Emergency Contact Information

Phone ImageFor parents and carers of Tynecastle High School students:

In the case of emergency situations/school closures text messaging will be used to update parents and carers. For this reason it is very important that we have your most up to date mobile ‘phone numbers so we can contact you. Please let the school office know straight away if you change your number. You can contact us on 0131 337 3488 or by email at admin@tynecastle.edin.sch.uk

As we continue to improve our communications it would also be helpful to have an email contact for you. If you would like to provide an email address please contact us. (Please note this will not be used for emergency closures at this time.)

Although text messaging will be our main communications method, for school closures this will be backed up using the existing communications channels – the Council Website, the Council Twitter account and Radio Forth.

Tynecastle students take in NBA game

NBA Photo 1On Thursday 15th January nine students who play in the Senior Basketball Team travelled to The O2 in London to watch the NBA game between Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks. Annually the NBA take two games outside of the USA, this season was Mexico City and London. With Mexico being a bit out of our reach we headed to London to take in the action. The event had sold out within an hour of tickets being released for sale so we were extremely lucky to be able to attend. A packed and excited arena saw the Milwaukee Bucks up 31:13 by the end of the first quarter, with the game virtually decided by then, the Bucks slowed their pace but went on to a win 95:79. Friday saw us take ourselves off to Wembley for an interesting and informative stadium tour before fitting in a little bit of sightseeing and shopping before returning home. The students and staff all had a fabulous time. The trip was most definitely worth it!
