WELCOME TO THE FENIX SCHOOL!
The Fenix School is a unique school set within a well-appointed building and a lush garden in the quiet, centrally situated area of St Paul.
It offers a supportive family atmosphere to nurture each pupil's interests and talents and promote physical and mental well-being in order to develop general knowledge and specific skills for all of them.
We believe each boy and girl has the potential for excellence.
Our main objective is to redesign the way we teach and the way our pupils learn not only with their head (academic subjects) but also with their heart (artistic modules), their body (sports) and their hands.
ADMISSIONS IN GRADE 1 FOR JANUARY 2021
In these most difficult times, we would like to reaffirm our commitment towards education. More than ever we feel that, we, parents have the responsibility to choose what’s best for our children. Not only to offer them the best education but also to provide them with a safe and secure environment.
Therefore, we believe that with only 10 children per grade, tailor-made learning environments and a well-thought sanitary protocol, The Fenix School offers, YOU, parents the opportunity of making the right choice.
Should you wish to find out more about The Fenix School, please do not hesitate to give us a call and schedule a tour. We are always very enthusiastic about meeting parents who are looking for an alternative education based on modern teaching approaches.
THE FENIX SCHOOL, A UNIQUE SCHOOL
Modern parents believe that modern education should involve teaching approaches that not only focus on content knowledge but also develop interpersonal skills. And this is exactly what we do at The Fenix School!
To provide a rich and holistic education.
To nurture each pupil's interests and talents.
To promote physical and mental wellbeing through numerous ventures.
To encourage an appreciation of books, classical music and art.
To let children learn through play.
To build a deep commitment to common values and principles.
To let the pupils do on their own (,aide-moi à faire seul’ - Montessori)
To encourage MORE collaboration and promote socio-emotional skills
To help our pupils reinvest the knowledge learnt in the different subjects (transdisciplinarity)
To teach how to use their hands.
Our classes start at 9 a.m and end at 3 p.m every day, except Wednesday, when they finish at noon. The lunch break is one-hour long and we are happy to announce that as from 2020,healthy breakfasts and lunches will be served at school.
Dressed in their crisp white polo shirts and black bermuda shorts, pupils can be seen reluctantly leaving the deep colourful bean bags that were crafted by Mauritian artisans. They must have been lured there by the books adorning the library ! Thankfully, their
disappointment is always short-lived as they make their way to their respective classroom where there's always something happening! They can also unleash their creative juices: Let them dance, sing or act!
Our pupils always feel at home, so much so that learning becomes an exciting journey of discovery. Whilst they benefit from the complete range of academic subjects, the focus on sports, arts and languages will insure the success of each and every student.
