Partnering with Education

John Gray High School Year 12 student Renee Lindo (left) accepts a cheque for $4,000 from Maples & Calder Partner Andrew Reid. Also present for the handover were (from left) Kenrick Webster of Webster's Tours; Education Minister, the Hon. Rolston Anglin, JP; John Gray High School Principal Aldin Bellinfantie; and National Museum Education Coordinator Nasaria Suckoo-Chollette.

Thanks to Maples & Calder and Webster's Tours, John Gray High School Year 10 students can continue their weekly excursions into Cayman's heritage at the National Museum.

The law firm donated $4,000 - a portion of which will assist with museum membership for the students, while the remainder will fund some of the museum's educational programmes.

Webster's Tours will continue to donate transportation for the students every Friday afternoon.

"We're really grateful for these donations," John Gray High School Head of Year 10 Chris Bounds said. "They both help the museum and contribute to our children's knowledge of their history."

National Museum Education Coordinator Nasaria Suckoo-Chollette explained that while school-group visits are now free of charge, all students will be charged a $5 entry fee come September 2010. Other individuals and corporate entities are therefore encouraged to assist, where possible, by sponsoring a school.

For more information, call Mrs. Suckoo-Chollette on 949-8368 ext. 2025 or email her at Nasaria Chollette.
