Tree Planting Day 2020

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

I.S.S. students from all sections of the school marked the World Tree Planting day by a concerted effort to increase the tree population in the school grounds.

30 new trees have been added to the schools register as well as a future 20 mangrove saplings in the wetland. The Early Morning gardening club dug in a few papaya trees, Year 6 pupils took advantage of the low tide to sink some mangrove saplings that had been cultivated in grow bags in our nursery, Year 8 added new varieties including a Zapot and a Rainbush and Reception 1A planted an incredible 20 trees donated by parents of the class. R2A planted and danced round a Mulberry bush singing a predictable song “Here we go round the Mulberry bush”.

The Primary Wildlife club wound up the days’digging by adding a lime tree to our rapidly expanding garden – a gift from Stellas’ farm in Val D’en Dor. Many thanks to all the students and parents who supported this very important initiative.

ISS CLEAN UP THE WORLD WITH GRANDE ANSE SCHOOL

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

A joint venture between ISS students and Grande Anse School heralded this years “Clean Up the World week” in Seychelles. Year 6 students met up with the Grande Anse team with a clear mission to collect the flotsam, jetsam and litter from the beach crest and adjacent wetlands. The haul of single use plastic, bottles, cans and the ubiquitous flip flops soon piled up and the 24 strong squad were amazed to see a final total of around 50 kilos amassed. Thank you to Grande Anse school for providing refreshments, to Ocean Project for providing bags and gloves and to LWMA for removing the collected salte (rubbish). Well done to everyone
