Enrichment programme targets youth

The Cayman Islands National Trust
is hosting a series of enrichment programmes for school-age children.

The Trust programme offers students
a variety of choices each session, which include arts and crafts projects,
cooperative games, homework club, creative play options and socialisation

Every Tuesday or Wednesday from
3.30pm to 5.30pm, January 12 to March 10, youngsters can involve themselves in
exploring nature, investigating historic sites, joining various cooking and homework
classes and participating in a number of arts and crafts workshops.

Registration for the eight-week
session is taking place and tuition for the programme costs $200. This can be
paid weekly at a cost of $25 per session, with children being enrolled for either
a Tuesday or a Wednesday session.

Application forms can be picked up
from the National Trust office at Dart Park in South Sound or downloaded from
the National Trust website at nationaltrust.org.ky. Forms can be sent to

According to the Trust, the
programme is aimed at providing children with a safe environment where they
will be given the opportunity to express themselves and develop socially,
physically, artistically and creatively.

It also provides a
venue for children to learn about the government, environment and history of
the Cayman Islands.
