All parents, carers and guardians want their children to achieve to the best of their ability and do as well as they can in their exams.
Research shows that children, whose parents become involved in their education, are more likely to perform better in exams. Many parents would like to do the same ……..but unfortunately don’t know where to start.
Exams can be a stressful time for students and parents alike, sometimes for the whole family. However, there is a lot that we can do to alleviate these pressures and help your child achieve success and perform to the best of their ability. Mr Gilroy of our Modern Languages department has compiled a very useful and informative parent’s guide to revision and exams. The purpose of the guide is to help parents support their child in preperation for, and throughout their examination period. Click A GUIDE TO EXAMS AND STUDY SKILLS FOR PARENTS to access the guide.
Trinity High School was very proud to have a pupil selected to attend the week long residential summer school at Strathclyde University, which provided an eclectic mix of lectures, labs and workshops all on a space theme, delivered by leading academics and researchers, and supported by NASA astronauts and engineers. Following this week, Thomas Scally (S6) was selected as 1 of 10 students from across Scotland to experience a 7 day Learning Journey to Johnson Space Center in Houston in October, where he was inspired and motivated in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and took part in various experiences developing high quality communication, team-building and problem solving skills.
Below are pictures of Thomas’ experiences in Houston:
