Biodiversity Day May 22nd
ISS students joined Plaisance, Mont Fleuri, Cascade and the School for the Exceptional child in a visit to the Biodiversity Centre at Barbarons. Our guide introduced the students to many fantastic endemic and introduced plants. The guided tour of these beautiful gardens made a lasting impression on our eco students from Year 6 some who had already expressed a keen interest in becoming botanists!
The day continued with a Biodiversity exhibition at Orion Mall attended by ISS students and prizewinners of the SIF Aldabra Clean up competition. 3 students at the school came away with prizes. Congratulations to Keith Francoise who won the art section by making a turtle out of plastic waste and to Jamie Hill and Mattias Valentyn whose essays were also prizewinners for both lower and upper secondary sections of the school. ISS would also like to note and acknowledge the success of two ex ISS students, Sheena Talma and Jeremy Raguin who were there at the prize giving ceremony working hard for the Seychelles Island Foundation and the Ministry of Biodiversity.
