Parent and Carer Council AGM 2018

The AGM of the Tynecastle High School Parent & Carer Council will be held at the School on 27 August at 7pm straight after the new parents’ end of transition evening which begins at 6pm in the main hall, so we hope to have some new parents join us and a good turnout of continuing parents. We’ll have a short report on the activities of the P&CC during the past year and election for new officers, as well as a discussion of priorities for this year.

After two years of sterling service to the P&CC, Jamila Fox will be stepping down as chair, so we’ll need a new chair.

Look forward to seeing many of you next Monday.

Best wishes,
Sophia Woodman
Secretary, THS Parent & Carer Council

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.
