Vijay International School Praslin
You are not born for yourself...but for the world
Vijay International School, Baie St Anne, Praslin, Seychelles
The new Student Ambassador Programme promotes the school' aims and ethos: "You are not born for yourself but for others". Students participate in various activities around the school to support staff in delivering workshops to younger students. This may involve helping out at break or homework clubs, reading to younger students, attending school trips, helping out in events etc.
Cross section lunch times
Every day is allocated to a student who is doing a-levels. This is a great opportunity for younger and older students to interact with each other. We spend 20 minutes monitoring the Y1 lunches or the reception kids. Just watching them play at lunch also helps the sixth form take an active role in the school community. Thanks to the Student Ambassadors Programme, sixth formers have the opportunity to deepen their ties with the school and its students.
Outdoor Games club -
Every Thursday from 2:00 until 2:30, we help the outdoor games club which consists of students from year 2 to year 4. This is a role that we have chosen to do as a Student Ambassador to give back to our school and help in as many ways as possible. Working with younger children, it is great to see friendly competition pushing them to work better and harder in order to win. We were surprised to see the level of encouragement and support coming from the teammates. We helped the children play games such as kick rounders and hand ball.
