World book day

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

World Book Day was celebrated in full swing on the 5th of March 2020. Children from reception to Year 6 not only brought in their favourite read but dressed up as characters from their favourite book as well. The parents hard work to come up with innovative ideas was seen through their kids attire. All in all it was a great fun activity for both parents and kids. The whole idea of getting the children to read has definitely moved up a notch! A big Thank you to all for the wonderful efforts. And like Dr. Seuss said-
The more you read,
The more things you know.
The more you learn,
The more places you’ll go!

A-Level Syllabus Poet, Owen Sheers, Visits School

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

This Monday and Tuesday was a special moment for students studying English at KS4 and KS5, along with their teachers. The world renowned poet, novelist, dramatist, film-maker and professor, Owen Sheers, was in school from the 24-25th February 2020 to help our students and teachers get to grips with a range of literary topics.

Starting Monday by spending a whole day working with the A-Level class who are studying his collection, Skirrid Hill, Owen shed light on the stories and processes behind this award-winning collection. Then on Tuesday he did some work with all of Year 10 and 11 on his novel, ‘Resistance’, which was made into a movie in 2011.

The day continued with a screening of his BBC movie-poem, ‘The Green Hollow’ for English and History A-Level students and one last Q&A and debate with the Literature A-Level class.

The day ended with Owen running a CPD staff-training session for our English staff about how to harness the creative process in young people, getting our own teachers laughing and crying as we had a go at writing our own poems.

This visit has been a wonderful opportunity for students to encounter one of the UK’s most exciting and treasured young writers, and for our teachers to see the human being behind an exam text which many of us have now been teaching for ten years.

We greatly look forward to the chance to work with other exciting world-class practitioners from the full range of disciplines in the future.

Beach Clean Ups around Mahe

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Beach clean ups took place this month at Anse Gaulette and Beau Vallon Bay. The International School parents, teachers and students joined forces with the Northholme Hilton , Ocean Project and Four Seasons hotels to clean up the beaches and beach crests. The Ocean Project is presently looking at the litter collected over a period of time and working out the sources for all the rubbish. At Beau Vallon there was a lot of micro plastic and bottle tops and at Anse Gaulette there were many kg of plastic waste and champagne bottles as this is a beach which is popular for weddings and BBQs. The students who joined us with their parents varied in age from 4 to 18 years and all were enthusiastic about the clean ups and keen to do more to create a clean environment for ocean wildlife and for us! Many thanks to all parents and students who joined us to help clean up the world. We look forward to seeing our beautiful clean beaches once again.
