Class 2 Corsairs

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The bold pirates of Class 2 boarded the good ship Anahita and set sail for the mystical island of Moyenne.  Their annual quest to find the Pirate Grimshaw’s treasure was underway.  Landing on a high tide on the pristine shores of the ‘jewel of the inner islands’, they quickly set off to find the buried chest.  Past the pirate graves and pet cemetery they braved the guardian giant tortoises.  They scoured the dense jungle of native trees and eventually struck lucky.  The treasure trove was uncovered and shared among the crew.  Retracing their steps they returned, tired, hot and happy to their ship.  They’ll be back next year.  Thanks to Masons Travel and Moyenne Island Foundation for helping the jolly crew complete their mission.

International Duke of Edinburgh Award

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Nineteen of our year 12 students have successfully completed the Final Expedition component of their International Duke of Edinburgh Award Bronze Level.
The very tough, but highly successful two day hiking expedition started yesterday when the students set off from ISS, having set themselves the challenge to hike to Le Niol to then complete the Dans Gallas Trail then return to camp in Bel Ombre. It took the students between 6 and 9 hours to complete this arduous journey and thankful the weather had been kind.
At the campsite the students then set up their tents, some prepared a fire and cooked a wonderful meals before heading to their tents; exhausted. An early start for the students in order to pack away their camp and prepare for the next leg of their journey; a 5 hour hike which included Bel Ombre and parts of Mare aux Cochons before finishing in Victoria.
The students have proved their determination and ability to work together and motivate one another over the course of the award. Each student must be proud of their achievements as the award must certainly be ‘earned’ and they all deserve the success.
A huge congratulation to everyone who took part in the expedition and a big thank you to all staff that have supported them along the way.

French Activities

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

La Fête de la Francophonie is celebrated on 20th March each year. It celebrates the French language and the diversity of cultures linked to this language all around the world. Years 7A and 7B had the chance to go for a visit at the Alliance Française des Seychelles. They were able to obtain some information about services offered at the Alliance française, (library, workshops and other activities). They also visited an exhibition about ‘Dis-moi dix mots sur la Toile'(Tell me ten words about the web). Moreover, it was also the opportunity for these classes to place their French poems onto the arbre à poèmes (poem tree).

Aside visits, the Club de Français has been quite active, embracing Francophonie, by participating in the Chasse au Trésor ”En quête de la Francophonie” (The Francophonie Quest). Les scorpions, a team of four students, (Antonia Ah-Kon, Grizelda Bibi, Bion and Mia Maria) practised the French language during this very exciting event about the French History of Seychelles, on Saturday 18th March. This event was an appetizer to the Fête de la Francophonie celebrations of the Alliance française. These ISS students proudly represented the school and improved their language skills during games, organised in the afternoon, on the 20th March, at the Alliance française.

The Club de Français is looking forward to participate in other activities soon, such as La Fête de la Musique in June.
