On Friday, April 20, 2018, the film "C'est quoi le bonheur pour toi?" was screened in the school's amphitheater.

On Friday, 15 December 2017, the Association of Parents of Pupils (APEP) organized for two travelling circus artists to perform at the school. It was an entertaining and appropriate performance.

After that a bag of books, which had been deposited by Santa Claus, was discovered, and put into the library.

Finally everyone had biscuits and juice. This activity was sponsored by the APEP.

From the 6th to the 9th December 2017 the school took part in the ‘Cap Tamarin Shopping Centre’ Christmas Market. Our students helped Devid, a local artist paint a set of three frescoes at the shopping centre. The GS (five year olds) and the CM1 (nine year olds) made two mandalas with coloured rice. On Saturday, 9 December, the day of the market, many of our students came with their parents to sing carols in the ‘Cap Tamarin Shopping Centre.

In the last few years, we have organized a count-down to the End of Year school holidays. This year the CP2 were in charge of organising and introducing the various activities. Each class had an opportunity to entertain the primary school for about ten minutes in the morning before classes. We had jokes, songs, riddles and charades. 

The two CM2 and CE1 classes and the CE2 class spent a day at the ‘Porlwi by Nature’ Festival held  in Port Louis from 29 November to 3 December 2017.

The CM2 students (ten year olds) successfully set up science stalls on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th November and demonstrated air and water experiments. They varied their explanations so that even the youngest in the school learnt a lot.

As part of the Porlwi by Nature festival , from the 29th November to the 3rd Drcember the students in both the CE1 classes prepared, with two artists, origami packets with seeds in them,  which were hung from a tree at the Apravasi Ghat for the public to “ pick. It was a valuable experience for the students to work with the 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 around the world and improve their living conditions. 

With the participation of all the children of the school, we made a film which can be seen at: https://youtu.be/oZmigLNOooU

On Friday, 10 November 2017, we commemorated the 99th anniversary of the First World War armistice. 
A thank you to the students of CM2 for their performance on the occasion of the commemoration of November 11, 1918. They said memorably: "Peace is fragile, as it is easy to lose it, it is necessary to fight to keep it!"

CE2 students finalized their sequence on the Tamarin map, in English, on the field on Wednesday, October 18, 2017. 

During this first period of the 2017/2018 school year, the teaching team worked to make it possible for each student to know who the staff in the school are. Naturally, each student knows who his teachers are, the documentalist who welcomes them once a week, the sports teacher, the school life manager who manages the supervision and 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. In this way, the cleaners introduced themselves to the classes they clean to teach the students to respect them and their work. 

A project on politeness aimed to encourage every student to use the "magic words": "hello", "please", "thank you" and "goodbye". Several classes produced a poster on this theme. The students voted for the best poster which was then copied and displayed in each class and on the school boards. 

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

On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, the kindergarten classes opened their doors to parents. It was the occasion to share the singing of  songs in English and French with the parents and to enable them to discover the work done during this first period ... and to taste the coconuts of the court!

The CP students gave the kindergarten children a puppet show. Everyone was delighted! Well done!.

Both the CE1 and CE2 classes went to a screening of the festival Iles Courts, festival of short films, at the French Institute of Mauritius (IFM). 

We celebrated the “Week of the Taste” from October 2 to 6, 2017. All classes participated. The students were able to work on the meaning of taste in the form of games, and various tastings...

The week ended with a Mauritian meal. 

All recipes sent in by families have been grouped in a digital book, here it is here

We would like to thank the parents and the canteen provider who played the game well.

Ten classes were able to benefit from the Serge Constantin Retrospective at Plaza and the IFM between September 20th and October 10th, 2017. It was an opportunity to discover this artist who is an important figure in the history of  Mauritius.

Since the beginning of August 2017, a “Local Unit for School Inclusion” class was created at our school . A specialist teacher, Louis Baxellerie, and an assistant, Joelle Meunier, welcomed 3 students who are unable to be integrated into a normal class at their present level of development. These students are also included in their reference class during the school day. In order to encourage the integration of these otherwise capable students and to answer the questions of the other students, Louis went into the classes between 10 and 20 September 2017, with a film and discussion.
