Christmas Miracle in the Early Childhood Show

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

“A Miracle in town” was a rare chance to see over 200 talented children singing and dancing in the International Conference Centre Seychelles (ICCS).  The EC Team teachers helped the students prepare for this extravaganza and parents and friends enjoyed the performance of camels, animals, stars, angels, villagers and toys.  The narrators for this traditional story from Year 2 spoke clearly and explained what was happening as the audience were introduced to innkeepers, shepherds, kings, animals and camels.  There were lots of other surprises on the way to Bethlehem and the students clearly enjoyed their first taste of the limelight.

Many thanks to the PTA who helped with the decorations for the show and a big thank you to ICCS staff who supported us through the practices with lights, sounds, decorations and stage management.

img_0274-4Being recognised for doing something well awakens a beautiful feeling that warms the heart.
Recognising children for the good they do sets them in the right mental and emotional state to build their self esteem and self confidence.
This is what the Principal has seen transpire in the stars of the week that she has met so far.
They are excited, confident that they can achieve more and determined to carry on giving their best.
Well done stars of the week.

This was the second week that ISS students, who are working towards their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, completed their First Aid training.  A new cohort of students practiced emergency medical care to unsuspecting patients. The course covers key lifesaving skills and gives participants the opportunity learn about the more common medical conditions and outlines the appropriate treatment for adults, children and babies including wounds, bleeding, choking, sprains and fractures.

The practical course was provided by Anne Rose-Innes from First Care who will be leading further courses at ISS in the near future.

 

 

Wildlife Club’s Successful Fundraising!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

dscn0822The Wildlife club raised funds to help the recovery programme for the Seychelles Magpie Robin.  This endangered bird captured the hearts of our young naturalists and they organised a Bring and buy Sale at the school.  Children brought items to sell and bargained hard with their young customers to sell at top prices the books and games they had donated.  The club were delighted to find they had raised over 3000 rupees and the money will be used on Aride island to make new nest boxes.

Island Conservation Society accepted the cheque gratefully.   The Wildlife club hope to visit the birds one day and see them in person!
