Welcome parents!

International School of the Turks and Caicos Islands

I am delighted to write the introduction to our first 'Branching Out' NEWSLETTER. We plan to make this a monthly form of communication. It will provide details of what has been going on at the school in the past month as well as what we have coming up next month.

What a busy start to the year we have had! The children are all settled back in and I relish my classroom visits, where I find them excited and motivated in their lessons.

We are all busy and learning all the time adults and children alike and are inspired by the journey and what we can bring to our school in order to make it the very best it can possibly be for our young people.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter and keep checking our weekly blogs!

Best wishes, Katie Hinks, Principal

New Books for the Children!


We have a fantastic library which has been built up over the years to hold an exciting range of educational and fun books. It is a busy place, as every class visits the library during the week, it is used for Codebreakers and also used for special support sessions with Mrs. Danics. 

Currently there are almost 100 new books waiting to go on the shelves!

We are asking for volunteers to help plastic cover the books and label them so they can then be entered on to the computer system. 

Can you help get these books to the kids? Contact Ms. Jessica Barnett to arrange a time to help!
