Heritage gets a boost

John
Gray High School Year 10 students will be able to continue their weekly
excursions into Cayman’s heritage at the National Museum thanks to Maples &
Calder and Webster’s Tours.

The
law firm donated $4,000 to the museum, a portion of which will assist with
museum membership for the students, while the remainder will fund some of the
museum’s educational programmes.

Webster’s
Tours will continue to donate transportation for the students every Friday
afternoon.  

“We’re
really grateful for these donations,” John Gray High School Head of Year 10
Chris Bounds said.

“They
both help the museum and contribute to our children’s knowledge of their
history.”

National
Museum Education Coordinator Nasaria Suckoo-Chollette explained that while
school-group visits are now free of charge, all students will be charged a $5
entry fee come September 2010. Other individuals and corporate entities are
therefore encouraged to assist, where possible, by sponsoring a school.

For
more information, call Mrs. Suckoo-Chollette on 949-8368 ext. 2025 or email her
