Mangrove planting

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Students from Year 6 and Year 5 participated in more mangrove planting on July 6th. The school mangrove nursery has plants stored in containers both on land and in the wetland area which were ready to plant. We decided to wait till a low tide and students braved the mud to relocate about 30 plants in front of the mangrove platform. We also planted new seedlings in large fruit trays packed together in soil to prevent crabs from damaging the young plants. We hope that the new mangroves will grow tall and strong and help to protect our school grounds and provide a safe habitat for the birds, fish and reptiles in the wetland. Thanks to the students who volunteered to help.

Beautification of the school grounds – Art class projects

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

To celebrate the diversity of ISS and brighten up the walls of the ISS carpark art students worked with Ms Esther and Ms Doris to improve the appearance of our school campus. We have a great number of different nationalities represented by pupils at the school and Year 9 students drew body shapes and painted them in the colours of the different flags of the world. These art classes are currently working on Street art and were inspired by Keith Haring’s work to do the silhouettes before painting them. Year 8 classes captured our school wetlands in bright colours studying Trash Art as they decided to create a 3D wetland as well as a coral reef to raise awareness of ocean pollution. Year 7 pupils are working on windows and the ‘looking out on the world” windows open up onto different worlds or issues.
