Learning at the Ritz

Year 6 students from Sir John A. Cumber Primary School recently visited the Ritz-Carlon, Grand Cayman to learn practical applications for the science curriculum they are learning in school.

There were 20 Year 6 students who spent the morning with landscaping manager David Samms.

They discussed the important role trees play in Cayman’s ecosystem, and they learned the proper way to plant the trees.

The students seemed to enjoy getting their hands dirty as they planted additions to the resort grounds.

Also, executive pastry chef Rolf Runkel and his team taught 50 Year 6 students how science is precisely supplied in the hotel’s bake shop.

They toured the pastry kitchens and made their own creations from dough to bread men.

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman has an ongoing relationship with Sir John A. Cumber Primary School through its Community Footprints Programme.

Other ongoing activities with the school include a Reading Buddies programme and hospitality education programmes and tours at the hotel.
