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.
On the 5th December, Year 9 students took a “STEP into SPACE”. Northfields hosted its first STEP (Science and Technology Enrolement Programme) day in conjunction with Planet Earth Institute. PEI’s aim is to bring African science, technology and innovation to the level at which it can independently drive its own development agenda. Students took a giant leap into the great beyond, as UK space scientist and TV presenter Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock led an interactive study day, opened with a keynote address from Her Excellency President Dr. Ameenah Gurib-Fakim. This was followed by the unveiling of a Foundation Stone for our new building.
Messages and vote of thanks from the prefect body- Founder’s Day 2016
The prefect body plays a pivotal role in the running of the school by assisting both staff and pupils. This year we have the biggest prefect body consisting of 17 prefects. As prefects we try to contribute as much as we can to the school; we have organised many events such as international day, Valentine’s Day, bake sales , fun run and we still have a few more planned for our last few months here. As individuals we are all very different; however when we come together our individualities is what unites us, builds up the team spirit and enables us to work as one even though our opinions differ sometimes.Read more ...
