I give God all the glory and praise, for I could do nothing without him!

To serve in the capacity of an educator over the past twenty-two years has been a privilege. It is truly a humanitarian effort.


I will endeavor to allow God's will to be manifested through my leadership and to steer the school's path. I vow to rise to the invitation of running a school and aim to instill a platinum standard of education under the tutelage of the TLPS staff.


The students of TLPS and all schools, for that matter, are our future! Therefore, as the school's motto states, we must and will continue to ''Cultivate Seeds of Excellence!''

Deputy Governor and Head of the Public Service Her Excellency Anya Williams in extending congratulatory remarks said:


“It gives me great pleasure to congratulate Mrs. Robin Cox-Foster on her appointment to the post of Principal of the Thelma Lightbourne Primary School.


Robin is a career educator, having dedicated over 20 years of service to the field of education here in the Turks and Caicos Islands.


I am certain that she will be a great miss to the staff and students of the Ianthe Pratt Primary School where she served as the Vice Principal for the last seven years, but I am certain that she will do extremely well in this new post and will help to lead the Thelma Lightbourne Primary School to soaring heights in the future.


All the best Robin and congratulations on this well-deserved promotion!”
