Audiences over the moon about “Over the Rainbow”!!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews


Congratulations to all the students involved in the senior school production of ‘Over the Rainbow’ on Friday 18th March. All tickets for the event were sold out, with profits going towards the 2017 school production.

Mrs Nicholls would like to thank all the teachers and parents for their support in the process. A special thank you to all the performers for their incredible progress through out the year, giving up their free time to rehearse, showing excellent commitment to the school and Performing Arts.
The cast of ‘Over the Rainbow’ had their first audience last week, when the Junior school came to watch the dress rehearsal. Following this performance, the juniors were invited to take part in a day of theatre workshops lead by the main senior cast. The workshops included learning a song and dance from the show and learning acting skills to portray each of the lovable, memorable characters from the Wizard of Oz story.

EC children’s playground was brimming with suspense in expectation of another ISS hat parade spectacular.  Children from Mexico, Japan, Ireland, Hawaii, Seychelles, France and near neighbours Madagascar all raised their hats in style and performed their national dances to the delight of the audience.   Coinciding with International Day of Happiness and the imminent Easter celebrations  the festive spirit was palpable.
Well done to all the contributing nations and their teachers and a very happy holidays to everyone!

Science Week Poster Competition

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Students in year 7, 8 and 9 took part in the UK Science week from 14th to 18th March 2016 by participating in a nationwide Seychelles poster competition.  This competition involved creating posters to highlight the positive and negative influences on the biodiversity of the Outer Islands in the Seychelles.

Students explored scientific concepts in their science lessons, brainstorming the keywords and the effects that humans can have on the number of species living on and around the Outer Islands, both to decrease and increase the diversity. Students then worked on their posters in their science and art lessons and as part of their homework.  Their final works of art have been submitted to the Ministry of Education ready for judging and we will wait to hear if any of our students have won prizes at the end of April.

Damien Laporte has again proved that he is amongst the best under 14 tennis player on the African continent by winning the singles title of the African junior championship in Pretoria South Africa.

In the final, Laporte beat Nigerian number one player, Michel Osewa, 7-5 and 6-4. This is another feat for this young tennis sensation who has won the best tennis award locally twice in a row.

According to his manager, Laporte was also supposed to be playing the doubles finals but will probably have to forfeit the match as his partner, Kenyan Ryan Ranbeik, is out injured. Laporte is expected back in Seychelles this weekend.
