Cayman 27 – ARCHIVE

Building stronger readers

Ministry of Education officials attended the re-dedication of the Sir John A Cumber Primary School on Tuesday.

Chief Officer Christen Suckoo says boosting literacy levels in Cayman means ensuring all the school libraries are up to par.

“The Ministry is working with the Department of Education Services, to reinstate libraries in all schools. Some of our schools already have functioning libraries, some of them are on their way, but we are committed to ensuring that all schools have functioning libraries,” said Suckoo.

The school’s PTA President Vanda Powery says the school’s library is vital to helping build stronger readers.

Rotarians from different clubs who were all involved in the learning support programme Literacy Is For Everyone (LIFE) also attended the mornings events.
