Wednesday was a joyful day filled with celebrations and happy faces. Around 2.30 pm, the Year 6 students arrived with their families, and they were pleasantly surprised to see the arrangements made by their teachers and other students.

All students received their graduation sash and achievement certificates. There was entertainment presented by the Drama Club, followed by poetry recitals, a speech from a proud parent and a thank you note by a graduating student.

Nursery Graduation Day

Our nursery graduates make us so proud today. The hard work they have put In all year with the support of those around them has made it a year of incredible growth for them, all while having a lot of fun. Each pre-schooler is unique, yet each has experienced and overcome their own unique challenges of speaking, sharing, moving away from diapers, spoon feeding, listening and following instructions given by their teachers. It has been a privilege to watch each child grow throughout their preschool experience.

They also got the chance to say goodbye to their classrooms where they spent precious time with their classmates and teachers. It was a day of mixed emotions. We invited all our parents in small groups to enjoy the graduation ceremony and got a chance to mingle with others. Some parents had tears and some were overwhelmed when they went through their term work and watched the journey video for the year.

Let’s have a glimpse of their overflowing cuteness during the joyful celebration!

The students, parents and teachers had been preparing for the last week to get the float and costumes ready as well as practice for the parade, which was amongst the stand-out processions in the parade.

It was such a pleasure to have the First Lady, Mrs. Linda Ramkalawan visit our float and spend precious time with our students.

Happy Children's Day

Let’s make this Children’s Day extra special by celebrating it uniquely. “Your example is one of your Children’s best teachers.” Let’s constantly model good manners and the best behavior teachers for our kids. Let your kids witness how respectful you are by speaking politely and using words like “Can I,” “Please Can I,” “Thank you,” and “I’m sorry.” Let’s impart manners to them. Let’s educate them on proper and improper physical contact, and let’s show them compassion. Let’s establish rules at home and follow them.
A child needs your time and love more than anything else in the world. Make your child feel special every day, not just on Children’s Day. A very happy Children’s Day to all of our kids. Let’s have a glimpse at some of the activities.

Christmas Celebrations

Amazing musical production and Christmas performances!

The lovely tale “You Are Special” serves as a reminder that kids are priceless just the way they are. Everyone enjoyed watching it because it was such a terrific motivating narrative. When it comes to conveying to kids a message of love, kindness, respect, and acceptance of who they are, it doesn’t get any better.

Additionally, our kids gave wonderful performances, and we sang Christmas songs, which have always been a special part of school children’s life. Our staff surprised everyone with a performance, which was the icing on the cake.

Welcome to our gardening club

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”

At Trotters Stop the children enjoy planting, looking after and harvesting their own vegetables. Last year we grew tomatoes, green chilies, pumpkin, lady finger, cucumber, beans, and hope to do just as well this year!

Each year every class is allotted their own raised bed to look after. We are firm believers that the school garden is an amazing outdoor classroom tool with endless benefits for students that will extend beyond the classroom and long into their adult lives.

Lots of activities can be taught in the garden, and we don’t necessarily need fancy tools to carry out lessons. But we do need your help and support with seeds, small plants, black plastic small pots for seedling, small tools and whatever you think can be recycled and useful for our gardening club. Let’s see our children’s and their teachers hard work and soon our garden will be blooming!

School Trip

Our Year 2 students recently took a wonderful trip to Round and Long Island.

Children were so excited when they heard that their teachers have planned an ‘Island Hopping’ adventure as they were learning about ‘islands’ as part of their curriculum.

The trip began in a Glass Bottom Boat and took us from the Marine Charter to Long Island. On our way we fed so many colorful fish, bright corals and even swam.
A highlight was a unique walk along the sand bank connecting Long Island to Round Island.

We would like to thank our staff, parents and moms who helped us to make this a memorable day for all!

Thank you for the great response to the children’s work the teachers had on display and we’re glad you enjoyed touring the classrooms. We appreciate your positive feedback and very encouraging comments to staff for their hard work during and after the lockdown.


Mrs. Verma

Dear Parents & Guardians,

We had every reason to spread some extra cheer this unprecedented year and that is exactly what we did.

We wanted to give you a magical experience and memories that would help us all look back at 2020 with a little more hope and happiness. This year, we put on a beautiful musical play entitled “Repunzel” and brought you brand new Christmas songs to take you through the holiday season.

As we approach the end of the first term at our new school, it gives me great pleasure to write this letter to you. There have been a lot of exciting activities going on at the school and the children have certainly been busy. I am sure they have been reporting back to you everything they are doing here daily.

Children are practicing songs for our Christmas Concert and here we are with our Musical Play!

Halloween & Creole Festival

Duo celebration of ‘Scoopy Halloween’ and ‘Creole Festival’. Let us unleash our Halloween inspiration to celebrate the day in a safe, fun, unexpected way!

