 Student blossoming and their openings on the world:

Student blossoming and their openings on the world:

At l'école Paul et Virginie, we seek to encourage open-mindedness, openness to others and to the world through the various activities offered to students.

Physical and Sports Education (PES) is very much part of the timetable. Each student benefits from at least one weekly session with the qualified physical education coordinator: Xavier Bertrand. The other sessions are led by the class teacher.

École élémentaire Tamarin

During the summer period, our students benefit from a weekly swimming session allowing them to familiarize themselves with water, an element very present in Mauritius, from a very young age.

Every year, sports meetings by class level are organized with the other French educational institutions in Mauritius in order to encourage not only exchanges of sports practices but also to develop social and citizenship skills.

The arts are also at the center of our priorities.

In visual arts, students can create, discover subjects, explore media... A "plastic arts" space has been set up at the school to encourage these sessions.

Each end of year, a dedicated "arts week" allows students to discover new techniques, create artistic projects and meet different artists who are delighted to share their passion.

Once again this year, and to our great delight, the students will benefit from the presence of Violaine Lebon, a music educator who, in collaboration with the class teachers, will make them explore the rhythm and possibilities of stage singing. She will prepare third grade students for the choir meetings of the island's French schools (if they can take place).

Literature and poetry are also great artistic supports that we introduce the students to during library time with the librarian, Céline Chabaud, in class with their teacher(s), on an occasional basis thanks to a Mauritian author, or during educational events such as the Printemps des poètes (which we celebrate some years).

École élémentaire Tamarin

At l'école Paul et Virginie, we implement the competences of the French programs into the local context. This allows students to discover their immediate environment: its personalities, its geography, its history...

Thus the educational projects carried out in class often lead to school outings organized along the student's path so that they can discover the local culture. We also encourage the participation of local personalities: artists, sportsmen, important personalities...

The school encourages extracurricular activities aimed at introducing other techniques and new behaviours, allowing different age groups to mingle and reinforce social competencies. These extra-curricular times contribute significantly to the students' development.

Two weeks of vacation school, during the first week of the October and April vacations, are organized to complement these daily extracurricular activities.
