LEAF International features T&T in

International Learning about Forest (LEAF) featured Trinidad & Tobago, including Tobago International Academy, in its global newsletter. Check it out!


Learning about Forests aims to increase knowledge about the key role forests play in sustaining life on our planet through outdoor and classroom learning. The international programme encourages students to reconnect with their woodland heritage and imbues them with a sense of ownership of their environment which, in many places, has become lost over time.

Planting A Tree for Peace

Alexis Douglas only Tobagonian finalist in CTO primary school writing competition

Alexis Douglas, a Standard 4 student at Tobago International Academy, earned first place in the national 8-10 year-old creative writing category of the 2017 Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) Primary Schools writing competition. She is one of four national winners and the only winner from Tobago.

Alexis and the other national winners were honored at the Ministry of Tourism’s 2017 Junior Minister of Tourism Competition and Awards ceremony on Wednesday, July 12, at the Government Plaza Auditorium in Port of Spain.

“I was really surprised and happy to win a national award,” Alexis said. “I just wrote about how tourism adds value to my family and what we can do to help tourism and protect the environment in Tobago.”

Alexis continues in the CTO writing competition as one of three international finalists for her category, the other finalists hailing from St Eustatius and Montserrat. In total, only 12 international finalists were selected from the 28 CTO member countries.

“We are so proud of Alexis,” said Tobago International Academy President Laura Cotton. “To be the only winner from Tobago and one of only two from T&T to be selected as an international finalist is amazing.”

Alexis’ mother, Kerry-Ann Douglas, expressed special appreciation to Alexis’ teacher, Mr. Hamilton Davis.

“We are both honoured and humbled. This really couldn’t have been possible had it not been for Tobago International Academy and the dedication of Mr. Davis and his unwavering faith in Alexis.”

The Caribbean Tourism Organization will announce the final winners of the international writing competition soon. International winners will be presented with a special certificate of recognition from the Caribbean Tourism Organization and honoured with an all-expenses paid trip to attend and participate in special activities at a major CTO conference in 2017.
