World Theatre Day 2019

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews


What a busy, exciting and creative day for our Junior and Senior students spent celebrating the theatre arts for World Theatre Day 2019!
All students who participate in weekly performing arts clubs with Ms Georgie at ISS, seized the opportunity today to work together on the stage at ICCS, in acting, singing and dancing disciplines.
The annul Performing Arts show is just around the corner so many students are working hard developing the skills required to shine in the spotlight when they perform on Wednesday 17th April 2019.

The goals of World Theatre Day, as with International Dance Day are:
• To promote the art form across the world.
• To make people aware of the value of the art form.
• To enable the dance and theatre communities to promote their work on a broad scale so that opinion leaders are aware of the value of these forms and support them.
• To enjoy the art form for its own sake.

Every year the Executive Council of ITI choses an outstanding theatre personality to write the message for World Theatre Day, which has been celebrated internationally every March 27th since 1962.
The author of the Message of World Theatre Day 2019 is: Carlos CELDRAN, Cuba

Thank you teachers for your assistance and support in this event.

Big Draw at Eden Art Space

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

On Saturday 23rd March a group of students from ISS and their art teachers, participated in a, ‘Big Draw’ event at the Eden Art Space sponsored by Arterial Network Seychelles (ANS). This year’s ‘Big Draw’ theme was, ‘Games’ and it was decided to create a giant Snakes and Ladders game board with famous historical and political characters climbing the ladders or sliding down the snakes. Students from ISS as well as students and their teachers from the Independent School and Plaisance School all worked together to bring the, ‘Snakes and LAdders’ board game together and the final result as you can see was a great success!
Each school is going to receive a large scale printed version of the board game, plus we have been given the actual board, as ISS had done most of the preparation work. The size of the work is large at 3 metres by 3 metres, so we will need to find a suitable home for it. In the mean time we are hoping it can go initially on display in a public space for all to see.
