Year 2 Trip to Pirate Island

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The Year 2 Pirates visited Moyenne Island on Friday 28th March. Accompanied by Pirate Simon and Captain Danny of the good ship Anahita. The crew comprising of Year 2S and 2L pupils sailed from Port Victoria to arrive on the island in good time for a snack. After this the children explored the island and were amazed to find giant tortoises roaming wild. The many endemic plants and trees on the island were planted by Pirate Brendan Grimshaw who was the owner of the island for 40 years.

He had been a good friend to ISS and would have been pleased to see so many enthusiastic children enjoying the island which has been a National Park since 2008. In 2012 the island was bequeathed to the Moyenne Island Foundation society which is a non- profit NGO and they are responsible for the islands management.

The children looked for treasure and found the treasure chest near the main house. The wardens showed the children baby turtles and tortoises and the day ended with lunch on the beach, sandcastle building and football. Tired but happy students returned to Mahe in the catamaran kindly provided by Mason’s travel. Many thanks to them and to all the parent helpers. Read the full story to see more pictures!

A Runway success

The valliant firecrew at Seychelles International Airport hosted Year 2 this week for a trip that is firmly established as a much anticipated annual event. Following security checks to allow us all ‘air-side’, the children were treated to a guided tour of the firestation and a demonstration of equipment and how to ‘suit-up’ in the confines of the cabin of a moving fire-engine. We then clambered aboard the fire-engine and sped down the long runway with some white knuckles evident. As we got ready to go back to school we sang a song to the friendly firemen to show our appreciation for allowing us such a fun insight into their exciting job.

Early Childhood Nativity

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The International Conference Centre Seychelles (ICCS) was the venue for the Early Childhood Christmas Show.  The eager cast performed “The Nursery Rhyme Nativity” to a packed auditorium on December 4th.   The audience were treated to a visually spectacular performance of an amended nativity tale where Mary and Joseph encounter on their way to Bethlehem a travelling circus.  The whole Early Childhood Section played a part and entertained everybody with lyrical Christmas songs with familiar nursery rhyme tunes.  The hour long show was as enjoyable to present and perform in for the children and appeared equally enjoyed by the parents and families who had come along to watch.  As producer and director of the show I am greatly indebted to everyone who assisted in the production.  The EC staff for their hard work coaching their classes, preparing the masks and assisting with the art work, Amalia Herrara Grau for helping with the huge task of decorating the large stage, Lorraine for the choreography of the can can dancers, Mrs Senekal for painting the circus figures and of course the PTA for their continued support.
