There are some students on island who are having a hard time keeping up with the literacy level of their peers.
As September is literacy month, a special class was put on in the George Town Library last Saturday to give kids who need help a little boost.
Local service group Rotaract hosted a literacy programme called, “Tell me a story”, providing children with fun and creative assignments to do instead of traditional homework.
Students also had their favorite books read to them by members from Rotaract.
“So it’s come to our attention through various sources that there has been an increase in the amount of kids that are finding it difficult to read and to write and this was just our way of giving back to the community and helping those that are struggling,” said Community Service Director for Rotaract Club of Grand Cayman Rebecca Gonez.
International literacy day is now 50-years-old and was set up by charity UNESCO to increase literacy rates around the world.
