Next GIS Spotlight busts out the skateboards and meets world-renowned skateboarder Shaun White at the Black Pearl Skate Park where he taught local kids and government officials the tricks of the trade.

The show also tells you more about the Department of Tourism's Skate Cayman, the summer camp programme that sponsored the famous skateboarder's visit to our shores.

Finally, a visit to the Protocol Office shows the serious side of official behaviour. Find out what it's like to work with visiting delegates and diplomats, and arrange national events.

Also, get the definitive answer on how to fly the flag, and which to sing first: the national anthem or the national song.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme airs on Mondays at 6:30 pm on Cayman27, and again on Thursdays at 7:30 pm on Island24. All the stories seen in this week's edition can also be found on YouTube at the following link:
