After School Gets Interesting

Government's Extended After School Programme offers a wide range of activities - from making short films and commercials to archery, seen here, skateboarding and table tennis.

The week of Monday, 11 February, GIS Spotlight detains you after school, helps the National Gallery take over the Governor's front yard and then zooms in one more time for a RCIPS chopper evac.

It is always challenging to keep students healthy, safe and out of trouble when school lets out. These days government's robust Extended After School Programme finds fun ways for young people to spend the late afternoon.

The programme has grown from 60 children in 2011 to over 1,400. Join us to see what the organisers are doing right. Hear how 180 enthusiastic volunteers have enlisted to teach their favourite past-times to the young participants. Learn how you can be a sponsor or a volunteer and positively impact young lives and the Islands' future.

After that, we stop at this year's Art @ Governor's show, which showcased some of the best new art produced by local arts and crafts workers and schoolchildren. Discover why this whirl of talent and colour gains in popularity each year, and is now a premier event in the annual arts calendar.

Next, we switch gears and take you behind the scenes, once again, of the RCIPS helicopter emergency medical services. See dedicated officers honing specialised skills to ensure they are ready to save lives in life-threatening situations when speedy, safe evacuation is of the essence.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight is a government services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you. The weekly programme which airs Mondays on CIGTV on Cable Channel 20 after 7 pm; and on Cayman27 at 8 pm on Mondays, and 6 pm on Saturdays.
