Inter-Island Community Engagement

Posted: March 30, 2015

As part of the field trip to North Caicos, Middle Caicos, and Providenciales, we partnered with Provo Primary again to participate in inter-island community engagement. The partnership with Provo Primary began in fall 2014 with the help of the manager of the Amanyara Nature Discovery Centre, Jackie Walker. We returned again this semester, armed with 10 marine-related educational activities. We set up stations,with each group of 3-4 students responsible for facilitating a 10-minute activity before the kids rotated. Below is written by one of the fabulous teachers (Cara Buddle) that helps coordinate the community engagement morning:

Wonderful Whale Awareness with SFS!

The whole of Key Stage 2 were lucky enough to have a second visit from the wonderful team at SFS in South Caicos. This was a new group of students who have just begun their time studying down there. As it was nearing the end of the whale migration season here in TCI, the students dedicated all their activities to educational information on them. The knowledge they had and the dynamic and entertaining way they delivered it to the children was wonderful. All our children loved the morning and didn’t want the students to leave. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about our nature here in the TCI while also having the chance to interact with a different age group and learn about their studies.
