Today, in Cayman Brac Students from West End Primary School, Creek and Spot Bay Primary Schools (Infants and Juniors) and Layman Scott High School will gather to pay tributes to Her Late Majesty at District Administration Building (Cayman Brac) and the Cayman Brac Day Care Centre.


Speaking to tributes across the schools Minister of Education, Hon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly noted “Queen Elizabeth II has been a strong and constant figure in our lives for many years. I am truly saddened by her passing and proud that our students had the opportunity to pay tribute to the late monarch.”
