(CNS): For the third year in a row service club Rotary Sunrise has delivered over 600 dictionaries to year seven students at all government and private schools in the Cayman Islands, officials said Tuesday. Rotary Sunrise President JD Mosley-Matchett and Literacy Committee Member Woody Foster presented the books to year seven students at John Gray High School (JGHS) on 11 September and to Clifton Hunter High School on 13 September. It will continue distributing the dictionaries to private schools over the coming week.

Since 2011 Rotary Sunrise has delivered the UK version of the Usborne Illustrated Dictionary students as part of the Dictionary 4 Life Project, an international initiative in support of universal literacy

“My three year old son’s favourite book is a picture dictionary which we read on a nightly basis,” said education minister Tara Rivers. “I hope the students receiving their own personal copy of the Usborne Illustrated Dictionary will enjoy the book for years to come.”
