The ideal education system for Mauritius – primary, middle, sc+hsc high school

Being good at studies and having attended a star school I might have seen the current education system to be most appropriate to me. I did my CPE, ranked good, went to secondary school… still unsure what I’d become… I did science because it led to more openings according to my parents. I almost did medicine, and corrected myself at the last minute to do something I really love – computers…

Wait, what did I actually learn at primary school? Maths and languages… Does it mean that the (nearly) half who fail CPE aren’t worth going to college? Not everyone is good at math and languages (I’m omitting EVS – now as art, and a few more)…

NTC Stops Route 176 Port Louis-Flacq, What About 222 Rose Hill-Rempart?

NTC has just stopped offering the Port Louis -Depinay – Lallmatie – Flacq 176 route. I hear people say that it was not profitable. So ‘bus individuel’ are not taking that route in the morning. I can understand that with so many buses in the Flacq-Port Louis route. Now I hear talks that they’re saying that 222 Rempart-Laventure/Petite Retraite-Lallmatie-Quartier Militaire-Reduit-Rose Hill might also be stopped for the same reason. As if it’s not profitable.

According to my research on Google, they put only 9 buses on the 222 route and 10 in the 226 (Rempart-Curepipe) as per a couple of years ago. Imagine with all the crowd waiting and rushing to get buses in the morning. They could easily have put an extra 3 buses from 6-8 am and from 3-5 pm. But no, you have to rush, the conductor will stop you cause the buses go FULL during that time with standing. More

Hard-working vs Lazy Teachers

People in Mauritius have recently grown jealous of the dream job of many, school teacher, or educator as they are called now (for college), long paying holidays, short working hours… Little do they know the hard work that many of them put in doing their duty. It is like labour work, except that nobody says they ‘only’ work from 5 to 11 am or so. That’s because their work is physically demanding. Education on the other hand, is mentally demanding, and as exhausting as your private 9 to 6 pm job…

However, there are some teachers who abuse of their positions, to enjoy themselves, make money on tuitions – thus making a bad name for themselves. There are a few examples of those, like Mr X who threatens his students to take tuition with him, or else he will give them bad marks. More

Just Do It!

Times and again, someone has to know what’s happening in some places around Lallmatie… Or that I should give my opinion on the problems in Mauritius. I’m not yet writing articles for a newspaper, but a blog is a very good start!

So often, I get ideas of what I can write, or what should be said (like many people had predicted today’s traffic problems with the 3 pm ending time for colleges – it’s another thing that it might be solved today… we said it before… much before…). So from now on, I’ll write on… Show the world, you, and expect comments, critics, etc… Spam? Except Spam…

Speaking of the traffic problem, if ‘they’ really want to keep the 3 pm, why not increase the working time for government agencies to 4.30 pm? Anyway, they’re already getting more pay since this year’s PRB – and we’re still working harder, and for longer hours in the private sector, and still running the economy…
