Pirates' Day Float Parade 2000 as described by the "Caymanian Compass"
"A libidinous iguana was one of the main attractions at this year's John Gray Recyclers float. The Iguana had the Pirates
Week crowd roaring with laughter at his antics.
STUDENTS PROMOTE RECYCLING
A group of students from the John Gray High School recently worked alongside Department of Environmental Health staffers
to put together a Pirates Week float which emphasised the importance of recycling.
The group, known as the John Gray Recyclers, was founded in September 1996 by concerned students and their teacher,
Mrs Christine Whitehead. Since then, youngsters from the government high school have taken part in science fairs, beach clean-ups
and workshops. However, their involvement with Pirates Week only started last year, when they won a second-place prize.
This year's entry picked up a third-place award, with a float theme, "Enjoy, Don't Destroy: Recycle." More
than 21 students took part in the effort.
The team is already looking forward to next year and wants to promote even more active recycling in the Cayman Islands,
according to Mrs Whitehead. (GIS)"
