Kindergarten students are proud to present their parents with some living work, some pictorial works they have done and their class life during the open house which takes place on Wednesday morning before each holiday period.

You will find some photos of Wednesday April 18, 2018 opposite.

An organic vegetable garden was set up with Aurore de Sensibio and the pupils of CM1 and CE2 in March 2018.


In March 2018, CM1 students had the pleasure of participating in a class transplanted to the south of Mauritius.

The opportunity for them to learn differently and to discover their immediate environment.

A big thank you to the two teachers who carried out this beautiful educational project!

All students of the school benefit from swimming sessions (from PS to CM2) at the Riverland swimming pool which is accessible on foot.

  • In kindergarten, the main objective is to become familiar with the aquatic environment.
  • In CP and CE1, the students perfect their propulsion and immersion in a fun way and start to work in endurance.
  • In CE2, students are introduced to swimming with flippers, a mask and a snorkel.
  • In CM1, they practice in particular the rescue in an aquatic environment.
  • In CM2, several swimming techniques are worked.


On March 9, 2018, the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of Mauritius was celebrated at the Paul and Virginie school. The morning started with a ceremonial ceremony in the presence in particular of Mr.Gobin, Minister of Justice, and Mr. Jean-Marc Cassam-Chenaï, Advisor of Cooperation and Cultural Action of the Embassy of France in Mauritius.

Songs, dances, slam, poetry and various pictorial works were presented by students to the delight of spectators.

Before the Mauritian meal, Lespri Ravann gave a concert, funded by the APEP, within the school, the opportunity for the students to discover the séga and its characteristics.

A wonderful moment of sharing!

In February 2018, the first test of the GS / CP mathematics rally took place.

This event was developed by GS and CP teachers from the four French curriculum schools in Mauritius. CM2 students were used to supervise the test. These are groups of students including students from the three classes of CP and two classes of GS who tried to answer the problems. The results are very positive, the second test will take place in May 2018.

On Friday December 15, the parents' association (APEP) offered a show to the students of the school.

Thus, we were able to discover two exceptional circus artists!

 Meanwhile, Santa Claus came by and left a bag of books for the library.

Then, a big snack took place funded by APEP.

From December 6 to 8, we prepared the Cap Tamarin Christmas market.

For the occasion, three frescoes were painted with Devid and the students of the school. Two mandalas were made by GS and CM1 students with colored rice. On market day, December 9, many students came to participate in the Christmas choir at Cap Tamarin.


For the past few years, we have been setting up a calendar to wait for the Christmas holidays all together. This year, it is the pupils of CP2 who carried out the calendar and piloted the project.

Each morning, when the elementary classes were grouped together in the courtyard, a surprise of the day in French or English was offered by a class or a group of children. We had jokes, songs, puzzles, charades ...

The two classes of CM2, the two classes of CE2 and the two classes of CE1 were able to go to the Porlwi by nature festival which took place in Port Louis from November 29 to December 3, 2017.

The pupils of the classes of CM2 presented, with much kindness and motivation, experiments on air and water to the other pupils of the school on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 November. The younger ones seemed very interested. Bravo to them, a great moment of sharing!

As part of the Porlwi by nature festival, students from the two CE1 classes prepared origami fruit with two artists. You can pick them from a tree at Aapravasi Ghat from November 29, 2017 to December 3, 2017. It was a great moment of sharing with listening artists!

On November 20, 2017, we celebrated the International Day of the Rights of the Child.

Before that date, a lot of work had been done in each class on the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This Convention was adopted by the United Nations (UN) on November 20, 1989 to protect the rights of children worldwide and improve their living conditions.

With the collaboration of all the children of the school, we managed to make a film, watch:


This year, Friday, November 10, we commemorated the 99th anniversary of the First World War armistice.

Thank you to the CM2 students for this very successful moment of sharing on the occasion of the commemoration of November 11, 1918. As they said so well: "Peace is fragile, it is simple to lose it and you have to fight to keep it!"

CE2 students finalized their sequence on the Tamarin plan, in English, by going to the field on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.


During this first period of the 2017/2018 school year, the teaching team worked in order to allow each student to know the staff who are important to them within the establishment. Naturally, each student now knows who their teachers are, the documentalist who welcomes them once a week, the sports teacher, the school life manager who manages the supervision and the extracurricular, the receptionist who calls the parents, the nurse and the psychologist, the director but also the technical and maintenance staff who allow us to work in good conditions. So the cleaning lady of the class introduced herself to the class that she is cleaning so that the students respect her and respect her work.

A whole project on politeness has been carried out: we would like each student to be able to say naturally the "magic words": "hello", "please", "thank you" and "goodbye". Several classes made a poster on these words. Students voted and elected one that will be displayed in each class and on school signs.

On Wednesday October 18, 2017, the kindergarten classes opened their doors to parents.

It was an opportunity to share the songs in English and French with the parents and to make them discover the works produced during this first period ... and taste the coconuts from the courtyard!

The school hosted a "defibrillator" training, funded by Riverland, on Tuesday, October 17, 2017; this instrument is now available at the sports center. Some staff of the establishment were able to update their initial training (offered by the school every three years).

We remain at your disposal for any questions.
