Filed in: Environment

St. Ignatius Catholic School and Cayman Prep & High School

In 2007, grand prize winning students for Disney’s Planet Challenge included the Year 3 class from Cayman Prep and High School and the Year 6 class from St. Ignatius Catholic School, both located in Grand Cayman.  Winning classes showed exemplary environmental skills through innovative and impactful projects that included radio announcement encouraging the protection of endangered animals and visits to local parks and coral reefs to explore the native environment.    

Winning Projects

The third-year class from Cayman Prep and High School learned more about the importance of clean water by taking field trips to local parks and exploring the area’s coral.  Through their art class, they designed a coral reef replica using recycled materials. 

The sixth-year students at St. Ignatius Catholic School were able to reach out to thousands of Cayman residents by scripting and recording a series of radio announcements focused on environmental issues that were broadcast daily over Cayman radio.  Through their radio announcements, they were able to raise more than $600, and contributed this to the Cayman Wildlife Rescue to further advance environmental protection.
