Girls Basketball Success

Congratulations to our Open Girls Basketball team who won the basketballscotland Open Girls Plate on Tuesday 13th March against George Heriots. Progressing this far in the competition was a first for both teams and in itself a great achievement for all. The final score was 45 : 20.

Girls Basketball Team 2018

The girls did amazingly well, working and communicating as a team putting everything they have learned in training sessions into practice. Listening to each other as well as their coach Tom Griffin they have each developed into more confident individuals and team players. They have worked hard this year to integrate new players and this has really paid off. They approached the final with the right attitude and they all played well and showed great respect to all other teams and officials throughout the competition. We are very proud of them.

Singing Workshop for Children’s Mental Health Week

Come and join a singing workshop on Monday 5th February 3.30pm-4.30pm at Tynecastle High School, in celebration of Children’s Mental Health Week. No singing or musical experience needed, everybody welcome!

Children’s Mental Health Week (5-11 Feb 2018) is an annual campaign to raise awareness of children and young people’s mental health. This year’s theme is ‘Being Ourselves’, and what better way to express ourselves than through music? This event is free and open to everybody in the Tynecastle High School community: students, parents and carers, school staff, and also those in our cluster primary schools (Dalry, Balgreen, Stenhouse and Craiglockhart).

Singing will be led by Caro Overy. Caro is a choir leader, singer, and songwriter who enjoys sharing songs old and new from around the world to help people connect and have fun through singing. She is a trained Natural Voice practitioner with experience in a range of community and healthcare settings, and leads Edinburgh’s folk and roots community choir Castle Chorus.

For more information about this event, please contact Sarah Haywood (Place2Be School Project Manager) but please do just come along!
