ISPS offers the opportunity of working in a supportive, professional setting. Professional Development is of paramount importance to us and all of our staff are exposed on an on-going basis to professional development.
Our Parent Teacher Organization plays an active part in the School and during the year a series of activities/surprises are hosted by the PTO for our staff.
The School year kicks off with a week long orientation for all staff. This is planned one week prior to the official start of School and culminates with a “lime” at the Director’s home. Our new hires coming from abroad usually arrive two weeks before School starts and are treated to a “special” orientation centered around getting acclimatized to Trinidad & Tobago.
During the year the School is a buzz of various activities; from coffee mornings, curriculum nights, International Week, CAISSA and Carnival week. International week usually begins with the Parade of Nations Assembly and ends with the fantastic International Food Festival. This event is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to get together and to learn about the cuisine and cultures that characterize our international community. We usually host CAISSA once a year. During the Carnival season many activities are planned and culminates with a Carnival parade.
Trinidad & Tobago: endless possibilities
You’ve made a wonderful decision to discover Trinidad and Tobago! Tobago is perfect for restoration: lazing on picture-perfect beaches or an escape into nature – whether silently observing the island’s diverse wildlife, or pushing your body to the limit while mountain biking or windsurfing! Trinidadians work hard and play hard: the island’s an economic powerhouse and in some ways the festival capital of the Caribbean.
