Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

We are proud to announce that Mikhail Rudchenko of Year 10 from ISS has been selected by NISTI to be a part of “Team Seychelles” to represent Seychelles at the First Global Robotic Challenge.

National Institute for Science Technology and Innovation (NISTI) has selected total 6 students from different schools for the First Global Robotic Challenge.

The FIRST Global Challenge is a yearly Olympics-style robotics competition organized by the International First Committee Association. It promotes STEM education and careers for youth and was created by Dean Kamen in 2016 as an expansion of FIRST, an organization with similar objectives.

We wish Mikhail and ‘Team-Seychelles’ good luck for the Competition.

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.
