ISS students participated in the first Elite Gymnastics club competition at Roche Caiman. The girls performed on the vault, bar, beam and floor. Emma Mothee the director of the Elite Gymnastic club, had organised the competition and had invited former gymnast Montserrat Ubia, an international Spanish gymnastic coach and Olympic judge to assist with this. 5 other judges were trained to judge gymnastic competitions and the International school was represented by Ms Ansell who is a qualified gymnastic coach and former gymnast. The long term aim of the competition is to improve the quality of gymnastic training and performance to allow Seychelles gymnasts to compete internationally in the future.
HATS! and weren’t they wonderful. From berets to sombreros, homburgs to Native American feathers but as usual the bunnies and chicks held sway and outnumbered the large flock of sheep. The classes circumnavigated the school grounds before assembling to sing a rousing medley of hat themed ditties. Parents joined in and then took their children to view the’ eggcellent’ decorated egg display. The event culminated with a Book Fair presented by the Giraffe book store allowing the children and parents to choose some new reading material for the Easter break. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this colourful pageant.
