Under 15 squad go barefoot!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

In the absence of Seychelles Football Federations’ schools  fixtures at this time of the year the ISS under 15 squad participated in the inaugural Beach football tournament at the newly constructed pitch at  the Stade Linite complex.
F.I.F.A. officials including Suketu Patel of F.I.F.A. Africa were present among the spectators as 4 local school squads and 2 teams from ISS  enjoyed the competition and  the new challenge of deep sand  5 ‘a’ side.  It was fast, furious, fun football in sweltering conditions with a Lucas hat trick for ISS in our final game being the highlight.  We’ll be back for more experience of the beach version of the beautiful game soon.

Year 2S and 2L visit the National History Museum

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Children in Year 2 visited the National History Museum. They were looking at the old Creole style houses and studying the artefacts that were used in an old Seychelles kitchen. The children were excited to see the canons and were interested to see ‘La Minerve’ a beautiful model sailing boat. The museum had a lot of different sections to interest our young students and most of the pupils hope to visit the museum again with their parents to show them what they have learned.

 

Wildlife club and unexpected birds in the Seychelles

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The Junior Wildlife club paid a visit to some new wetlands on Perseverance Island. They were lucky to spot the white flamingo there. This bird is rarely seen in Seychelles and may have flown off course. Flamingoes do breed on Aldabra and this flamingo probably arrived from there. It may stay until March if the food supplies stay plentiful. The children were excited to try out binoculars to see the great variety of wading birds in the area.

Another rare spot by Wildlife club members was a peacock running up the Les Canelles hill. We hope it found its way home!!
