Government Schools

Hello Guys,

we want possible relocate to mauritius soon. But we have 3 kids and the private school fees for three possible are huge. So the question if there are any government/public schools in mauritius which are "o.k."?  I mean in general?

P.s. Kids are now 1 and 2. So we have a little bit time, but we want do research already

Hello

Depending on the region you will be staying..

In some place public schools are great.

but keep in mind that the base language in public school will be the mauritian creole

In which areas do you think you can find the best government/public schools? So we can adjust our location to this area!

About the language, creol is fine for us. But they learn also additional some english in government/public schools or only creole's language?

the best schools are found in the centre of the island.

am not telling that others parts are bad , but for what i know the centre is best .. in plaine wilhems..
and yes in school french and english is taught

RCA school depending on the region, offer acceptable level of primary education if you are on a budget.

It dependa where you live, as better the region, the better the school environment.

The main teaching language in state schools is English. French is also taught, same for Oriental languages.
However, the conventional language spoken between students is Mauritian Creole.

Good government schools are mainly located in the Plaine Wilhems region in the large towns - Curepipe, Port Louis, Rose Hill/beau Bassin, Quatres Bornes.
Aryan Vedic in Vacoas, Hugh Otter Barry in Curepipe, Sir Veerasamy Ringadoo in Quatres Bornes, Phillippe Rivalland in Beau Bassin, Notre Dame de Victoire in Rose Hill, Raoul Rivet in Port Louis are some of the most reputed govt schools in Mauritius.

Roman Catholic Schools under the aegis of the Mauritian Catholic Church are also highly rated and with very good reputation. They are called RCA schools and are located in towns and big villages. Some are affiliated with high schools which are also very good and respected. The best ones are the Loreto Colleges found in Curepipe, Quatres Bornes, Port Louis and Rose Hill and are exclusively for girls.
For boys, you have the St Esprit, St Joseph and St Mary's.

One Question about the Roman Catholic Schools - RCA`s:  Are boys and girls always separated, or are there also schools where both sexes go together into one class? And do you have any idea what the annual fee in such a school costs for a child, e.g. primary school? I found this one http://www.st-nicholas.mu/faq.html Are this fees per year or per months (just as example)?

At primary level, the classes are mixed, but at secondary level, boys and girls are separated and go to their respective schools.
RCA schools are state funded, therefore free.

St. Nicolas is a private school. These are monthly fees.

Thank you soooo much WinstonH. This was really helpful!!!
