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!

Year 2 visit to Avani Hotel and Spa Barbarons

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Avani Hotel Barbarons invited Year 2 on a fact finding mission at their hotel. Our main aim was to do a beach study and the children were excited to find 2 types of crustacean and many shells and corals. We were treated to a guided tour around the hotel to see the luxurious Spa as well as the slightly less glamourous waste water treatment plant. Year 2 children have been learning about water purification and we were interested to see the hotels systems. The children enjoyed a tasty lunch at the end of the day.

Many thanks to the Management of the Avani Hotel who made this trip possible.
