Our daily Breakfast Club has been running successfully since August last year. Every day we offer all students a delicious range of breakfast options, from fruit and yoghurt to toast and cereal. This is a completely free service and all students are welcome. Breakfast Club runs in the Community Wing from 7.30-8.20a.m. every day.
We are very happy to let you know about our Partnership with Capital Credit Union, a not-for-profit and ethical organisation whose aims and values chime with the school’s own. Perhaps this is something that would be of interest to you?
• Save towards ‘large scale school events’, for example Florida, football trips, World Challenge, Prom

• Open a savings account for a new baby in your family
• Save towards family expenses such as a holiday, Christmas or other festival, or new car or furniture

Below please find a useful link, and do please contact Mrs Bell at school (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on 0131 337 3488 if you would like to know more about our Partnership with CCU. If you join in the next month or so, be sure to mention Tynecastle on your application, because you will be entered into a draw to win £50 or £25 (x2) for your new account.
Singing workshop at Tynecastle High School, Mondays 3:30pm – 4:30pm
Following on from the success of our Singing Workshop to celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week, we are now offering this opportunity every Monday starting on Monday 26th February. No singing or musical experience is needed and everybody is welcome. These workshops are 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 Linda Stewart. Linda is a former teacher of Music with a wealth of experience who has recently returned from her post as Musical Director on a Caribbean cruise ship. We hope that these workshops may lead to the development of a Tynecastle Community Choir if the members are enthusiastic. Please do come along and join us.
Mindfulness Taster Session, Monday 26 February, 3.45pm-4.45pm
This session is for all staff at Tynecastle High School and our associated primaries and also members of the Parent/Carer Council. Come along and find out more about mindfulness. An 8 week (free) course will be offered after the Easter holidays for those interested from across the Tynecastle cluster.
