End of Term December 15th

4th December 2017



Examinations for Years 6, 7, 8 and 9 will take place from Monday 11th December to Wednesday 13th December. The examination schedule for these junior year groups was distributed last week.


A new homework timetable, enabling students to plan their assignments better, will be made available in January.


Those that attended today’s Parents and Teachers Association meeting took a tour of the Collegiate to see the damages caused by recent hurricanes. The committee will be discussing ideas to re-focus fundraising for this year in order to help expedite repairs and improvements to school facilities. Two ideas being developed are for a monthly Yard Sale to be held in the school car park, and for a casino night – to take place in Brayton Hall, probably in mid-February.


Representatives of the TCI government are meeting with youth from across the islands in order to gauge opinions and interests. We have been asked to arrange for a large cross-section of our students to meet with government representatives on Wednesday this week; this will take place in Brayton Hall at 9.00am.


One of our large casuarina trees was badly damaged during Hurricane Irma, leaving two very heavy, dead branches hanging over the car park. For health and safety reasons, the tree was felled last weekend. Other casuarina trees that pose a risk to school infrastructure will also be cut back soon. BWIC has engaged the services of a horticultural specialist to advise on our school grounds, and new plants and saplings are being cultivated to spruce up the gardens.


Parents are reminded that the current term ends on Friday 15th December, when students should be collected from the Collegiate at midday. On account of the re-structuring of the school calendar in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, reports will be available for students in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 only. Reports and examination results for all younger year groups will be made available on Friday 19th January.


Thank you for your ongoing interest in Collegiate news, and for your kind collaboration with school events and initiatives.


With best wishes,


Anthony Wilkinson
