President Danny Faure attended the official launching ceremony of celebrations to commemorate 250 years since the first settlement in Seychelles at the International Conference Centre this evening.

As announced by President Faure on 27 August 2018, the celebrations of the 250th anniversary of the first settlement in Seychelles will be held on August 2020. A national preparatory committee chaired by the CEO of Seychelles Tourism Board, Mrs Sherin Francis, was established to spearhead the planning and organisation of the events.

The committee has been meeting regularly and engaging with the population including government, district authorities, schools, and private sector to design a year of unique activities to bring people together and commemorate this important milestone in the history of Seychelles.

In her address, Mrs Francis requested the full support and commitment of everyone. “Together we can remain the nation of peace, a bright example that lives in harmony and embraces its cultural diversity. This is what makes us proud to be Seychellois and this is why each and every one should feel part of these celebrations,” said Mrs Francis.

She also announced some of the different activities confirmed for the celebration, saying, “Today, I am pleased to announce that all of the districts and communities are onboard, and several exciting initiatives are set to take place. The Department of Local Government and the Department of Culture will be organising various activities, but most importantly, will be launching a National Costume Competition. Over the years, there has been debate on whether we should have a National Costume. Finally, after 250 years, we shall have one. From the private sector, Mr Robert Grandcourt, would like to erect a monument on Praslin in honour of all those lost at sea. Schools will be participating in a history fair.”

In closing, she described how the celebrations marked an opportunity to celebrate the diversity and history of Seychelles and for all citizens to participate.

President Faure was given a commemorative plaque of the occasion and officially launched the 250 years’ celebrations. The ceremony also featured a video retracing Seychelles’ history through old pictures.

To note, donation boxes will be placed in schools, hotels and other places to raise funds for the 250 years celebrations. The public is encouraged to donate any amount they wish.

Also present for the official opening was the Designated Minister, Mrs Macsuzy Mondon, Speaker of the National Assembly, Nicholas Prea, Leader of Opposition, Hon. Wavel Ramkalawan, the Leader of Government Business in the National Assembly, Hon. Charles Decommarmond, Cabinet Ministers, Honourable Members of the National Assembly, Members of the Diplomatic Corps, and other distinguished guests.

On September 24, 1804, the second capitulation of Seychelles to the British took place. The capitulation treaty was signed by Commandant Jean-Baptiste Quéau de Quincy and Captain M. Wood aboard the ‘Concorde’. The terms of the capitulation were favourable to the Colony. All conditions proposed were agreed upon except that the British took possession of a brig ‘Zephyr’ which had arrived at Mahé, the day before.
