The Eliza Simon’s Primary School is one of two government schools on the island of Grand Turk. It was established in 1970 and throughout the years has been successful at developing the physical, psychological, and interpersonal skills of students from the ages of 4 through 11 years old. The Eliza Simon’s School currently accommodates 243 students whom we are eager to mold into model citizens.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
