Sponsors help fund school trip

Nine students reach target $11,000 with community support


Year Six students of the Edna M. Moyle Primary School in North Side are set to leave on Friday, June 26, for a class trip to Orlando, Florida. The two boys and seven girls began raising money last October; with the help of adults and local businesses they raised $11,000. 

Group leader Felisiana Ebanks said students had two educational events and two fun events planned for the four-day adventure, with visits to Wonderworks, the Orange County Regional History Center, Magic Kingdom and Wet ‘n Wild. 

“Each child will be provided with a journal and a disposable camera to write down the events each day and what they learned and what they enjoyed the most,” Ms. Ebanks explained. 

They will be accompanied by parents and class teacher Tonia Harris. 

Adults who assisted student efforts with contributions or approaches to the business community included Shari Whittaker from Cayman National Bank, Johany Ebanks and Alex Johnson from J&J Enterprises, Maxine Bodden from Caribbean Creations, Rich Dyer from Burger King and a representative of Cayman Airways.
