Expedition Aride

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

 EA1Intrepid ISS Wildlife Club sailed the high sea to the furthest North of the granitic islands. En route we spotted rays, sailfish and many dolphin!
Aride is a paradise for nature lovers and is home to much of our rare endemic flora and fauna.
The adventurers were guided by ranger Juan who pointed out the islands’ treasures which include Seychelles Magpie Robin, Wrights gardenia and skink, bronze geckoes, fairy terns, shearwaters in their burrows, intoxicated blue pigeons, large hermit crabs (one in a coconut shell), Tropic birds, Seychelles fodies and warblers. The tour was topped off at the viewpoint 300 feet up where thousands of greater frigate birds filled the air. Aride became the antithesis of its name as the heavens opened on our descent to the plateau.
Licia Calabreze, island conservation officer then briefed the children on the Magpie Robin situation on the island and thanked them for their generous fundraising for the Recovery programme.
Many thanks to the Manager Uzice Samedi for encouraging the trip and to the island staff for making us feel so welcome. Big thanks also to Mrs Mondon for organizing our transport to Aride.

Year 2 visit the Airport Fire Station

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Year 2 pupils enjoyed an exciting visit to the airport fire station.  They were delighted to see 2 brand new fire engines and we were so lucky to witness a fire drill.  The firemen dressed rapidly and sped off in their fire engines in 41 seconds!  Wow quite a feat!

All the children and parents who came along were invited to a ride on the fire engine down the runway – an unforgettable experience for everyone.

Many thanks to the firemen, Dave and Darren who showed us around and explained about fire equipment to the children.

The EC swimming gala is always a popular event and gave the Early Childhood children a chance to show off their swimming skills.  Parents and friends came to watch the young swimmers racing at the Roche Caiman pool.   The morning heats were finished off by some really excellent swimmers diving in and racing across the 25 m pool.

Many thanks to all the parents who attended and supported the Gala and to the Mahe Skimmers club who donated juice to the competitors.

Everyone gained a Super Swimmer award for their performance.
