BUG Launch- JACPSThe students at the Sir John A. Cumber Primary School love BUGs now that the Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman has started a new programme at the school called Bring Up Grades or as the students know it, the BUG programme. “I am very excited to welcome the Kiwanis’s Club to the school. We are certainly happy that they’ve decided to involve themselves directly with our children’s education and we look forward to a long and productive relationship with the Club,” says Principal of Sir John A. Cumber, Mr. Joseph Wallace.

Each reporting period students from Year 3 are recognised for increasing one level in Math. Bring Up Grade recipients are placed on the BUG Honor Roll and receive an award certificate at the BUG Recognition party hosted by the Kiwanis club.

“The beauty of the BUG programme is that it encourages students to focus on making one small accomplishment at a time. When a child reaches his/her self determined goal, it promotes a sense of accomplishment which motivates them to continue achieving,” says Kiwanis Club President Tonicia Williams.

There may be students that do not raise their grade level during the term, but provide outstanding support to classmates who then achieve their goals. These individuals are honored as Super BUGs for going above and beyond to provide support and assistance.
