Cayman Islands Government

Student Enforcers

Sir John A. Cumber Primary School students interact with a police officer during the RCIPS Junior Police Academy.

This week (Monday, 20 June) GIS Spotlight steps out at the latest Junior Police Academy, gets active with school students, and learns more about medical training at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC).

Our first stop is West Bay's Sir John A. Cumber Primary School where students attended the second instalment of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service's Junior Police Academy.

Hear what students learned, plus we ask Police Commissioner David Baines why it is important for students to understand police work.

Obesity is the next generation's biggest health challenge. According to the World Health Organisation, less than a decade from now, weight-related heart disease, cancers and diabetes will account for a sobering sixty percent of all illnesses in the world.

Moving along, we visit public schools to see how public-private partnerships such as Health4Youth and the new after-school sports programme aim to turn things around in Cayman by empowering students to make healthy choices for a better life.

Next up is a look at another exciting course that is on offer at CIFEC. We follow future healthcare aides and nursing assistants as qualified nursing educators supervise their hands-on experience at the Cayman Islands Hospital.

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

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.

Comments and suggestions about the programme are always welcome. Viewers can provide feedback by e-mailing Spotlight@gov.ky.
