CAYMAN ISLANDS, Cayman International School

1 Mar

Here we have the lovely bright drawing received from  The Cayman International School, Cayman Islands with a significant turtle (explanation below). Megan Kounnas the schools art teacher did some wonderful work with the schools students and this is the winning result. Well done to everyone involved from the International Peace Quilt Team.

Peace on Earth

Thank you to Troy R. Bajardi,International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Coordinator for helping us to have young people of The Cayman Islands represented.

“It is our pleasure and honor to be a part of this project.  Keep us posted!!”             Troy R. Bajardi Cayman International School

A turtle appears in the Cayman Islands flag’s coat of arms because the Cayman Islands were once known as ‘Tortuga’ (which translates to ‘turtle’ in Spanish), by the pirates who terrorized the Caribbean Sea. The Cayman Islands were called ‘Tortuga’ because the island was crowded with turtles.
