Clifton Hunter High School students have been busy taking part in a variety of activities across Grand Cayman in recent weeks.
According to a press release, Year 10 business and science students paid a visit to the Cayman Islands Brewery on Tuesday, Oct. 18. The business students were there to learn about the process of manufacturing and what happens in a factory, while the science students were focused on the scientific process of aerobic respiration, in this case fermentation, that is needed to make beer.
In other school news, five Clifton Hunter students, Brianna Bodden, Theola Williams, Micharia Lawrence, Keanu Oliver and Abigail Smith represented the school at the KPMG Brain Bowl Academic Tournament held at the Marriott Grand Cayman Resort on Nov. 7, 2016. The competition is similar to the “Jeopardy!” game show and the school has been involved from its inception in 2011. The questions posed are based on high school academic subjects, including mathematics, English, science and Caribbean history, and students are also quizzed on current events.
A group that has been very active this year is the Clifton Hunter High School detachment of the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps.
With part proceeds of the Cayman Islands Civil Service Association Cooperative Credit Union’s Walk/Run on Saturday, Oct. 15, going to the Clifton Hunter High School Cadets, members of the detachment were on hand at the event to assist as marshals. Later in the month, school Cadets attended the Cayman Islands Veterans Gala on Oct. 22. Joined by new recruits, the Cadets also participated in the Remembrance Day Parade on Sunday, Nov. 13, in George Town.
More recently, on Nov. 19, in partnership with the Youth Service joint community efforts in East End, school Cadets and new recruits along with Cadets from John Gray gave their time to repaint and do heavy yard work at the home of elderly district resident Elizabeth Bodden.
