Magical Marine Life at Eden Aquarium

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

MarineLife (1)The Year 3 classes thoroughly enjoyed an exciting, informative and magical trip to Eden Aquarium today. Classes peered in clear tanks to see vast varieties of coral, fish and marine life and were given lots of information about how they live in the Indian Ocean. We even saw the deadly stone fish and learned about it’s poisonous bite – scary! To round off a great trip pupils and teachers enjoyed a refreshing ice cream from the plaza ice cream shop. A great end of year trip to say farewell to some pupils leaving the school at the end of the year.

World Environment Day

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

IMG_7558ISS celebrated World Environment Day throughout last week with a number of exciting activities. Pupils from R1 up to Year 5 heard all about how we can look after turtles from the Marine Conservation Society. They even got to see some turtle carapaces and saw lots of photos and films all about turtles. The Junior section had further talks about living more sustainably from S4S and about protecting our coral from GVI. All classes got involved in recycled art projects too, showing off how we can up-cycle our waste. Many thanks to everyone involved. We hope that by celebrating Environment Week with exciting events we are reminded to look after our environment every day.
