Our Creative Curriculum Leads to Great Academic Success

stars-of-week-may-2013Three children from Miss Cara’s class decided to take the Year 7 TCI Middle School entrance test last weekend.  We are pleased to report Theo Weldon (Year 5), Jamie Gray (Year 5) and Melinda Walkin (Year 6) were awarded the top three places.  Theo also took the British West Indies Collegiate Year 7 Entrance Test and gained the top place there as well.

This is not the first time we have seen such wonderful test results from our students and we believe this is proof that our creative, hands on approach to learning, not only makes learning more meaningful, but also helps develop higher academic attainment.  This is the second year in a row that we have gained 1st, 2nd and 3rd position in the Year 7 TCI Middle School Entrance Tests and the third year in a row gaining the 1st position and 3rd position. We have also gained the top position in the Year 7 British West Indies Collegiate School Entrance Test for the past 3 years in a row (2011,2012 and 2013) and also in 2009.

We are extremely proud of these children, as they were sitting a Year 7 test and were competing against Year 6 children from other schools and all still managed to come out on top.

We believe that our individual approach to learning encourages children who excel in certain areas.  Both Jamie and Theo have been working at a year 6 level in Math and Literacy, along with Melinda, which clearly helped when tackling the more demanding aspects of the tests, such as the Algebra and Geometry questions.

The three children were awarded ‘Star of the Week’ in our Celebration Assembly on Friday, not only for their academic success but also because of the way in which they conducted themselves on the day, as reported by Mrs. Karine and Mr. Mark of TCI Middle School. Congratulations and well done, Theo, Jamie and Melinda for being such outstanding role models and ambassadors for our school.

    Congrats to all 3 of them, and I also have to say I’m more then happy that Lyle was in Provo Primary. I could have not chosen a better school who gave him the best start a child can have. Now he is doing very well in TCI Middle school. Thank you to all Provo Primary teachers.
