Provo Performing Arts’ Video – What do you Mean?

PPA-WhatDoYouMean from Provo Performing Arts School.

Provo Performing Arts  School’s Easter Camp was a brilliant success.  Take a look at their amazing Justin Bieber’s ‘What Do You Mean’ video that they created, in association with Eyespice Photography.  Throughout the project, the students explored and developed their knowledge and skills in choreography, dance, directing, acting, singing, voiceovers, costumes and make-up.    Well done to all of the performers and to director, Niki, too.  What fantastic talent all round…  it certainly looked like it was lots of fun too!

Do you love to dance and perform… do you wish you had been in this video?  Provo Performing Arts School is affiliated to Provo Primary School and classes run daily after school.  Take a look at the Provo Performing Arts schedule for this term classes and look out for future Camp activities.

Happy Commonwealth Day – March 14th, 2016

commonwealth-day-2016A big thank you to Year 4 for teaching everyone in assembly on Friday about why we celebrate Commonwealth Day.

The Commonwealth is a family of 53 nations and are home to two billion plus citizens of all faiths and ethnicity – over half of whom are 25 or under.  Member countries span all continents and oceans from Africa to Asia, the Americas, Australasia, the Caribbean, Europe and bases in Antarctica.

Most of the countries in the Commonwealth were once ruled by Britain, but today many other countries with different cultures, languages and faiths now want to be part of the Commonwealth.  As an Overseas UK Territory, the Turks and Caicos is part of the Commonwealth and we have a public holiday every year.

Santa Claus is Coming to School!

santa-2015 (3)Tradition continued here at Provo Primary, with Santa arriving on our last day of term on a bight shiny fire truck, welcomed by everyone singing ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’!

Wearing flip flops (island appropriate stage props!), but still otherwise dressed in his winter suit, he spent the morning sitting and speaking joyfully to each and every one of our children! Christmas wishes were whispered to Santa and in return a special book gift received.

Thank you, once again Santa for stopping by, creating lots of smiles and memories.  And also to everyone who helped make this tradition a highlight to our end of term activities.

Year 6 enjoy participating in TCHCA ‘Hello Tourist’ initiative

yr-6-hello-tourist-nov-2015 (11)Year 6 recently received an invitation from the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association, which requested their participation in their Hello Tourist initiative. The Hello Tourist scheme aims to make children more aware of the tourism industry here in the TCI by giving insight into the variety of job opportunities that this growing sector offers; why tourism is important to our islands economy and financial well-being and the need for excellent customer service in order to further promote the facilities and resources accessible here on island.

Accepting the invitation ensured that on the 23rd November all members of Year 6 would be treated like a tourist for the day, in order to gain a better understanding of the hotel and tourism industry. With their passports in hand, Year 6 embarked upon a fun-filled and educational day!

Thank you for all of your Christmas toy donations

school-council-toy-drive-dec-2015 (2) The School Council would like to say a HUGE Christmas time thank you to all of you who donated the many wonderful gifts during our Christmas Toy Drive. It was astounding to see the many gifts that you managed to donate. We’re sure that your generosity will be much appreciated by other children in our community.

So once again the School Council found themselves helping load a truck full of your donated ‘goodies’ (last month it was books for the local library). Captain Miller, from the Salvation Army, was thankful for the gifts and will organise the distribution of them over the holiday season. Thank you also to Nicole, who kindly dropped off at the Salvation Army store a further car full of gifts that came in this morning.  You still have time to donate if you missed the drop off  – please now take your gifts directly to the store.

A Merry Christmas to you ALL. [Read more…]

Tree Planting at Provo Primary for World Aids Day

ps-tree-planting-5-2015Trees were planted all around the Turks and Caicos yesterday to mark World Aids Day. Here at Provo Primary, our youngest students helped to plant a mahogany tree in the school playground.

The event was organised by the HIV Prevention Unit and DEMA to celebrate World Aids Day. Celebrations are often marked with the release of red balloons but, in the interest of caring for our environment, Lynn Robinson of Big Blue Ltd promoted the planting of trees instead. The native Mahogany was kindly donated from the nursery at DEMA.

Although the children were too young to understand the significance of the occasion, they were keen to share their knowledge of what trees need to grow and how we can care for them.

Over the years to come we look forward to watching both our children and the tree grow up healthy and strong. [Read more…]

Preschool look after the Puppies at Potcake Place

ps-potcake-place-nov-2015 (13)The Preschool children visited Potcake Place as a part of their “Beautiful TCI” topic. We arrived very excited and were greeted by the little barks of Potcake pups. Mrs. Jane shared a few ways to take care of puppies with us which were very similar to the ways our parents care for us!

In small groups, we were able to bathe and dry two Potcakes, Pluto and Daisy. The children were quite gentle and calm. Perhaps the highlight of our visit was watching four, two week old, puppies learn how to drink milk from a bowl and then being able to pet them. They were so sweet and cute. One started crying because he couldn’t find the bowl. Mrs. Jane gave us the task to come up with names for them. So far we have suggestions of Pluto, Orch, Red, Snowy, Doggie, Picka, Noodle and Moo!
