A Site for Education

At the official opening of the Clifton Hunter High School

The week of Monday, 22 April 2013, GIS Spotlight brings you a new beginning in education, but also takes another look at after-school excitement, and the work that is being done to nurture a precious wildlife legacy.

School buildings are a capital investment usually applauded by the public. This is because they play a key role in the development of tomorrow's leaders. The latest such campus to officially open is Clifton Hunter High School in North Side.

Join us for the opening of these spacious new facilities. Take a tour to discover the architectural and technological features that distinguish this campus and learn how students and their community will benefit from its ample amenities.

Next, we revisit another exciting service offered by the Government education system - the highly popular extended afterschool programme - which is keeping hundreds of students occupied during the hours after the school bell rings. See the variety of activities that officials offer to help private and public sector volunteers administer to engage students in novel and interesting ways.

After that, take another look at a Grand Cayman success story which is helping to save the Island's largest land reptile from a grim future.

Hear from the warden of the Blue Iguana recovery programme about the inroads made so far and how much more needs to be done to ensure that future generations of Caymanians can continue to co-exist with this magnificent reptile. Discover how fragile the future of the Blue Iguana may become without active human intervention.

Produced by GIS Marketing and Communications, GIS Spotlight is a programme about government services and the issues that affect you. The weekly show 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.

All stories seen in the week's GIS Spotlight can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
