First Baptist Christian School (FBCS) has been using software based assessment tools to keep track of individual student progress for a number of years now. This has enabled the school to identify areas of weakness and potential improvement at a much faster rate when compared to conventional methods, significantly improving the the student transition from one grade level to the next.

Significant improvements have been seen in the students transferring from WEE Care to the elementary school and even on to other schools. An achievement the school is particularly proud of.

This software is, of course, quite expensive and this is why the school hadn’t yet purchased the version that includes the ability to track children as young as 3 years old on this advanced level.

Fundraising efforts were planned to raise the money to purchase this software but, due to the limited resources available, this was a dream that didn’t appear as if it would be realized in the the near future.

At the mere mention of the school’s intention to acquire this software in a recent Kindergarten open house back in late November 2014, Mr. DuPlessis, a current parent of two children enrolled in FBCS WEE Care, approached the school principal Dr. Linda Cross about the possibility of Rubis Cayman Islands sponsoring the purchase of this software.

When presenting the check, Mr. DuPlessis mentioned how pleased his company was to do their part in assisting the school shape the young minds of Cayman and looked forward to seeing the fruits of their investment in our country’s future
