We ask parents to come along and help with the event to make it extra special!

Preschool children must be accompanied by a parent.

We need a volunteer to be the Easter Bunny!


World Book Day 2016

World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading.

The children had great fun this year for World Book Day 2016. They all came dressed in their best pyjamas and enjoyed a range of fun reading activities!

Each class worked extremely hard together and decorated their classroom door to showcase their favourite book!

New projects

New Projects for 2016
Ensuring that all children achieve their potential and ensuring that no child is left behind.

 By Mrs. Hinks, Principal

I am enormously excited to see the start of our Gifted and Talented program this term with 2 groups: one group of mixed Grade 5 & 6 students and a second group of mixed Grade 3 & 4 students and also Grade 1 & 2 students.

We pride ourselves on the learning support we offer to our children who require that additional support and all of our teachers are very used to differentiating within their classes and catering to the needs of a wide spectrum of abilities; allowing all to work to their potential.

Also this term we continued with our very successful Code Breakers scheme and our new Jungle Memory programme.

World Book Day

As part of TCI Education Week 2016 we were pleased to welcome back David Bowen, former Cultural Minister, and local musical legend. The children clapped along and thoroughly enjoyed the musical experience.
Maths Day

We had a celebration of the world of maths!  In our primary school, maths is of upmost importance and we try to make it appeal to all children, regardless of ability. We all know that children learn faster and retain more of the lessons taught them when it is done in a fun and easy way.  

We used this day to celebrate the wonderful world of mathematics and try out a range of creative ways to make maths even more fun than ever!

The school was split into their house teams the Tainos, the Caribs and the Arawaks and the children took part in all manner of fun and competitive maths games..

Celebrating Carnaval 2016 

Our music topic for the last 5 weeks has been Samba and so we had our own Carnaval in Turks and Caicos! We have been learning all about the Carnaval in Rio, and to celebrate this we held our own Carnaval parade at school. SEE THE PHOTOS

International School

The International School of the TCI would like to congratulate the Under 10 and Under 12 boys’ National soccer teams for their achievements and sportsmanship in the recent  tournament against Lyford Cay Bahamas.

We are very proud of our ISTCI students (past and present) who represented the Turks and Caicos Islands in the tournament.


The Highland Fling!

We have enjoyed an exciting start to 2016  in Grade 3. We have had fun using our new learning and teaching resources for Literacy and Numeracy while diving into to our new topic, ‘The Turks and Caicos Islands’.

On January 25th we celebrated a special interdisciplinary day of learning about the famous Scottish poet ‘Robert Burns’ known as ‘The Bard – Rabbie Burns’.

Healthy Eating Helpful Info

We would like to thank Ms. Lakeisha Wilson for the informative presentation she gave at our recent PTA Meeting on HEALTHY LUNCH BOXES.

She gave an insightful presentation on the benefits of healthy eating and provided helpful ideas to make sure our children are getting everything they need in their diets for healthy growth and academic success!
