Year One Museum trip

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Year One students visited the recently opened National History Museum in Victoria. Miss Mary and Miss Louises classes have been studying local history and were able to observe and discuss displays in the museum which told the story of Seychelles. The students were fascinated by all the exhibits and spent time drawing the large model sailing ship ‘La Minerve’. Museum staff Karl and Natalie led the groups around the museum and answered the many questions that the inquisitive children asked. The pupils learnt a lot about life in the past in Seychelles and were fascinated by the Portugese canons and pistols and loved the pictures and artefacts which showed how people used to live. Many thanks to the Museum for welcoming our enthusiastic young learners.

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

It was definitely a case of hats off to the children, teachers and TA’s of the ISS Early Childhood department this morning, as eight classes sang and dance their way across the whole of the world. A sizable audience of proud parents, family friends and children from the Junior section were treated to a range of music and costumes from countries as far away as Hawaii, France, the USA, Brazil, the UK, Egypt and Zambia, with Miss Vivienne’s Reception 1 class ensuring that we all paid tribute to the amazing country in which we live by dancing a traditional Seychelles Sega. Thanks to everyone who attended, and in particular to the amazing performers – the children! They were absolutely fabulous 😉

STEM activities are continuing at pace. Here, yr7 students enjoy a demonstration of the 2018 FIRST global challenge team Seychelles robot. Some students had chance to take control of the robot.













The robot was brought into school by Joseph Raj from the National Institute of Science Technology and Innovation.







The yr7 students were surprised to learn that robots are already being used here in the Seychelles. Mr Scales, computer science teacher, added he thought it will be a long time before robots replace teachers in the classroom.

Year 6 Record-Breakers!

The Year 6 residential visit to Praslin claimed a record this morning as all 48 children and 7 teachers managed to travel on the Cat Cocos ferry without anyone needing the dreaded plastic bag! Strong stomachs indeed – and crossed fingers that the return journey on Friday proves to be equally calm and tranquil.

The children were full of excitement and enthusiasm for the days ahead when they will visit La Digue and Aride in addition to enjoying activities on Praslin Island itself. As you can see from the photos, the children were raring to go and even the prospect of an early start didn’t dim their smiles.
