Savannah Primary students honor vets

Savannah Primary Head Boy Maleik Eden and Head Girl Soleya Manzanares present Col. Larry Rochelle with a check for the Veterans Association as Principal Carol Nyack looks on.

Savannah Primary School students had a special dress-down day on Nov. 4 to raise money for the Cayman Islands Veterans Association.

The students raised $519, which was presented to veteran Col. Larry Rochelle by school Head Boy Maleik Eden and Head Girl Soleya Manzanares.

At two special school assemblies on Nov. 7 and 8 for the infants and the seniors, Col. Larry Rochelle spoke to the students about Remembrance Day and the role veterans played in history, and the students had the opportunity to ask questions and to get a close look at some military memorabilia.
