The Dukesbridge Group, which runs a chain of English-medium private schools in Mauritius, has just launched its third Primary school, named Dukesbridge North, located in Pamplemousses.

The new campus was inaugurated by the Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Education Mrs Leela Devi Dookun-Luchoomun and representatives from the Government of Australia.  The Minister Dookun-Luchoomun congratulated Dukesbridge’s founders, Rishi and Shannon Nursimulu, for their determination to contribute to the growth and diversification of the Mauritian education sector.  

“Dukesbridge has been a player in the education system of our country since 2014 and now has a number of schools that are operational across the island. This is a clear indication of the recognition and support that Dukesbridge as an institution has gained from parents and the community, she said.

The Dukesbridge Group is accredited by the Government of Australia, in particular the Department of Education of Western Australia, and has a growing presence in East Africa.

There are currently 10 Pre-Primary schools and 3 Primary schools (including Dukesbridge North) across the island with Dukesbridge Secondary School due to start in 2023 in Trianon. 

Director Shannon Nursimulu credited the success of the school to the school faculty and management staff, led by Kirsty Lallchand, Head of Dukesbridge Primary School. She noted that the new campus in Mon Goût, Pamplemousses, has taken over a year to build, with construction completed in May 2022, and the children moving in and starting lessons in July 2022. 

The campus can accommodate 450 students, with approximately 20 children per class. There are currently one Grade 3, two Grade 2 and two Grade 1 classes, and the first batch of Grade 4 students will begin in 2023. There are almost 300 children in the North campus (nursery to primary) and there are still places available, although they are filling up quickly.

Dukesbridge has just acquired over 2 acres of land next to its primary school in Trianon (Ebene) where will start its secondary school in 2023. 

In addition to the Australian certificate, Dukesbridge aims to provide the Cambridge IGCSE and A-Level (HSC) examinations and offer work placements and semester exchanges with Australian schools in Perth.
