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.

Vaccination Information March 2018

HPV (cervical cancer) vaccine consent packs are out now for girls in S1 and any other girls who were previously missed. If you receive a consent form pack please ensure you read this and discuss it at home. Please make sure the form is returned as soon as possible, signed by both child and parent. 

The HPV vaccine, given to girls in S1 and S2, protects against the main strains of the human papillomavirus which cause cervical cancer. It is important that you get this protection early enough for it to be effective – you should have all the required doses as soon as they are offered at school.

More information about the programme can be found using the following link to the HPV page of the Immunisation Scotland website. Or you can call NHS Inform for further information on 0800 22 44 88 (8am to 10pm, every day).

If you are unsure if your daughter should have received a consent pack please call Mrs Walker, Welfare Officer, on 337 3488.

Upcoming Vaccination dates
Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio vaccination (all S3s and all catch-up from previous years) – 27th March 2018
HPV vaccination – 6th June 2018

Singing Workshop and Mindfulness Taster

Singing WorkshopsSinging 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.
