  • Activities for International School Library Month 2015

    Schools in Seychelles celebrated the International School Library Month from 19th – 30th October 2015. Even if, the activities pertaining to the event were meant to take place during the month of October, the Ministry of Education decided to further lengthen it to the beginning of November. Various activities were organised at school level, with the aim of promoting reading and the use of the school library.
     
    At national level there were two major activities to mark the occasion. First the Ministry of Education was celebrating 35 years of the official existence of school libraries. An exhibition entitled “History of School Libraries in Seychelles” was held on the 21st October to commemorate the event. It was a success as most schools both from primary and secondary took part in the very colourful and informative exhibition. Its opening was well attended by ministry officials, head teachers, teachers, librarians, students and other invitees.
     
    For this special occasion a lunch was organised for the librarians at Moloko Restaurant from 1.30pm onwards.
    A two day workshop entitled “Animations en Bibliothèque Scolaire” was organized for the Primary and Secondary schools librarians on 21st and 22nd  October respectively. The objective of the workshop was to encourage them to use French during the library activities.
     
    Ms Zitabella Labiche, an Assessment Officer responsible for French in the Centre for Curriculum Assessment and Teacher Support facilitated the workshop. The librarians found the workshops to be very fruitful and are looking forward to have more sessions of this kind.
