Telfair International Primary School (TIPS) is an English co-educational school situated in Tamarin, on the west coast of Mauritius.
The school first opened its doors in January 2007. We cater for children from 5 to 12 years old who then follow on to one of the private secondary schools on the island. We are presently the direct feeder school to Le Bocage Secondary High School in Moka. They have plans to build in the Black River Region.
Telfair is a small community school that has a warm and happy atmosphere.
Our numbers are low to encourage a personalized one-on-one quality education.
We believe it is important for children to feel confident and happy in their achievements, striving to improve and better themselves.
We seek to promote positive attitudes and awareness of others, as well as respect for the richness of all cultures.
We aim to provide our children that leave us, with the highest level of academic achievements, as well as good values and perseverance.

Rodrigues Trip 2016
Every two years Class 5 & 6 students have the opportunity to go on an overseas trip. In 2016 we went to Rodrigues. Children participate in various Fund Raising activities to collect money for their trip.
