News Update 13th March 2018
Last weekend, the Collegiate had a most successful time at the National High Schools’ Track and Field Championship at the National Stadium. We are not a big school, so recognise from the outset that we do not have the numbers of students from whom to select when it comes to representational sports; we can only compare ourselves with schools of similar size. That said, our students do have passion and perseverance, and that shows in the results achieved:
- 2 gold medals,
- 3 silver, and
- 3 bronze, including
- a new national record in the under-20 Javelin competition (Nichole Watkins).
More details when we have them… Congratulations to all our athletes for taking part and doing your best – we are very proud of you!
Congratulations also to our Steel Pan Band who represented BWIC so well by entertaining the crowd at the National Stadium on Monday. Many spectators were left open-mouthed by the high standard of the musical performance, which had people wiggling in the stands. Well done to all!
This morning, we welcomed Mrs Eva Schloss to the Collegiate. Eva, childhood friend and eventual step-sister of Anne Frank (diary writer and Holocaust victim) addressed a Brayton Hall audience, packed with all BWIC students and teachers, as well as student and staff guests from many of the other schools in Providenciales. Eva related her very poignant and personal story from recent world history, of which we all need to be aware, so that the mistakes of mankind’s past are never repeated. Parents and friends of the Collegiate are warmly encouraged to listen to Eva speak tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at the Shore Club, beginning at 7.00PM. Entrance is free.
Tomorrow (Wednesday), the Maths Department will chair its annual Pi Day assembly, with fun activities to encourage mathematical thought. The quest is on to see who can remember Pi accurately to the most decimal places!
We have two Parents’ Evenings coming up – on Thursday 15th March this week for Year 11, and on Thursday 22nd next week for Years 12 and 13. Our students will have received an appointment sheet for your convenience.
I am sure you will ALL like to join us on the evening of Wednesday 21st March when our talented musicians perform in the BWIC Symphonium concert at 7.00pm in Brayton Hall. Mark the date and come early to get the best seats!
With very best wishes,
Anthony Wilkinson, Vice-Principal
