Chasing Skateboards

Education Ministry Chief Officer Mrs. Mary Rodrigues, JP and Police Commissioner Mr. David Baines endorse the collaboration between the Ministry and RCIPS in the government after school programme.

The week of Monday, 8 April 2013, GIS Spotlight goes skateboarding into action, rekindles interest in living green and revisits government's after-school excitement.

Keeping school-goers meaningfully engaged in healthy activities during the critical after-school hours is music to the ears of police everywhere. Yet the cadences ring sweeter when the RCIPS officers themselves can participate in making this a reality.

Now a joint project between the RCIPS and the Ministry of Education is ensuring precisely that. Join GIS Spotlight at Grand Cayman's amazing skate park to see how much the children enjoy this interaction with the police. Meet officers who take time off their schedules to teach many of the kids an entirely new activity.

Next, we look back to draw attention to a coming attraction. Stop with us at last year's Living Green Fair, which the Department of Tourism will again host on 20 April 2013. Learn about what is available in the Cayman Islands to enable you to switch to a greener lifestyle.

Finally, we revisit the entire Extended After School Programme that has become so popular that principal organiser Mr. Michael Myles is constantly seeking volunteers. Learn how you can participate to ensure more youngsters can look forward to organised free time.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight is a government services and solutions programme regarding issues that concern and affect you. The weekly show which airs Mondays on CIGTV on Cable Channel 20 after 7 pm; and on Cayman27 at 8.30 pm on Tuesdays, and 6 pm on Saturdays.
