On Friday 14th September, 6E led the weekly junior assembly and this week their chosen theme was ‘Clean up the World!’ The class used the opportunity to show some of the marvelous creations which they had made using items which would have otherwise ended up in the bins; as well as showing posters to remind all the students of ISS how to be more ecologically friendly. The highlight however was a screening to the rest of the juniors of the News film which they had created together in class. Well done 6E!
ISS participated in Clean up the World week and teamed up with Ocean Project, STIF and LMWA to put on Seychelles Biggest Beach Clean up . Students, teachers and parents of the school got together with locals of Baie Lazare to clean up Anse Gaulette just one of the beaches in this project.
59 adults and children worked tirelessly for over an hour removing a wide range of bottles, cans, plastic bags, tissues, burst balloons, bottle tops and broken glass from the beach crest and surroundings. Plastic bottles were sorted separately and everyone was horrified to see how much litter was polluting this beautiful beach. Plastic pollution is a massive problem in our oceans today and the participants were encouraged to say ‘No to Plastic’ whenever they can. Children who participated will receive certificates and we wish to thank the parents, teachers and children of ISS who joined in this tremendous effort as well others in our community who helped in the clean up of the other 24 beaches in Seychelles that were targeted on the 15th September. Let’s keep our beaches clean and stop single use plastic!
“This Wednesday, a group of 15 International School Seychelles’ students from Years 10-13 attended a guided tour of State House and its grounds. The group learned about the history of the building and its place in the nation’s history, as well as its uses today. We saw portraits of British royalty, pirates and past presidents, giant tortoises, statues and a mausoleum. This was a very special peek behind the gates of one of Seychelles historic buildings.”
