The Dukesbridge Blog



Last Friday was such a memorable moment for the beautiful mums of our senior students as Dukesbridge put on a special Mothers’ Day celebration for them. I felt so proud to play a part in this. In fact, it all started about a couple of weeks ago when the Management asked us, teachers, for some suggestions about what we could do to mark this special day. For a few years, I had the opportunity to study and teach in a preschool in Australia and so, in passing, I spoke to my campus manager about my experience of helping the Aussie students host their mums at school. Little did I know that this would ultimately explode into a big, fun party for the mums across our campuses…



Dukesbridge's 5th campus was inaugurated on the 5th day of the 5th month of 2017. The Acting President of the Republic of Mauritius, His Excellency Mr Vyapoory, was the guest of honour at the Launch ceremony of Dukesbridge North campus which is one of the last few standing old French colonial houses in Pamplemousses converted into a preschool for children living in the North of the island. Also speaking at the Launch event was Mr Fakhru Mohamedbhai, the son of the former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Mauritius, a former national laureate and now an accomplished UK barrister selected by Legal 500 as one of the top ten commercial barristers under eight years' call. He has kindly sent us his speech for it to be published as follows. 




On 2nd March 2017, Dukesbridge Primary students took part in World Book Day. This is a day where children all over the UK celebrate and appreciate reading their favourite books, as well as discovering new ones. To get into the spirit of the day, the children came to school dressed as a character in their favourite book. The whole day was filled with book-themed activities such as the mad-hatter tea-party hosted by our very own Miss Kirsty dressed as Alice in Wonderland. It was great to see everyone so involved and excited about reading!
