National Education Week – 3rd – 8th March 2019

National Education Week here in the Turks and Caicos will be observed between 3rd – 8th March 2019 under the theme, “Quality Education for Lifelong Learners”. Click on to see how we will be celebrating Education Week a Provo Primary and Middle School.

This year’s theme song for Education Week, Quality Education for All (QEfA)  is written by the Long Bay High School Team – a catchy tune with a great message! Here are the lyrics if you would like to sing along.

Education Week was established more than 29 years ago to call attention to the importance of education and to showcase the talents of TCI teachers and students. During the week, schools throughout the country will host a myriad of activities and the general public is encouraged to join in unity with educators and students in support of the theme.

Here at Provo Primary we will have a variety of activities going on throughout the week, culminating  in our ‘Open House’ showcases and parent workshops – sharing our work developing our ‘Visual and Hands-On Is Minds-On’ approach to quality Mathematical teaching and learning across the school.  Neuroscience research into the brain and learning is giving important insights into mathematics learning, inspiring Maths success for all students through growth mindsets, number sense,  and innovative teaching involving practical and visual exploration of concepts.  We are set for a busy week of Maths learning ahead and hope you can come along.

Mr. Jason usually leads our participation in the FORTIS Science Fair and Quiz, but with the opening of our Middle School, and his extra curriculum duties as a result, we have decided to not enter this year.  We do, however, plan to enter next year in both the Primary and High School events so do go along to see what it’s all about.  As the winning Primary School at the last Science Fair (2017) we have the proud pleasure of opening the awards ceremony this year with the vote of thanks.
