Creole Architecture with Year 2

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

During Creole Festival week Year 2 students visited two fine examples of old Creole architecture at Au Cap.  The children marvelled at the old fashioned interiors at the Creole Institute and in the Val Domain du Pre.  Both houses were built at the end of the 19th century and were plantation owner’s houses.  The children investigated a traditional kitchen and saw how people used to cook, wash and light their homes.  Pupils were interested to see how Seychellois used to play music  (old gramophone) and recognised  a very unusual antique telephone.  The adventure continued with a walk through the estate grounds looking at different varieties of crabs in the mangroves .  We ended up on the beach looking for tec tecs ( a small clam found in the shallows delicious in soup!).  Unfortunately Creole Cuisine wasn’t on the menu that night as we didn’t find enough of them!

International School Junior Wildlife club

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The  Wildlife club has been active as usual this half term.  The children chose what they wanted to investigate and in the last few sessions we have encountered both living and deceased creatures.  We have been looking at endemic wildlife and were happy to have a praying mantis visit us at school last week.  She entertained the group by performing  happily in the classroom.  She left us with an egg sac which was hope will hatch.
