Finding Cultural Treasures
This week (14 November) GIS Spotlight finds treasures at the archives, reviews a new therapy approach and revisits kids as they participate in safe activities.
Who was Annie Huldah Bodden and what role did she play in Cayman's history? Come with us as we find out at the Cayman Islands National Archive.
Hear from the first nominated female member of the Legislative Assembly and learn a thing or two about the kind of woman she was.
Then, we're off to the Lighthouse School where man's best friend shows us yet again how he earned the title. We meet the rescue-trained Border Collie Murphy who provides a new approach to therapy for special-needs individuals.
Finally, we revisit the new afterschool programme featuring a plethora of activities including sports, performing arts and hands-on lessons that are equal parts fun and usefulness.
See how some 800 students are becoming healthier, fitter and more wholesome children in a fun and safe atmosphere. Find out too how you can volunteer your time to the public-private sector programme and influence a young person's life for the better.
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.
