A reading day for students on Cayman Brac

Reverend Merle Ediger reads to juniors at Creek and Spot Bay School.

In celebration of Child Month, Brac primary school and day care centers celebrated a day of literacy on May 1.

Police Constable Indrani Tahal and the Reverend Merle Ediger read with juniors at Creek and Spot Bay school from the Butterfly StoryBook collection 2018, written by Cayman school children.

Ms. Tahal read the story “Washed Ashore” written by Aracely Matute-Trejo, a 10-year-old West End Primary School student. Rev. Ediger read “Difference,” written by Jordanne Osbourne, a 10-year old student at Edna Moyle Primary school.

Annie Rose Scott, Brac community development officer for the Department of Children and Family Services, said the reading day was a big success and well received by everyone.

“The children enjoyed and shared in the real-to-live stories from the Butterfly StoryBook 2018, written by young authors of schools in the Cayman Islands and produced by Rotarians of the Rotary E-club of the Caribbean 7020,” said Ms. Scott.
