Update July 5th: We are happy and excited to welcome all our students back to school after so many months of homeschooling due to COVID-19 lockdown. We have missed you all so very much!
As parents are still not allowed on school premises due to COVID-19 precautions, please discover our school through a virtual tour below or in the Photo Gallery. You can contact the admin for more information by email on admin@telfairprimary.com

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.

About Us
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.

Library at Telfair

Tuesday is Library day at Telfair. The children love coming to our Library/Multimedia room and choosing a new book among over 3,000 fiction and non-fiction books.


Fundraising is an ongoing, creative effort at TIPS, where parents, staff and children are active, enthusiastic participants.

School Journey

Year 5 and 6 children have the opportunity to go on an overseas school journey every two years. Children do a variety of Fund Raising events collecting money towards this trip. Our last trip to Rodrigues was in 2016.

ICT at Telfair

Computer literacy is an essential skill in the modern world. All children at Telfair International Primary School have the opportunity to work with computers and digital equipment from age four to eleven. We are introducing Robotics as part of our Curriculum in 2018.

Art Class at Telfair

Art stimulates creativity and imagination. Understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the visual arts has the power to enrich our lives. During their time in school, children are introduced to a wide variety of creative activities including drawing, painting, modeling and printing, and they are taught to use materials with precision and care.
