School struck by tragedy say, they had a plan

The disappearance of 11 year old Kamron Brown and his 9 year old brother Kanyi Brown, has been felt by all who knew then, including the students and teachers at their schools.

Leaders and counselors at John Gray High School and Red Bay Primary School say there is a plan in place for circumstances like this.

Amy Hunt the counselor at Red Bay Primary, told Cayman 27, there is a dedicated team of counselors that are always on stand-by to attend any public school in Cayman in the event of a traumatic situation.

“We visited all the year 5 classes and talked to them, we spent the most time with Kanyi’s class. We told them the facts that he is missing and we hope he is found,”said Ms Hunt.

Meanwhile at John Gray a similar scenario played out. Students were saddened and in some case left distraught after they learned of what had transpired. Jonathan Clark the school’s principal told Cayman 27 the sent some students home and provided counseling services to both the students and staff who were well acquainted with Karmon.

“We have a really skilled team of Counselors here at John Gray. Like most schools on the island they work together in situations like that. They pull resources, so we know that we can phone other counselors up and they can come in to help and support students,” said Mr. Clark.
