Kids tidy up at Miss Lassie’s

Pin It

Around 20 students, teachers and parents from George Town Primary School’s Year Two got together to help clean up Miss Lassie’s House at South Sound.

The kids learned all about visionary painter the late Gladwyn Bush, better known as Miss Lassie, and why it is important to preserve Cayman culture for future generations.

The students raked leaves into lots of big plastic trash bags, and while they worked, they were taught all about the different kinds of vegetation growing all around
 her house.

“Each year a group goes out once a month as part of our Character Education programme. Year Two so far has had the biggest turnout,” said Year Two teacher, Sarah Douglas.

Miss Lassie’s House is being restored by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation, but is used by the National Gallery for art classes.
“The National Gallery came to greet us and give us t-shirts and to teach the children about the importance of preserving this house,” Ms Douglas said.
