Bank backs martial arts special programme

| 11/06/2013

(CNS): Cayman National is joining a list of local sponsors to back the Purple Dragon Martial Arts scholarship programme for local youngsters who have been identified as having special issues such as behavioural problems, physical challenges or coming from disadvantaged homes. “We have been inundated with reports from families, social workers and teachers who have seen the improvement in children from this programme,” said Sensei Floyd the owner of the martial arts school as he thanked the latest sponsor. “Purple Dragon provides a foundation for personal development and growth. It also helps children apply structure and discipline to their lives,” he added as he explained the need for the support.

“For every sponsorship of a child’s participation fees by generous companies such as Cayman National, their lives are positively impacted,” Floyd said.

Sponsorswill gain a contract from each student, committing to regular attendance and timeliness, maintenance of school grades and behaviour reflecting respect for individuals and property. Scholarship sponsors will also receive twice-yearly reports from the Purple Dragon teachers, parents, school and counsellors, tracking the performance of their student.

“Cayman National is delighted to be a part of the Purple Dragon Scholarship programme, as we believe this will significantly improve the lives of our young people by encouraging mental and physical growth through challenging times,” stated Christy Braggs from the bank.
