Graduations for the Elementary and Secondary Schools are held in June. This is a highlight in our school year as we celebrate and honour our graduates for their achievements. As we say our fond farewells we know that our graduates are well prepared for their future educational pursuits.
This is a “not to be missed event” which draws visitors from across the island. This annual fundraiser turns our Providence campus into an interactive Hallowe’en adventure for youngsters. Add food, music and treats for all ages and you have the perfect family outing. Our parent volunteers and staff make it all possible.
Although a large percentage of our students are Barbadian, Providence welcomes students from over 20 countries. Multicultural Day is designed to promote education and celebration as students and staff share their culture, heritage and music with each other. We feel truly blessed to be part of a school community with such rich diversity.
This is a special day, highly anticipated by students, staff and parents alike. Our four houses are keenly competitive and each wants to win the coveted Sports Day Cup. Sportsmanship is stressed and cheering strongly encouraged. There are various track events as well as fun filled races like sack races and “Catch the Bus”. Our physical education teacher and house leaders prepare students for their events.
Invitational Chess Tournament
For the past 6 years Providence Elementary School has successfully hosted an Invitational Chess Tournament. More than a dozen schools across Barbados compete to be the best at Chess! Providence always fields a strong team who practice throughout the year in our Chess Club.
Providence Elementary School’s swim meet takes place in September at the Aquatic Centre. It is the first sports event for the academic year and sets the tone for our sports programme. It is a day of fun, competition and is used as a gauge for swimmers who will be selected to represent Providence at the National Primary School Swimming Championships in October. The day is one of our most exciting days enjoyed by students, parents and staff.
