St. Ignatius Catholic School in Grand Cayman has twinned with Ysgol Esgob Morgan in St Asaph to mark the occasion and will be depending on their new friends to give the Cayman Islands athletes their support on behalf of kids back home.  The Cayman Islands Olympic Committee and St. Ignatius have provided them with fan hats and shirts, games pins and Cayman waving flags to take with them to London and help them cheer on Team CI.

The schools have been communicating via Skype, blackberry messenger, e-mail, blogs, etc. leading up to the games and the children from both schools are said to be very excited.
While their new Cayman connection may mean a little bit of split loyalties for the St Asaph school children that will likely be overcome by the excitement of going to London. The two schools hope to develop an on-going relationship with the possibility of exchange trips. 

Since the two schools paired up the children in both schools have been learning all about each other’s countries and way of life.
