Children at Cayman’s public primary schools are being challenged to show their creativity to win a class field trip to the Central Caribbean Marine Institute on Little Cayman.
An anonymous donor has provided funding for three classes from government schools to attend the research center on a three-day, two night field trip.
Classes in Years 5 and 6 are being asked to submit a poem, ocean-themed mural, song or message in a “creative format” explaining how much it would mean to them to visit CCMI for the course.
Carrie Manfrino, president of CCMI, said the donation made it possible to open up the course to more students than would otherwise be possible.
“CCMI has been able to offer hundreds of children full scholarships over the last 10 years thanks to amazing support by this donor. Because of their passion for this programme, 60 students will receive in-depth access to learning about oceans and coral reefs this year.”
