GVI and Year 4

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Year 4 students from 4C and 4L enjoyed meeting the volunteers who are working for Global Vision International. As part of their outdoor learning for this year both classes explored animal habitats and life cycles of various sea creatures. Pupils hiked to the waterfall at Port Glaud visiting the mangrove boardwalk on the way and discovered 3 of the 7 types of mangroves in Seychelles. The sessions ended with a day of beach activities where everyone had lots of fun

First Global Robotics Competition – Team Seychelles Selection Process

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

 
The ISS Team (Mikhail Rudchenko, Ronan Varsani, Toshani Khanna) had to present their design and control program for a robot. They also had to manoeuvre a robot, getting it to pick up a solar panel and two boxes, carrying them from one point to another. The final step was to get the robot to start a windmill spinning.

We wait to hear if they will be chosen to be in Team Seychelles, which will take part in the Finals of the competition in Dubai in October 2019.

SILVER EXPEDITION

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Our inaugural silver expedition started at the school, towards Sans Soucis road and eventually ended at Bel Ombre primary school, at around 3 pm.

The second day was switched to accommodate a student Mykyta Moisieiev, who is completing Bronze, but needed to also be present at the graduation. The second day was rather short as we went up the Dans Gallas trail and back to camp.

The third day, Sunday the 16th was the longest and torturous yet the most enjoyable trail. We went up Mare aux Cochons, trail to the national park and back down via the painful endless staircase around Le Niole. Students cooked their own food and took care of their environment.

The students were upbeat and full of humour all through. They were well behaved and displayed teamwork. Assessors were impressed with this aspect and told me afterwards that they were pleasantly surprised at the standard of behavior.

They are required to complete reports on the expedition and send them to the D of E through me prior to receiving their silver awards.

I have handed over their tracking sheets for scrutiny and they should be awarded their silver qualifications soon.

Special thanks to the accounts, to Mr. Obst and the nurse for making the event smooth.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement.
