Pin It

Well-known residents took to the class rooms of Cayman Brac and Little Cayman to read to young students, on Monday, 1 May 2017.

The Celebrity Reading Day, which kicked off this year’s Child Month, took place at West End Primary as well as the Creek and Spot Bay Infant and Junior Schools, the Cayman Brac Day Care Centre and the Little Cayman Learning Centre. The day’s aim was to encourage and promote literacy among children in schools.

Organised by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), the event was the first of several child-friendly initiatives scheduled throughout May, under this year’s theme of “Our Children, Today and Tomorrow!”

Readers for the day were FLOW Retail Manager Gayle Esson, Pastor David Woods, Planning Officer Andrea Stevens, Lorlaine Samuels and Mexi-Ann Grant.

The day was a big hit with the students judging from how attentive they were and the comments afterwards,” said Community Development Officer Annie Rose Scott.

For a schedule of Child Month activities throughout May, either contact the DCFS on 949-0290/948-2231, or visit its Facebook page to view the Child Month calendar.
