Year 6B Outdoor Education lessons

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Students in 6B learnt to classify and identify plants and trees in Seychelles. They looked carefully and made observations about what they saw. All of them enjoyed the hike up to the Port Launay waterfall and can now describe and recognise much of the local flora and fauna of the lower rainforests. The visit to the Biodiversity centre reinforced all they had learnt during their 3 weeks of outdoor activities and the students ended their adventures with a beach trip where they learnt to classify and identify the leaves of endemic trees.

SeyCCats Blue Grant fund for ISS Mangrove Regeneration Boardwalk Project

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Susan Ansell ISS Environment leader has had her small grant application approved by the SeyCCat Blue Grant Committee. This is a project for regenerating the mangrove area by planting and growing mangroves with the help of the students. The project had already started 2 years ago thanks to ISPC who granted initial funding for our Mangrove platform. The new boardwalk will lead from the platform along the school boundary and edge of the wetland and will enable the school with the help of other partners to regenerate the mangrove which was badly degraded over the last few years. The school is already growing mangroves and with the help of Terence Vel Wildlife club leader at the University of Seychelles and Markus from Constance Ephelia Hotels and we have had good advice and a lot of success already. The new walkway will enable students to have better access to study the mangrove habitat and to plant the mangrove seedlings.

One of SeyCCats objectives is to provide the rehabilitation of marine and coastal ecosystems that have been degraded by local and global impacts and to ensure that the Blue Economy is driven and owned by the people themselves to take action to secure their sustainable future.

ISS Wildlife and Eco clubs are already taking action and together with our co-partners in the project Hilton Labriz, Constance Ephelia and Wildlife clubs Seychelles we hope to involve local schools as well as local organisations like the Rising Lions club who are hoping also to help us create a new mangrove forest.

Sea Turtle Festival “Sea Turtle Festival in the time of Covid-19”

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

The Festival this year was held as a Webinair that was the first in its genre bringing students from Mahe, Praslin and La Digue together using the Zoom platform. Guest speakers from various local NGOs and organisations conducted short presentations discussing the different programmes that their organisations are undertaking in regards to the protection of the sea turtle. There were questions after each presentation and students from both Primary and Secondary attended the Webinair conference. It was a very exciting event and the participants were very thrilled to be part of this event. This conference will be recorded so that more students can listen later and learn about protecting the sea turtles of Seychelles.
