Dictionary donation

Year 5 classes of the Sir John A. Cumber School received a donation of 93 brand new dictionaries from the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Sunrise. The Usborne Illustrated English Dictionary contains over 1,000 illustrations, over 10,000 entries and 25,000 straightforward definitions.

“It has been really amazing to see the kids get so excited by the dictionaries,” said Rotary Sunrise president Christine Mathews. “It’s quite motivating to see them get immediately absorbed.”

Rotary Sunrise’s literacy director Sue Mander and Education Minister Tara Rivers were on hand to help give out the books.
