Biodiversity Day May 22nd

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

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.

”Hurry, Hurry Drive the Fire Truck!”

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Last week children in Reception 2 went for a fantastic educational visit to Seychelles Fire and Rescue station. They have been busy learning about the important role firefighters play within our community. Whilst at the station we had the opportunity to watch the firefighters’ practice for the upcoming National Day Parade. The excitement continued as we met firefighter Paul who was keen to recruit some new team members! Lucky Thane Confait got the opportunity to put on the uniform and become a real firefighter!

After learning about how brave and courageous the crew are and asking all those burning questions, we had a look at some of the different engines in the station and all the tools and equipment required for the job. The climax of the visit was having the opportunity to squirt the powerful hose and take the obligatory ride in a fire engine! ‘’Hurry, Hurry drive the fire truck’’ was sung throughout the Early Childhood section for the rest of the day!

Many thanks to firefighter Paul for the exhilarating morning.

Year 8 students visit SSPCA

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

A group of the Eco Club students who helped to raise funds for the SSPCA went along to deliver a cheque of the money raised at their Bake Sale. The cheque for 6114 SR was gratefully received and will go towards building more outdoor exercise areas for the many stray dogs at the centre. At the moment there are 145 dogs and puppies and 25 cats and kittens! The enthusiastic animal lovers all ended up cuddling the young animals and 4 of the pupils are keen to volunteer at the SSPCA in the future. Anyone who wishes to adopt a puppy or kitten can call the SSPCA or visit the centre any weekday morning.
