Year 3V and 3J Visit Beau Vallon Beach

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Year 3 students visited Beau Vallon Beach to carry out some studies for Geography. This was part of their curriculum work looking at human and physical features of the landscape as well as observing the different rocks in the area. The students worked in groups looking for living and non living things and learnt to observe and record their results. The class were then asked to observe human impact on the local environment both good and bad and in the area studied we saw a lot of evidence of climate and sea level changes . This part of Beau Vallon beach had very little litter but everywhere there was evidence of humans. It was clear though that this beautiful beach was being protected by humans and is still a valuable tourist attraction.

Year One students at Nature Seychelles Sanctuary

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Year 1 students had a chance to do some outdoor scientific explorations at the Roche Caiman Nature Seychelles Sanctuary. Here they were involved bug hunting, dragonfly catching, bird watching and pond dipping. Students were taught how to use binoculars and spotted grey heron, turnstones, grey plover and green heron in the mangrove there. All the students were able to participate in some pond dipping and here at the Sanctuary they spotted killi fish and tilapia lurking in the shallows. The bug hunting was also a popular activity and the students looked in log piles and under stones to find the minibeasts lurking there.

Fantastic Sports at the Stadium!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The children from ISS Juniors enjoyed a wonderful morning of sport last Thursday when they competed in a variety of skills-based activities and events as part of their annual Sports Day competition at the Stade Populaire in Victoria.

Every student participated across five different disciplines and earned performance points that contributed towards an overall total for their House. It was a hard-fought affair, but in the end the spoils went to Desroches (Yellow House) who were awarded the coveted winners cup at the end of the morning.

Part way through the morning the Juniors were joined by children from Year 1 and Year 2 who, for the first time, were able to get a taste for competing in a ‘real’ stadium and thoroughly enjoyed their egg and spoon races , sprints, bean bag throwing and relays. It was wonderful to see our littlest sportspeople having such a great time and being able to show off their skills to the many mums and dads who came to watch and support.

Many thanks to everyone who played a part in making this event such a success – as can be seen from both the photos and video, it was a wonderful experience for all concerned!

“Gong Xi Fa Cai” from ISS Primary

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The boys and girls from Reception 1 up to Year 6 had a lovely day today finding out about Chinese New Year celebrations and learning a little bit of Mandarin and Cantonese along the way. We were awash in a sea of red – which is a colour that symbolises prosperity – and the efforts that the children made to come dressed in colours or outfits that complimented the activities in the classroom are to be applauded. As you can see from the photos we all looked absolutely fabulous!
