In honour of Child Month (May), LIFE ran three one-off Partners in Print (PIP) workshops at  Sir John A. Cumber, George Town and Prospect Primary Schools. PIP is a parent-involvement programme in which parents, teachers, and children work together to build key skills and strategies aimed at improving the literacy of Key Stage 1 students (4-7 years old). 


These workshops are aimed at encouraging parental involvement in the development of their child’s literacy at a critical stage in their development.  “It is very informative and helps parents to understand and appreciate the value of reading. It also helps to demonstrate the value of working with their children in building literacy,” said Ms. McGlaughlin, a teacher at Sir John A. Cumber Primary who assisted with the workshops. 


Altogether, more than 75 parents and a few grandparents attended the three workshops. In the 2013-2014 school year, LIFE hosted multiple PIP workshops in 9 of the 10 government primary schools on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. In addition to providing snacks and refreshments for the participants, LIFE also gave each child a new book to take home at the end of the night.
