Sister Islands educators recently gathered to launch the new school year, with last week's orientation session attended by top officials.
Even as their counterparts on Grand Cayman similarly prepare for classes, on Thursday, 25 August, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman teachers were welcomed back by Minister of Education the Hon. Rolston Anglin, JP, Chief Officer Mary Rodrigues and Chief Education Officer Shirley Wahler.
Minister Anglin challenged all stakeholders to ensure that students live up to their unique abilities and potential. He announced that the Brac's Early Childhood Unit is now functioning, and that the Further Education Centre continues to offer opportunities for technical/vocational qualifications.
While noting the strengths of Brac schools, Ministry of Education Chief Officer Mary Rodrigues encouraged teachers to raise the bar even higher.
Chief Education Officer Shirley Wahler offered practical guidance on how educators can achieve excellence using the "Good, Better, Best" mantra adopted for the school year. She said, "By data-pooling and collaboration, teachers can leverage their strengths and work 'smarter' to ensure the success of each student.
