EGG HUNT AND KITE FLYING
The egg hunt was real fun for us. We searched the school compound and found several colourful eggs which contained money and candies.
With favourable weather,our kites went up with no problem. We flew the kites for a long time in the school compound. The fun ended when when one of the kites crashed on the roof .
To all you kite flyers, remember to fly your kites away from overhead electrical wires.

Our theme 'Arawak Indians of Yesteryear' was well displayed by the traditional Arawak clothing, face painting, feathered headdresses, and jewelry. This festival was well supported by the locals as well as tourists. It was real fun!

Despite an enrollment of four students, (reception, Yr. 1, Yr. 2, and Yr 6) Little Cayman Education Services again had our Annual Christmas Program at the Baptist Church. Our theme this year was ' We Four Kings'. We sang many Christmas songs and dramatised the birth of Jesus Christ. This event was well supported by the community. To make the program more school/community friendly, participants were drawn from the congregation, who readily accepted to do a skit or two.

I could hardly sleep last night because I was so excited about the Be Very Afraid Exhibition at BAFTA in England, where people from around the world came to see work by students in ICT. I reached school at 4:30AM. I had video conference with the students from Stepping Stones, people from Zambia, Norway, and all over England. I took pictures of those I communicated with and made a collage that is posted above. I also e-mailed some to Mr. Jonathan Furness. I am enjoying every moment of this wonderful event. Moreover, I have my family, friends, teachers, and officers from the Ministry of Education to see me in action with this 21st century modern technology.

The Land Hermit Crab uses a shell to protect its delicate body. The shell is sometimes that of a land snail when the crab is young, but usually that of a marine snail (whelks). Once deceased, the snail's body decomposes and the empty shell eventually washes onto shore. The Hermit Crab can then occupy the shell. Larger shells are necessary as the crab grows, but that growth is quite slowly.
Hermit crabs are very particular about their shells and shell switching is not uncommon as the crab searches for the perfect shell. A desired characteristic of that shell is an opening about the size of the large claw, plus about 2 1/2 - 3mm (1/10 in to 1/8 in) all around (more for larer crabs). When threatened, the crab withdraws into the shell and blocks the entrance with the large claw.
Fierce shell fights can occur if the shell supply is not adequate. The loser often dies since many hermit crabs will not release their grip on their shell until they are torn apart. The loss of limbs in shell fights is common, but may not result in death especially since the hermit crab can choose to drop a limb to disengage from from the conflict.
This crab is called 'The Soldier Crab' in the Cayman Islands. There delicate bodies (gut) are mainly used as bait for fishing. The remaining parts, claws and shell, are smashed and thrown into the sea for 'scent', which is a way of attracting fish to your desired location. These crabs are plentiful in Little Cayman as they are fed daily by the locals. They will eat 'left-overs' (rice, bread, meat, vegetables etc...) If they are stored in a bucket, a cover must be placed, slightly open for ventilation, because these crabs work together to climb on top one another as a way of escape.

The West Indian Whistling Duck is between 20 and 24 inches tall, and weighs about two and a half pounds.
Normally a night feeder, the West Indian Whistling Duck spends daylight hours roosting in mangroves, woodlands or swamps.At dusk they fly to their feeding grounds which are usually ponds surrounded by thick vegetation or seasonally flooded grasslands. The ducks are largely vegetarian, feeding on fruits and seeds of grasses and other plants. They also eat freshwater snails, however, and even develop a taste for tadpoles!

Hello, I'm the teacher's assistant at Little Cayman Education. I am a mother of three boys ( twins 15 yrs old, and a one yr old). I like to play tennis everyday. I love teaching because it helps me with the upbringing of my boys. Living in Little Cayman is wonderful because of the peace and tranquility that surround it.
