Trainees of Sunrise Adult Training School recently paid a visit to the luxurious Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.
The group was given a grand tour of the facilities and treated to a scrumptious complimentary lunch in one of the junior dining rooms. Travelling with tour guide Melissa Perkins, the group visited the Cayman Islands Grand Ballroom, the picture gallery, outside pools and dinning rooms.
‘The trip to the Ritz was to let trainees see the wonderful display of local art in the gallery,’ said organiser Mary Fortney from Sunrise. ‘This was a wonderful opportunity for them to see the different styles of art works and to get ideas for their own creations.
‘At the centre trainees are enrolled in an art and craft programme and this visit would give them fresh ideas of their own works.’
Thirty-two trainees too part in the tour.
Meanwhile, 30 students from George Town Primary and Lighthouse schools visited the Ritz-Carlton to prepare for a poetry competition being sponsored by the Cayman Island Public Library.
This year’s contest topic is the opening of Cayman’s largest hotel titled, the Ritz-Carlton Collection. Following their tour, students will submit a poem based on what they saw and experienced at the resort.
Students from Red Bay Primary will also participate in the competition.
