Spectacular Art for our PTA Auction Tomorrow

Take a look at all of this amazing art work created by each of our classes from Toddlers to Year 6!  I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s absolutely beautiful.

Well… it could be yours!

Bidding has already started at half day pick up today and will be open again after school.  Final bidding will take place at our 25th Anniversary PTA Event at the Shore Club on Saturday evening.  All proceeds from the art auction will go to our PTA Funds.

World Book Day: 2017 – ‘A Storytelling Evening’

world-book-day-2017

This upcoming week, World Book Day, the annual celebration of books and reading for children and young people, celebrates its 20th anniversary on Thursday 2nd March 2017.  As usual, we plan to have a fun-packed day of literature enjoyment:

Book Character Dress Up (Whole School):

All the children throughout the school are encouraged to come dressed like one of their favourite book characters. It always great fun to see everyone dressed up in their creative, homemade costumes and to appreciate the wide range of books enjoyed across the school.

School Council Book Swap (Whole School):

Bring in a book (or 2 or 3) and swop it for a different book. Bring books in from Monday onwards (Wednesday the latest) and give them to your teacher.  You’ll get to choose your new book on Thursday.

Visit from British West Indies Collegiate School (Years 1-6)

Students from the BWIC will be coming to perform some story dramas and to read to us.  We have enjoyed this connection on World Book Day for a few years and it has become a much-loved part of our celebrations.

Storytelling Evening (Whole School) 5:00-600pm.

We are once again very excited to be hosting ‘A Storytelling Evening’. David Bowen has kindly offered to start the evening off by sharing an ‘Anansi the Spider’ folktale on the stage.  After this, teachers/other adults will be reading stories in the classrooms and around the school.  Let your child’s teacher know if you would like to read a story.  The children are encouraged to come dressed in their PJs and to bring along their favourite night time cuddly toy companion and a comfy pillow or blanket.  The PTA has offered to provide cookies and milk to add to the evening’s bedtime story time atmosphere.

 

 

Thank you from our PTA

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent PTA St Valentine’s Bake Sale and Family Skate Night.

The baked treats and pink lemonade were eye-catching, delicious and plentiful – what a lovely yummy choice we had! A BIG thank you to all our talented bakers, our time-giving sellers and to everyone who took the opportunity to indulge.  A tasty way to celebrate an early St Valentine’s Day.

The Family Skate Night was a ‘whizzing’ success with Provo Primary families and community friends having an exciting evening of skating fun and games.  A HUGE thank you to all our PTA helpers who organised the event, manned the refreshments and lead the puck shoot games.  It was great to see so many families rolling, turning, gliding and dancing around the rink together to the hit sounds provided by DJ Dayoh.

Thank you, everyone!

Santa Arrives in a blaze of lights and sirens!

santa-dec-2016-1Santa arrived to the joy of all at Provo Primary, in style as usual, on the local fire truck!  Greeting Santa in this way has been a Provo Primary tradition for what we think could be as long as 13 years.  And it is still very much loved by all of today’s students, just as it has been for every year gone by.

We would like to pass on a HUGE thank you to the Turks and Caicos Fire Service for helping out over the years.

Here are some of our youngest students – meeting Santa for the first or second time here at Provo Primary, to our oldest students – for whom this tradition is still very much a special time.

Thank you everyone from Provo Primary

pta-june-2016 A HUGE shout out to everyone who helped organise, and who supported our annual PTA fundraiser at Mango Reef last night.  What a fun night it was!  It was great to see Provo Primary parents and community friends all enjoying themselves together.  The children’s phenomenal artwork decorated the area and reminded us of the reason why we were all there.  Both Provo Primary and Food for Thought are very appreciative of all of your support.

Creativity feeds creativity!

Year 1Pirate ships, rockets, teepees, mud pies and more…

Traditionally, each year the children contribute to our annual PTA fundraiser by creating pieces of artwork to be auctioned. This year they are especially excited to be involved as proceeds from this Saturday’s event at Mango Reef will go towards enhancing our school playground.

In collaboration with the PTA, we hope to build a magical playground brimming with opportunities for more imaginative and creative play.

To help make our dreams a reality, we would like to tap into our diverse community expertise and businesses as much as possible. PTA/School funds will be utilized to pay for these local supplies and services.

Our Wonderful Spring Bonnets and PTA Egg Hunt

eyfs-bonnet-parade-2016-(10What an amazing selection of Spring Bonnets we saw today at our annual EYFS Spring Bonnet Parade.

Thank you to all of our EYFS families for doing such a wonderful job of creating the bonnets.  It takes some skill balancing and sticking eggs, nests, chicks, flowers on a hat and creating bunny ears that stay upright – a great example of a STEM learning activity at home for both adult and child to work on together! What creative families we have!  The bonnets were fantastic!

As is tradition, the children participated in a short parade around the school in front of cheering and clapping parents, friends and older students.
