Northfields is one of Mauritius' leading independent international private schools. Set amidst an open and leafy campus in Labourdonnais village, Northfields is one of the most well-known schools in Mauritius. We provide an all-round English-medium education for just over 390 boys and girls aged 9-18. Close to our main campus is the Northfields Nursery and Junior School which caters for children from 18 months to 4 years. Northfields is well known for its relaxed family atmosphere, traditional values and emphasis on the development of the whole pupil, through rigorous academic study, exposure to the arts, extra-curricular and sporting activities.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Civvies Day, Bake Sale and Second-Hand book sale on Friday. Your generosity, help and support was very much appreciated. It was amazing to see the Northfields community coming together in support of SOS Children's Villages, Mauritius.
The Faculty of Mathematics and ICT have the pleasure of inviting Professor Seeburn to deliver a lecture on Security Awareness to Year 12 Computer Science students and the Northfields teaching staff on the 15th of September 2017. Professor Seeburn's career highlights the fact that we are living in a global village with no boundaries and the skills of each and every individual can be recognised locally and globally. This will be a great opportunity for both students and staff alike as they enjoy face to face interaction with the professor. We intend to publish an interview with him so please watch this space for more updated information. This lecture demonstrates the school's commitment to provide students with the best opportunities to understand and appreciate the relevance and application of what they are studying during their course. We hope that the Northfields community will benefit greatly from this once in a life time opportunity.
Northfields International School will be the first school outside of South Africa to enter learners into the De Beers English Olympiad. The English Faculty is finding ways to expose the Year 11 learners to opportunities to engage with critical thinking opportunities.
The primary objectives of the De Beers English Olympiad are:
• To enrich learners through the study of English; encouraging them to explore it beyond the scope of the school syllabus;
• To encourage critical thinking and creative writing while learners enjoy the challenges of preparing for and writing the examination;
• To promote the English language and stimulate the study of English amongst first and second English Language speakers, and to proactively increase the participation of candidates in previously disadvantaged schools;
• To provide access to these benefits for motivated learners unable to pay the entry fee, through the provision of bursaries.
The De Beers English Olympiad is in partnership of the Rhodes University, South Africa.
