Taking part in Fête du Pain

Pupils invited to take part in the Fete du Pain festivities organised by the Municipality of Curepipe

It was a proud day for Hampton School, Curepipe as two of our pupils from our Pre-Primary department were invited to take part in the Fete du Pain festivities organised by the Municipality of Curepipe. The event highlighted the importance of bread and Bakers. As part of the festivities, our students were asked to dress up as a Baker and produce an educative art piece with bread as the theme. It was a memorable day for our young pupils as they were able to take to the stage and to showcase their artwork to the public. They were thus able to contribute in their own way to the success of the event. There was also an opportunity for them to meet and be congratulated by the Mayor of Curepipe for their outstanding efforts.

Our National Day Celebration Was a Big Success

Term 1

Mauritius National Day 2009 Celebrations at Hampton School

Hampton pupils took to the field today to celebrate National Day. An important holiday in Mauritius, National Day celebrates two important events. First, it honors the day in 1968 that the country gained its independence from the United Kingdom. Second, it celebrates the day that the Republic of Mauritius was formed back in 1992.

Because we are an English Medium Primary School in Mauritius, Hampton is proud to be able to help our pupils celebrate this important national holiday. We were honoured to welcome Professor Finette, who read the Prime Minister's speech.

In addition to celebrating Mauritius today, the occasion was a great way for our pupils to learn about Mauritius's past. They were able to learn about the struggles of previous generations, as well as perform these lessons as a dramatic sketch. We believe that learning about all that has happened before made our pupils grateful. We hope it will inspire them to make a difference of their own.

It was a very lovely day and will be remembered for a long time. We look forward to celebrating National Day with our pupils again next year!
