The eight young stars reminded the Principal to embrace life with child-like awe and wonderment.  Their excited faces and smiles warmed the heart as they recounted their action packed weekends of outdoor explorations, science experiments, sports and the beautiful quiet moments spent reading great novels of adventure.

The Principal looks forward to next week’s stars of the week.

D of E First Aid Training

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews


Last weekend, as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, students from ISS began their First Aid training which will help them in gaining their award and also give them a valuable life skill.  The course covers key lifesaving techniques and gives participants the opportunity learn about the more common medical conditions and outlines the appropriate treatment for adults, children and babies.  The day was filled with many ‘hands-on’ opportunities to practice the skills required to respond to a wide range of emergency situations including wounds, bleeding, choking, sprains and fractures.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the course and now have an increased confidence in assessing accident and emergency situations, providing emergency medical assistance until further help can arrive or a casualty can get to hospital.

The practical course was provided by Anne Rose-Innes from First Care who will be leading further courses at ISS in the coming weeks.

img_9490Primary teachers had the opportunity to engage in a professional development workshop to learn more about recent changes to the  UK (English) curriculum we’re using at  school.   Joyce Hallam, a long standing head teacher from Cumbria, England, joined us earlier this month to share her insight on key areas of change and update.  Her workshop was an interesting and informative opportunity to gain perspective not only on our curriculum, but also teaching outside of Seychelles.

Staff Choir Aim To Sing To Victory

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Earlier this term the newly formed ISS Staff Choir, under the musical direction of Mr Chitambo, received a challenge to help serve the community by taking part in the “Sing For Charity” national competition run by SBC. The first round consisted of 25 choirs with the top 10 going on to compete in final. The Staff Choir did a fantastic performance and qualified for the finals.  These were held on 20th November at the SBC studios with the recordings to start being shown from Sunday 4th December at 9am. The winner of the competition will be decided by a public vote for the best choir which will open on 4th December.


Please support the choir by voting for the ISS STAFF CHOIR and encouraging your friends, family and colleagues to get behind us too. YOUR VOTE COUNTS.

And remember to tune in on Sunday 4th December from 9am to see and hear all the performances.

We will keep you posted on the voting procedure and details.

Well done to all the choir on their performances and achievements so far.  The whole school is behind you!
