More than 300 children, parents, teachers and sponsors attended the annual children’s breakfast for Child Month last weekend.
Student speakers at this year’s event, held at the Marriott resort on Saturday, were Thirisha Ramawswamy, Nathaniel Deleon and Allyah Powell, who spoke on various topics with the theme of how parents, teachers and the community can improve the lives and education of children in the Cayman Islands.
Students from most primary schools on the island participated. Debbie Webb-Sibblies recognized all the educators at the event for their hard work and investment in children’s lives.
At the breakfast, the winners of an essay competition, titled “How can we open our hearts to the children of the Cayman Islands?” were also announced. Tiasa Robinson, Micah Leon and Satiah Miller won first place in the various categories and received cellphones from Digicel. The second-place winners were Jelani Hanson, Ocean Edwards-Best and Theodore Thompson, who received gift certificates.
The breakfast was hosted by the Circle of Love Women’s Ministry in conjunction with the Department of Children and Family Services, as part of events throughout the month of May, which has been designated as Child Month.
