of the consultation are now available to view and download from the school website as is the School Improvement Plan for the forthcoming session.
Thank you for your continuing support and cooperation. Have a great summer.
