Keeping in Touch

We’re here to help!  If you feel that you need a wee bit of help and support during the school closure please utilise the various supports detailed in the ‘Support for Families’ section.

All ICT related issues such as Glow/Google Classroom password resets and access to Scholar should be directed by email to gw18trinityictc@glow.sch.uk.

Keep in touch with your teachers through Google Classrooms; they are happy to offer help, support and feedback.  They’re also doing a fantastic job updating resources and adding tasks and assignments and many are currently setting up new Google Classrooms for our pupils who are returning for S5/S6.

To assist with our forward planning for next session all S4, S5 and S6 pupils are requested to complete a short survey.  This can be accessed by clicking the following link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeNyvyg3Crs8jatN0kk80XzHYPkRLM21zjrL4LzuYNHGGfp6w/viewform?usp=sf_link
