From a chef in the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) to a dishwasher on a cruise ship, now a member of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS), Fabian O'Connor has always been determined to serve.
Today, the Jamaican is a popular figure in the Cayman Islands, signing autographs and posing for pictures with the numerous persons who want to keep a memento of the constable they have dubbed 'the dancing policeman'.
Bombarded daily with images of what the 'ideal' young female should look like, some students at the Corporate Area-based Ardenne High School have moved to redefine those stereotypes.
The students, with the support of teachers, are riding a wave of natural hair at the school, with at least 17 nationalities and as many religious denominations involved.
Most of us are guilty of judging and embracing the negatives instead of focusing on nurturing and empowering the positives. According to society, 'good hair' means curls and waves and 'bad hair' is equivalent to looking like a slave. At the turn of the century, many are trying to redefine this norm and find out who they truly are and love themselves in their purest form. Embracing Your Roots Club at Ardenne High School is a natural-hair club, which focuses on reversing the eurocentric curse, empowering young women, building confidence, acknowledging their worth, and improving the relationship the girls have with themselves.
A group of 25 French-Canadian high school students from Polyvalente La Samere in Quebec are scheduled to leave the island today after spending three weeks attending classes at Ardenne High School in St Andrew.
The group, accompanied by three chaperones, arrived earlier this month, staying with families of Ardenne students in the Kingston and St Andrew area. The visit of the Canadian students was partly funded by grants from the Canadian education ministry.
Over the years, Ardenne alumni have bonded together in an effort to promote and enrich the academic, cultural, physical and social development of Ardenne. They have also built fellowship between one another, while serving the needs of the school community, by way of organized Past Students Associations.
