Triple C School was started in 1941 because of a great need on the island of Grand Cayman for a structured academic education beyond the 6th grade level. The name was chosen by the students in a rather unusual way. The students were asked to write single words on pieces of paper. Each word was to describe some aspect of the school. The first three pieces of paper pulled by Miss Glassman were Creative Christian Character, and thus the school ‘s name abbreviated to Triple C, reflecting the mission and vision of the church, was created.
Triple C has grown from a staff of one with seven children in a little room to a staff of over 70 in a modern facility and more than 476 students. With the current facility, students do not have a designated early childhood space where they can gather for eating lunch and snacks. Instead, students meet for lunch and snack times in classrooms, which means those classrooms are unable to be used for their intended purposes.
The goal of this project is to pay for the purchase and installation of tables and benches in an already established covered porch area. The space will be utilized for lunch and snacks times as well as a study area and gathering space. The total cost of this project is $5,200 and covers all costs associated with creating this space which is part of a larger facilities development. Gifts of any size make a difference!
