Are we really at the end of May? This year is flying by so quickly! We have had another wonderful month, full of hard work, fun and more stories of success!
We were so proud this month when our children received their entrance exam results for the TCI Middle School and BWIC. As a result of their hard work and great results, all of our children were offered places and we were delighted that two of our students achieved first place in the BWIC Year 6 and Year 7 exams: congratulations to Jenna and Brooke!
At the end of April our Grade 2 and 4 children sat the National Literacy and Mathematics Assessments. We have been assured that they will try their best to have these results to us before the end of the school year. It was requested that we send teachers along to assist with the marking and Mrs Chung supported us in this.
We were so proud of the teams who represented our school in TCIFA's annual school tournament against some (often much older and larger) tough competition. Congratulations to them all!
The outstanding work of our EYFS teachers was recognized by the Turks and Caicos Islands Department of Education in a visit earlier in the year. As a result of this, this month we took part in a teacher exchange program, whereby our teachers hosted Early Years teachers from other schools, in order to share their excellent practice.
We ran an Open Day for our EYFS department at the end of the first week in May. All children enjoyed an action packed morning and we signed up many new little children to join us in the new school year.
We have ended the month with a visit from an Educational Advisor from the UK, Diane Durrant. She has been working with us over the course year, to help us in achieving our goals of developing our school, in order that we can provide and achieve the very best for our children.
I hope that you enjoy reading about all of the other excitements that May has brought to the children, staff and families of the ISTCI: from field trips and visitors to classroom fun! Thank you for your support, Mrs Hinks
