During breaks and lunch we studied the journeys of Shelby, Samia and Myles, three Grand Cayman turtles (fitted with transmitters
to allow them to be tracked) that had nested in Cayman and had now travelled to Guatemala, Nicaragua and Belize respectively.
We also added a page all about their adopted parents, their tagging and their journeys, on our website so that we can all
check back on a regular basis and find out where they are.
You can click on the map below and find out more about the turtle tracking project or view it from our webpage on the
Cayman Islands Turtle Tracking.

Our School Executive Committee - We spent most lunch times organising our school executive committee so that we are ready
to have a general meeting with new and old Club members on Tuesday of next week. Melissa (Smith) submitted this for
the School Bulletin. Melissa and Shawn word processed a list of new members and Melissa prepared an Agenda for the Meeting.
Fund Raising - We also discussed fund raising and Shakeina (Bush) had some brilliant ideas.
Our Pirates' Week Float - On Tuesday after school, Gary our Director, and Mrs Whitehead went to look at the float at
Mr Alvin McLaughlin's house. Alvin has very kindly agreed to loan it to the John Gray Recyclers for the Parade. They
also looked at some of the costumes, at Gary's house, that the John Gray Recyclers are going to 'Recycle' for the float parade.
(Many thanks to Gary's mother!)
On Wednesday, after school, Gary our Director and Mrs Whitehead met with six members of the John Gray Recyclers' Community
Group (Lawren, Cheyenne, Colin, Paul, Raegan, and Marlon). They had lots of ideas for the float and it has been agreed
that Raegan would help Gary and Mrs Whitehead with the float organisation.
Club Organisation for 2003 - Jeremy Forbes (our President) and Mrs Whitehead spent sometime on Thursday after school
discussing our Organisation for 2003. It was agreed to have two school Club Directors, Melissa Brown and Melissa Smith,
and then to have Club Managers responsible for different project areas. It was agreed that Cheyenne and Lawren would
be the Community Managers and Raegan has accepted the position of Public Relations/Publicity Manager.
Club dues - After a group discussion of the new JGR School Executive Committee, it was decided that members should pay
dues to help pay for sundry club needs and Gary made a collection from Chantal, Melissa, Shakeina, Shawn, Mrs Whitehead and
of course himself. It was agreed by the Executive Committee that Gary would collect these dues and act as Club Treasurer
in relation to Club dues.
