National Speech Competition Winners!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

We have the great pleasure of announcing that the team of Fedor Soloviev, Estelle Bonnelame and Catarina Holst accompanied by Anastasia Pantazopolous achieved first place today in a hotly contested National Speech Competition today. There were 17 teams who entered the competition and today they came 1st.

They were interviewed afterwards, in shock, by SBC and will feature in national newspapers. They will receive their prizes on 3 July in a formal ceremony along with Praslin School who received 1st Place for the 16-19 age range.

Miss Boughey is one very happy and emotional teacher – it hasn’t sunk in just yet with any of them.

It was great to see parents and staff there to support them – and once again thanks go to Mrs Pillay for pushing the team to enter as well as Miss Yolandi, Miss Warren and Mrs Fock-Tave for working with them to polish their performance.

Well done team!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Dear Parents,

The school holidays are fast approaching, we would like to inform all the parents that who has credit facilities with us that invoices of the tuck shop will be issued to your children on the Monday 29th of June.

We would appreciate if all payments were done by Tuesday the 30th of June .

Please note that from the 1st of July till the 10th of July when the school closes we shall not be giving credit, due to that fact that when the school goes on holidays we are always having difficulty of getting paid, there are parents that even pays us on the opening term, unfortunately we cannot entertain that anymore as we need the funds to able to keep the tuck shop running.

In September when the school reopens the credit facilities will be available.

Thanking you for your understanding

Kind regards
Mrs Marzocchi

On Saturday the International School Seychelles held its annual Achievement Evening at Eden Bleu Hotel, Eden Island. This wonderful occasion marked the culmination of many years of hard work and dedicated study by our exceptional group of Year 11 and Year 13 students, many having been at ISS for 10 years or more since early childhood.

Following thought-provoking and inspirational speeches by the Principal Mrs Margaret Pillay, the Chairperson of the Board Mrs Laura Valabhji and Keynote speaker Mr Nick Baldwin; a former student of the school and now a world class triathlete, the ceremony progressed to the issuing of the Year 11 Record of Achievement files by the Form Tutors Mr Simon Armitt and Mr Matt O’Shea, coordinated by the Head of Year Mr John Meyer.

In an addition to the programme for 2014, Subject Awards were also presented to students who had demonstrated exceptional academic achievement or who had made significant progress throughout their two year IGCSE courses.

ISS World Environment Day

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

World Environment Day is celebrated around the world on June 5th. In ISS we all participated in various activities to raise awareness and we also launched recycling points in school for plastic bottles and cans.

Children in EC took part in some activities outside school. Year One children planted trees at Ephelia Hotel and Year Two were looking at the beach at Avani Barbarons. All classes went for an Environmental walk around the school grounds and discussed ways of helping to save the

world. In class many marvellous activities using recycled materials took place. Children made treasure jars, toilet roll octopus, paper cup animals, box monsters, vases and flowers and beautiful newspaper artwork.

The Junior section did lots of learning about the waste we produce and had talks from Sustainability for Seychelles (S4S) about the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and also a talk from PUC about water conservation. Classes also made a range of art and craft by recycling old junk!

Children made plastic bottle turtles, toilet roll mobiles and cars, egg carton butterfly garlands, plastic bottle planters, bird feeders and bags, newspaper woven party bags and much more.

Children also wrote a promise about what they can do to help look after the environment. Year 6 visited Praslin and planted trees at the Vallee de Mai.

Pupils in Year 9 did a workshop with Michele Martin from S4S on sustainable tourism. They learnt about the concept and then designed their own eco hotel based on a specific brief and

then presented their ideas.

Work is still displayed around school so please take a look when you come in!
