Richard Pitman, Head of KS4&KS5 Art&Design, Amanda Amade in Year 11, Shamara Adams in Year 7 along with Angie Geehan from the Arterial Network Seychelles, attended a press ceremony at Penlac today to say thank you to Mr A Gafoor Yakub, Chief Executive Officer of Penlac and his staff for the kind donation of paints. Students at ISS are currently using the paint to create school Eco-Murals which when finished will be displayed on the school walls, highlighting the different terrains and effects that humans have on these environments in the Seychelles, from the mountains, forests, mangroves to the sea.

Big Draw at Eden Art Space

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

On Saturday 23rd March a group of students from ISS and their art teachers, participated in a, ‘Big Draw’ event at the Eden Art Space sponsored by Arterial Network Seychelles (ANS). This year’s ‘Big Draw’ theme was, ‘Games’ and it was decided to create a giant Snakes and Ladders game board with famous historical and political characters climbing the ladders or sliding down the snakes. Students from ISS as well as students and their teachers from the Independent School and Plaisance School all worked together to bring the, ‘Snakes and LAdders’ board game together and the final result as you can see was a great success!
Each school is going to receive a large scale printed version of the board game, plus we have been given the actual board, as ISS had done most of the preparation work. The size of the work is large at 3 metres by 3 metres, so we will need to find a suitable home for it. In the mean time we are hoping it can go initially on display in a public space for all to see.

World Wildlife Week

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

A number of speakers came in to talk to the primary children during the
week. We were lucky to have a visiting vet addressed the Wildlife club
about caring for their pets. Alice Hurn from the UK also spoke to a group
of 5th formers about how she became and vet and what prospects and
expectations they would have if they entered this profession.
Later that week Ben Taylor came to speak to Primary children about
Endangered animals in the Seychelles. 784 species in Seychelles are on the
ICUN red list and of these 190 are considered to be threatened species! We
hope that by educating the children about their environment we can help to
conserve these precious animals, plants and birds
