The Beaches Turks and Caicos (BTC) team members recently provided a well needed face lift to one of its adopted schools in Providenciales, the Enid Capron Primary school for the new academic year.


Additionally, students of the Thelma Lightbourne and the Enid Capron Primary schools in Providenciales also received material from the resort to help in their art and craft classes.


Principal of the Thelma Lightbourne Primary, Robin Cox–Foster expressed delight with the growing partnership with BTC and the school. She stated, “the children look forward to the visits and the staff appreciate the resources. The resort continues to share with our school whether with our beautification, special needs area, environmental development or simply supplying us with educational materials. We are grateful for this partnership and we are looking forward to expanding this especially in this new academic year.”


The school received donations of glassware and t-shirts from the resort’s team of volunteers.


The Enid Capron School was not left out as they benefited from a major facelift, a cleanup day exercise and donations of T-shirts and glassware. Beaches Turks and Caicos provided the resources, labour, meals and refreshments.

Sophia Garland, principal of Enid Capron Primary, stated that she was grateful for the support. She also noted that the items will benefit all grade levels especially for art and craft activities such as tie and dye, hand and foot printing or textile designs. “I am especially excited about the glassware,” she beamed, “as students will have an opportunity to develop a level of comfort with using it. The team from the landscaping department ensured overgrown shrubs were neatly designed by the team and trees were pruned and cleared of dried branches.”


Minister of Education, Youth, Sports and Social Services, Hon. Rachel Taylor was on site to witness the transformation of the school.


“I love to see when corporate TCI roll up their sleeves and get involved in education,” she commented. “Education is everybody’s business. This partnership with Beaches Turks and Caicos and Enid Capron and by extension the Five Cays community continues to grow daily.”

The General Manager, James McAnally, commended the volunteers of these projects for providing well needed resources and labour. “We are mindful of our corporate responsibilities as we ensure that we provide the available resources to help in supporting the growth of education and maintenance of the environment and the community.”


Public Relations Manager, Orville Morgan, asserted that this is only the beginning. “There are a lot more donations in store for schools, including those on the sister islands. Beaches Turks and Caicos is committed to positively transforming educational institutions not only in Providenciales but throughout the Turks and Caicos Islands.”
