Burns’ Night Celebration

The parent and carer council warmly invites everyone to our annual Burns’ Night celebration on Friday 24th January from 7pm-10.30pm.

The Burns Supper is a big part of our annual fundraising calendar. We have musical performances from our Pipe Band, musicians and Highland Dancers plus some poetry and traditional speeches from staff and senior pupils, before some delicious food and then ceilidh dancing. It’s a fantastic night.

We are especially keen to welcome those who have never been to a Burns’ Night before!

Tickets will be available from the school office or by registering on the link below, for a suggested donation of £5 per adult or £1 for students/children.


If you want to donate raffle prizes please drop them off at the school or bring them on the night.

S3 iPad Issue Evening

S3 iPad Issue Evening – Tuesday 14th January 2020 at 7pm

Dear S3 Parent/Carer,

I’m delighted to invite you to the S3 iPad Issue Evening on Tuesday the 14th of January 2020. The event will take place in the Gorgie Suite at Tynecastle Park and begin at 7pm.

iPads have been successfully used to enhance learning and teaching and improve outcomes for our students at Tynecastle High School for over 6 years. This event is an opportunity for us to explain about this highly successful digital learning programme, and also an opportunity for you to ask any questions.

As you arrive you will be issued with the iPad User Agreement document. This must be read and signed by the student and parent/carer before the iPad is issued. There will be time to do this on the night and you can also view a copy on our website. No iPad will be issued without agreement from parents/carers, and so your attendance on the evening is essential. If you are unable to attend, please contact the school immediately on 0131 337 3488.

Students will receive their school iPad on the night along with a cover and charger.

I look forward to seeing you on the night.

Yours sincerely,

Hazel Kinnear
Head Teacher
