Over the years, CUC's employees have established a special relationship with students from The Lighthouse School, which caters to the Island's physically and mentally challenged youngsters. The visits coincide with three special events during the School year, namely:
CUC's volunteers assist with the School's Annual Sports Day as the students get a chance to compete against each other with everyone coming out on top at the end of the day. Students participate in numerous events such as sprints, obstacle races and three-legged races. With the school's three houses, Snappers, Barracudas and Stingrays, vying for supremacy in the "sea of competition", all athletes finish the day as champions. As well as playing the roles of official scorekeepers and field judges, our volunteers serve as cheerleaders throughout the day.
Easter Egg Day
Every Easter, we travel with our hard-boiled eggs, glue, glitter and dye to the School as the student's creativity continues to impress each year as they go to work on beautifying their eggs. As glitter filters through the air and new dye colours are created, the students transform the Easter bunny's eggs into elaborate works of art for all to see. Add a portion of tasty Easter candies and treats along with a special appearance by CUC's mascot, Sparky, and you end up with a perfect Easter outing.
Christmas Stocking Day
During the Christmas season, Sparky braves the Island heat bearing Christmas goodies for the students and stockings to decorate. With extra supplies of glitter and glue in his bag of goodies, Sparky assists his helpers with spreading the Christmas cheer as the students set to work on customising their stockings. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, the students are rewarded with holiday season goodies and our employees are thanked with a spirited cheer.
