img_8317ISS A Level and GCSE Art students along with teachers attended the Big Draw Seychelles event, organised by Arterial Network and sponsored by Hunt, Deltel & Co Ltd on Saturday 8th October at the Kaz Zanana. The panel they designed and painted will be on show with the other panels during the Creole festival. The idea is that all the panels from will be joined together in one long piece.  Their final product is fantastic and they should all be very proud of their days work.  Great art from ISS!


Sweaty in the Swamp!

dscn0668 The wildlife club became undergraduates at the University of Seychelles for a day when they were hosted by Terence Vel who lectures at the University as well as being Wildlife Club coordinator in Seychelles.  The group of young ecologists were appalled to see so much debris left in the surrounding mangroves at Anse Royale!  Something has to be done and members of the club planted manglier rouz seedlings and learned all about the seven species of mangrove in our country, the importance of maintaining mangrove swamps and the threats against their well being.  Time was spent in Terence’s laboratory where the children enjoying meeting young terrapin orphans and saw local killifish (gourzon) and a pickled chameleon!  Terence asked us to plant some mangroves which were ready for translocation and these will be planted at the Sanctuary, Nature Seychelles on Monday.


Day of Peace at ISS

Today ISS joined with other nations
worldpeaceday1around the world to celebrate the International Day of Peace.

The United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.

The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

Students had talks on the day and what they could do to foster peace and awareness as well as being allowed to come into school out of school uniform with a donation to charity.

Some students and staff wore white as a mark of support the goals of international peace.worldpeaceday2
