Welcome

 

 

Welcome to Westcoast International Primary School, an English-medium private school located on the scenic west coast of Mauritius.

 

We recognise and support individual development needs, and provide a positive learning environment which is conducive to children's academic and social progress.  Westcoast is able to accomplish this through a comprehensive and systematic approach to the way knowledge is delivered, received and assessed.

 

The philosophy behind our methods is rooted in the creation of a low-stress, positive environment in which children are free to express themselves and their opinions, ideas, feelings and needs.  We are proud to call this a “student-centred” environment.

 

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) plays a pivotal role in the way our children learn and receive knowledge. The IPC has provided us with the ability and techniques to consistently provide stimulating and effective lessons which capture the students’ attention and hold their interest long after the lesson has ended.  Delivering the IPC units has also proved that children can be inspired to take part in their own learning process.  Our students truly enjoy this new approach of teaching themselves.  It builds upon their self-confidence and value as individuals; and assures them of their own abilities, skills and talents.

 

Mauritius is rich in tradition, customs and culture.  At Westcoast we take pride in providing a positive, healthy environment that embraces and nurtures these elements of diversity.  This approach is fundamental in building a positive character and self-esteem in children, while progressively developing a greater knowledge and respect for others and the world around them.

 

It is our belief that learning institutions (schools) should be places where children can feel and experience a true desire to learn without pressure whilst developing a solid intellect and fine character.  If this can be achieved, then the school has indeed fulfilled its obligation to produce students who will prosper and contribute as respectable members of the global community.

 

Our teachers are carefully chosen to meet the specific challenges of delivering a world-class education utilising a state-of-the-art curriculum, modern teaching techniques, continual training and ongoing professional development.  This ensures academic quality and, more importantly, that your child will find his/her school experience and lessons stimulating, challenging and enjoyable.

 

When you visit our school you will see great teaching practices that accommodate each child’s unique background, personality and learning style.  We have built a truly wonderful school:  a school we are proud of, and one your child will be equally proud of and happy to attend.