We have loads of tricks in our bag of treats! We played games, read scary stories, had costume contests, goodie bags, candies, and scavenger hunt houses. Mr. Valentin and Mr. Vincent did on came all the way to show us how to make straw hats and baskets with palm leaves.

How witches and ghosts make merry and can have so much fun! Thank you to all the lovely parents for their generous contributions to make the event even more memorable.

Have a lovely midterm break! See you on the 3rd of November!

Tippi Toes

From Cartwheels to Confidence!

Children grow up so quickly and their bodies need to be able to take the rapid growth in their eager years. These gym classes enable them to channel all that raw energy and reach their developmental milestones.

At this age, they’re ready to make a huge leap and to participate in classes without Mum and Dad. Having discovered the joys of independence, they’re eager to do “what the big children do.” But they still learn best in a structured environment where gymnastics, other physical activities, and all aspects of learning are combined with a healthy dose of fun.

Our classes focus on: 

Classes are conducted throughout the new year. Please contact the school office for more details. 

Past events

The Tooth’s Dental Education initiative.

Our special thanks to Dr. Maria (Adriana’s Mum) for educating children about the importance of maintaining proper dental health and a beautiful smile.

Dr. Maria showed us how to practice strong oral hygiene habits at an early age and how it is so important for us to eat fruits and vegetables every day.

It’s nice to see our children’s curiosity and their interest in the things displayed at the museum. We really appreciate the enthusiastic and passionate team for their efforts in explaining the history of Seychelles to our future historians!

Thank you everyone.

Teaching is not service, profession or a job, it is a pillar of society.

Thank you Miss Deepa (Reyon’s Mum) for baking the cake for us and all the parents for their beautiful flowers, cards and gifts for the staff 

Have a blessed weekend!

Lets raise our children to live in harmony, without fear, without prejudice and without violence. we must contribute to building a culture of peace. Let us all celebrate Peace Day everyday. Have a look at our Peace Day Parade.

Fun, active holiday activities at the Trotters Stop!

Kids club enriching activities that gave children the opportunity to socialize with others and promote their well-being. New Children in Nursery got a chance to settle down in the environment during the kids club. Children are happy and very excited with their day-to-day routine in a Covid-secure way.

To show our gratitude and appreciation for our teachers, for their hard work, patience, commitment, and passion, we presented them with awards of achievement.

Our ‘Star Performer of the Year Awards’ go to Miss Michel and Miss Bhakti. However, so many more of our teachers were appreciated with gift vouchers for their continued commitment to our students.

I have always said that teaching is a calling and I would like to say a big ‘thank you to my entire team for all the wonderful work they have done this year.

Please join me in wishing them every success and giving them the support they need to help every child reach their full learning potential.

Wishing you all a wonderful and safe holiday.

The Year is Over!

Let’s celebrate our children’s successes! I can hardly believe that this is it! there has been pride, amazement, astonishment, and yet more pride. Children were thrilled to receive their achievement awards as much as we did! As a team, we wish you all a fantastic summer break and we pray for a continuation of this glorious weather.

With best wishes,

Trotters Stop Family.

Children’s Day at Trotters stop!

We celebrated our children today; their achievements and how special they truly are to us all. it is our mission to help them to grow into happy, loving, healthy, and caring adults. The games and goodies are of course an added bonus!

A big thank you to our wonderful parents who helped make this day a success and a beautiful memory for us all.

It was such a treat to watch our students entering school again with big smiles on their faces. Some of them just ran to their classrooms without even saying goodbye to their parents!

Clearly, we all needed to see our friends!

We have spared no effort to prepare for this new norm – cleaned all surfaces, washed all indoor and outdoor toys, disinfected the playgrounds and the entire school building.

Each classroom has been cleaned and rearranged according to the department of health guidelines. Our teachers are educating children about social distancing and the importance of hygiene on a daily basis. We need to be patient as everyone gradually gets back into the swing of things.

Please be advised that we have received approval from the Commissioner of Health for the school to re-open on 11th May 2020 for reception, nursery, and primary classes as well.

We hope you and your families are well and keeping safe. Given recent developments and in the best interest of the health of our students, staff, and community, we are extending the closure of the school from 30 March to 3 April 2020. Please note that school will now reopen after the end of term and Easter holidays on 20 April 2020. We are here to support you and will continue to provide homeschooling resources as needed. A ‘home learning study pack’ for students in Primary 1 to 5 classes has been prepared and will be sent shortly.   Meanwhile, some online resources are available on the Parents page which is particularly useful if your child is in Nursery to Reception 2 classes.

A Mock Fire And Evacuation Drill was conducted at the Trotters Stop to create awareness among students to respond swiftly in times of emergency. The fire alarm rang out loud and alerted everyone. The students immediately evacuated their classrooms, led by their teachers and assistants. They exited from various points to assemble in the playground. It was an essential life skills workshop and hand-on-experience for all of us, keeping in mind our children’s safety and security.

Well done Students and Teachers!
