JOHN GRAY RECYCLER NEWS - JULY 2008 - Please check out the amazing work done by the John Gray Recyclers over two months from September to November 2003. They continued to make a very big impact on their environment locally and globally during 2004 and visited Fiji in July 2004 with the Seacology Foundation to see their Naikorokoro Kindergarten project come to fruition. Unfortunately after Hurricane Ivan devastated Grand Cayman in September 2004 these loyal JGRs were unable to continue at the same level due to the great lack of facilities.
When hurricane Ivan devestated the Island of Grand Cayman on 11 & 12 September 2004, a recovery programme for the endangered Blue Iguanas was started immediately by Fred Burton and more information about our endangered Blue Iguanas can be found at their website  www.blueiguana.ky/
The Year 10 John Gray High School students stayed at Pastor Al Ebanks' Agape Worship Centre on Fairbanks Road for seven months before returning to John Gray High School when the Year 12 students had left for study leave in May 2005. We will be forever grateful to Pastor Al, his wife Sister Kathy, and all the wonderful people who gave us encouragement and support whilst we were at the Agape Worship Centre.
Much work is still going on at the John Gray High School. Students ate under tents until September 2005 as the Canteen was badly damaged during hurricane Ivan and will not be rebuilt.  The drama classrooms and some PE facilities were inside the canteen building and have been destroyed. The canteen and many other classes now take place in temporary classrooms.
The John Gray Recyclers, who started  this Journal, and worked so hard with their many local and global environmental activities, spent much time on academic work once they returned to school after Hurricane Ivan. 
 
Melissa Smith a very active John Gray Recycler before Hurricane Ivan has now become the John Gray Recyclers' Community President for 2007 - 2008 and is actively preserving her environment by plastic six pack holder recycling and introducing an environmental club into the school she is working at currently.
