PARENTAL BULLETIN – 3 DECEMBER 2021

RETURN TO SCHOOL AFTER CHRISTMAS (SPRING TERM)
The government have advised that all students (aged between 12-18yrs) need to be tested upon their return to school in January 2022. Therefore, they have allowed for school to have a staggered return to facilitate this. We will give further details before the end of term.

If you have not previously given consent for your child to be tested using the LFT, and you wish you child to be tested, pls email the school signalling your consent to [email protected]

CHRISTMAS CONCERT
We are really pleased that the Christmas Concert will be going ahead this year, however, due to Covid – we have unfortunately be forced to make this an invite only event to families of the performers. Therefore, we ask that parents do not turn up on the day. Tickets are not available on the door. Thank you

CAREERS
Year 9 – In the next few weeks all of Year 9 will be having an induction session on how to use our online Careers resource: Unifrog. This programme can be used at school and at home and offers quizzes, information about a huge selection of Careers, including webinars, podcasts, CV templates and much more. Every possible pathway at 16 and 18 is catered for and this resource is available for all of the Year 9 students for the time they are at Trinity.

Year 11 – Over the next few weeks all of Year 11 will be having an assembly all about apprenticeships and a chance to do some research and start applications for their pathways next year. The presentation is on the school website and if there are any queries please email [email protected]

COVID
As you will be aware track and trace of positive cases is now done by Public Health England. We have had positive COVID cases in all year groups and strongly advise you to keep a regular routine for LFT testing alerting [email protected] or [email protected] if you have a positive result and to go for a confirmatory PCR test.

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘PUBLISH’ – The word ‘publish’ means you have a) prepared something b) and now share it. It is a specific type of creation. It is something you have made. ‘Publish’ is a verb.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“At Total Football magazine we pay £25 for every email or letter we publish.”

“I want to publish my brilliant idea for solving world hunger.”

The word ‘publish’ comes from a 14th century word ‘publishen’ which meant to make known or to reveal. This Old English word comes from an older French word ‘publier’ which meant to spread abroad. This French word comes from the Latin word ‘publicare’ which meant to make public.

Radical Reading /Listening Link of the Week:

Wondrous New Words: ‘roister’ – ROY-ster – (verb), to take part in noisy partying or celebrations.

Quote of the Week: ‘In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: it goes on.’ Robert Frost – American poet.

Thinker of the Week: Do you think you’ve ever seen the same wild animal more than once?

PLAY SAFE, A NEW NATIONAL SAFEGUARDING CAMPAIGN (FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION)
Over the weekend, the Football Association and the NSPCC launched ‘Play Safe’, a national campaign to focus attention on the vital importance of safeguarding in football. At the heart of the campaign are three short films to emphasise the importance of safeguarding for key groups of people, crucially children themselves.

One aspect of the campaign is prompting parents to ask questions:

  • Do you know your child’s club Welfare Officer? 
  • If so, do you have their telephone number in your ‘phone, as well as that of the NSPCC?
  • Are you up to speed with your child’s club’s safeguarding policies and procedures?
  • Do you regularly check-in with your child to see what they are enjoying/not enjoying and why?

More information can be found here: https://www.thefa.com/PlaySafe

“He said he would not initiate the search for the lost treasure.” (verb)

Wondrous New Words: ‘amity’ -AM-uh-tee – (noun), creating or re-establishing friendship, often between countries.

Radical Reading /Listening Link of the Week: It is perhaps a little bit early to start thinking about Christmas, and everyone knows this most famous of stories – but how many of you have actually listened to the whole thing? One chapter per week will take you right up the day itself!
