Y7 Investigate how to Investigate…

Maths and Science classes have already got off to a head-scratching start at Provo Middle School this year!

Our new Year 7 class have undertaken a series of investigations in the hope of sharing their advice on how to succeed in an inquiry. From comparing results with others, to making careful notes and drawings – each member of the class discovered different ways to help themselves improve.

“Are we allowed to work together?” was asked at one point. As it turns out, finding proof is almost impossible if you don’t!

“I think I know how this works…I’ve solved it!” could be heard from the other side of the room. Again, as it turns out, forming a hypothesis (and testing it) is an essential part of the investigative process.

MINISTER OF EDUCATION WELCOMES PRINCIPALS, TEACHERS AND STUDENTS FOR THE 2019/20 SCHOOL YEAR

“On behalf of the Ministry of Education, I welcome back to school our Principals, Teachers and Students for the Academic Year 2019-2020. I am sure you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer vacation.

We are grateful to God for his protection and for not allowing Tropical Storm Dorian to hinder the reopening of school. As we commence this academic year, we are mindful of what our neighbours in the Northern Bahamas are enduring at this time from the wrath of Hurricane Dorian. Let’s continue to keep them in prayer.

Thank you for your continued hard work and commitment to the children of the Beautiful by Nature, Turks and Caicos Islands. We look forward to exciting learning experiences in the year ahead. I encourage our children to be respectful, kind and to do the best in their school work. The Ministry will continue to ensure that the infrastructure of our schools are safe, resilient and conducive to learning. We are here to support you and wish you all a successful year.”

Hon. Karen E. Malcolm
