World Wetland Day 2020

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Enthusiastic members of the Wildlife club were joined by teachers and interested secondary students to celebrate World Wetland Day 2020 by planting 200 mangrove seeds. The seeds were kindly provided by Ephelia hotels and red and yellow mangrove seedlings were placed in plastic grow bags and packed together in containers to protect them from crabs. The boxes of seeds were then placed at low tide into the wetland where they will be provided with brackish water by tidal movement. The students have been learning about the importance of wetlands and clean up the ISS area of wetland on a daily basis.

‘Talking Climate Chaos’

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Secondary students from ISS were invited to attend the ‘Talking Climate Chaos’ fair held at the Unisey campus Anse Royale. Many partners in Seychelles had joined together to talk about the effects and impacts of climate change. The aim of the conference was to raise awareness of the challenges of climate change and how to be climate smart. During the morning students attended presentations in the Manchester theatre and were fascinated by the numerous and informative exhibitions. The pupils were particularly keen to see the winning secondary schools projects from Anse Royale, Beau Vallon and Perseverance. These inventions were explained to our pupils in great detail. The various NGOs and ministries answered questions from our ISS Eco warriors and we were particularly interested to see the steps being taken to protect and armour the many wetlands in Seychelles. We all agreed that all our pupils would have benefitted from attending this illuminating day. Congratulations also to the 3 young students from primary who danced at the opening ceremony.
