Mario Rigby, Our Very Own Modern Day Explorer.

We are so excited to celebrate the journey of our very own explorer, Mario Rigby. Mario Rigby attended Provo Primary School before he went on to do such great and adventurous things.

I wonder how many of our current students can imagine themselves walking across Africa.

Well Mario did it, and as a result, he ended up in National Geographic! Mario says “It’s always been my dream to be featured in National Geographic… Here I am now”

We hope that encouraging our children to develop a growth mindset and allowing them to believe that anything is possible has an impact on their ability to realize their dreams. Before the start of this new school year, we encourage all our students to imagine, visualize, create, believe, set challenges and goals, practice frequently, and work towards making your dreams a reality, whatever they may be. Mario visited the school earlier this year to talk with the children – it was truly inspirational to hear about his adventures.

Is anyone else ready be a modern day explorer? Maybe start by exploring your passions and talents, or why not encourage someone else to recognize and realize their abilities during this new school year. You really never know what you can do unless you try! Get to know what others can do too, maybe you can team up to do something together in the future that is as great as Mario’s achievements.
We’d love to hear from our other alumni and about some of the goals you’ve managed to achieve since you left Provo Primary. Please write and let us know.

Daycare Provision at Provo Primary

Painting a weather scene

Provo Primary re-opened it’s Early Years section of the school when deemed it was safe to do so by The Turks and Caicos Education Department and Ministry of Health, in June.

As soon as our school closed, it was always our intention to offer in school provision for this age group having recognized that online learning was not an option and we were happy to be able to do so.

Although not all of our families took advantage of our in school daycare provision, families who felt their children had really missed the social aspect of being with their peers, were keen for them to return. Parents who needed to return to work were grateful for help looking after their children, after a long period at home.

Education Department DRAFT Guidelines for the Re-Opening of Schools:

Provo Primary and Middle School have received the draft guidelines for the re-opening of schools in September.  The schools’ leadership team have met to discuss these and provide feedback to the Department of Education.

We will attend meetings with the Department of Education over the coming days, alongside local government and private schools, and participate fully in the consultation process.

We will further update our parent body as soon as we have clear guidance on the reopening of our school, the protocols we will be following and the format of the education we will be providing in the first instance.

Please be assured that the received Draft Guidelines match with the planning and staff training that we have in place. This ensures that we will be able to work quickly to make plans ahead of the new school year.
