Provo Primary parents claim silverware!

Providenciales Primary & Middle School recently competed in the TCIFA’s 7v7 Corporate Challenge, supporting youth soccer in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and were proud to claim the runner-up trophy.

Yet, this was a team with a difference. Instead of parents cheering on their children, this event gave our Provo Primary parents and friends a chance to run out and compete!

The team fought hard in a series of tight games through hot summer weather, tight group games, penalty shoot outs and extra time, eventually claiming a spot in the final against the TCI Police Force. Despite our eventual defeat, it proved to be a wonderful morning of fun, camaraderie and effort.

Many thanks to the Provo Primary parents and friends who signed up for the event – we look forward to going one step further in next year’s competition!

Thanks to all our Clean-up Volunteers!

A HUGE thank you to the amazing efforts of our Provo Primary families and friends who supported our ‘International Coastal Clean-up Day’ participation this morning.  Cleaning up the road from the TCIFA Soccer Field to the CARIFTA Stadium, was a crowd of hard-working volunteers (inc 25 students from our Yrs 1 to 7). This photo shows some of the team and a portion of the rubbish collected.

The area had been brought to my attention as in desperate need for a clean up by our Years 3-6 students who travel the route to the stadium for their P.E. lessons.  With vast amounts of rubbish collected, I trust that due to their actions, their journey will be noticeably cleaner (and for others and the wildlife too!).

With a knowledge that we all have the ability to take action and to make a difference, it was interesting to hear the children’s ideas on how we could help to discourage the littering in the area – I wonder what you think could help?

Provo Middle School Opens Doors!

After a busy and successful summer of building, Provo Middle School opened its doors to our first Year 7 students today. There were the normal range of first day emotions – excitement, apprehension, joy at seeing old friends, warmth in welcoming new classmates – and yet the day felt fresh and new, just like the building.

The class were busy exploring their new facilities and enjoying the breezy space we have down by the canal. Break times were sociable and active: spent making music in our new music room, playing soccer, or even popping over to play on the climbing frames. New friendships began emerging through learning and play.

Children spent part of their class time making ‘gratitude sculptures’ to fill the school grounds with a little beauty and art. As each rock was placed, children were encouraged to think of things they were grateful for in their lives. As it turns out, our new Year 7s feel grateful for a lot!

 

“I feel grateful for my little brother.”

“I am grateful for the opportunity to visit the UK with my dad.”

“I am grateful that I started playing soccer when I was younger, because I enjoy playing and competing with my team.”

“I feel grateful for my whole life.”

 

Well, it goes without saying that we are grateful for our beautiful new school and our outstanding Year 7 class!
