World Wetland Day February 2nd 2019

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Students in ISS from the Primary Wildlife clubs took part in a clean- up of our local wetland area. The old gate was opened to reveal some very amazing mangrove plants and trees where we collected manglier rouz seeds to replant in our nurseries. The eco warriors collected 4 bags of rubbish from the area and we are sure that the many animals and birds in this habitat will appreciate our efforts. We were then proud to plant out into the mangrove some of our red mangrove seedlings which are grown in the nursery in recycled water containers, as well as in the mangrove swamp in specially designed trays packed with mud and seeds. Both methods have proved to be successful and further planting should restore our local mangrove area. Work has commenced already on our mangrove platform so do please come and visit the garden area and explore a little. So far so good!

Eco Clubs Turtle Monitoring in the Deep South

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Secondary Eco club and Primary Wildlife club were up bright and early Saturday morning to stake out the beaches in the SW corner of Mahe. The big hope was to encounter a nesting hawksbill turtle and given that it was the peak of the season hopes were high. In the back of the minds of the intrepid group was the rare chance of being present at a nest hatching. Despite the endurance of blustering heat and bright sunshine the Eco clubs were unlucky on this occasion but saw plenty of evidence of recent nest sites and at Grand Police missed a nesting by an hour. Maybe we should have got up earlier! Many thanks to Sharon for driving the bus.
Warm Regards,
You are not born for yourself, but for the world…

A very Merry Christmas from everyone at ISS Primary!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The children in Primary were very excited to receive a super-special visitor into their classrooms yesterday – and thanks go to Santa and his amazing helpers for taking the time out of their busy schedules to fit us in!
Santa questioned the children about whether they had been good this year, and many of them explained how they helped at home and listened carefully to mum and dad (yes, apparently they do!), so on the basis of all this evidence, Santa was happy to hand over a gift to each and every class.
Yesterday was a lovely day for all of us, so thank you for your continued support – it really is appreciated 👍😃
