Ministerial Visit to the International School Seychelles

As the end of the year approaches, the Minister for Labour and Human Resource Development, Ms Idith Alexander’s tour of private sector businesses and institutions has been going well. On Friday 17th October, she conducted her 26th visit of the year which was to the International School Seychelles.


The Minister, accompanied by officials from her Ministry was greeted by the Principal of the School, Mr Karl Wilkinson and Chairperson of the Board of Governors, Mrs Laura Valabhji. The Ministerial delegation was taken on a tour of the school, during which they were introduced to various members of the staff and student body.



The visit covered all forms, from kindergarten to Sixth Form. At each of the locations visited, the Minister interacted with staff members, most of whom expressed satisfaction with their present conditions.

At the end of the visit, a meeting was held between members of the International School staff and the Minister’s delegation. The main issue discussed were contracts of employment and remuneration packages. Mrs Valabhji assured the Minister that the school has already laid out a new salary structure, which will entail different grades of pay based on various factors such as prior work experience, education level, etc.

According to Mrs Valabhji, this new structure will be communicated to the staff shortly. This was well-received by the Minister, who emphasised that communication is an important factor within workplaces.

As with previous visits on her tour, the Minister brought to Mr. Wilkinson’s and Mrs. Valabhji’s attention the scholarship financing programme that the Ministry of Labour is working on in union with ANHRD. Mr. Wilkinson and Mrs. Valabhji expressed intrigue with the idea.

The Minister re-emphasised her desire for increased co-operation between the government and the private sector and the meeting closed with her assurance to Mrs. Valabhji, Mr Wilkinson, and the staff of her Ministry’s support and assistance.

Mrs. Valabhji, Mr. Wilkinson, and the teachers in attendance expressed their sincere gratitude for the Minister’s time and attention on these matters and voiced their interest in closer ties with the Ministry of Labour.
