The NYCBE which is the Nine Year of Continuous Basic Education policy consists of a whole set of reforms aimed at strategically transforming the education system. Learning areas, cross curricular areas and 21st Century competencies are part of the Nine Year continuous curriculum to provide a holistic, inclusive and equitable education for all students to attain high levels of achievement. Performing Arts (Music, Dance, Drama), Visual Arts and Design are all part of the curriculum.
The outcomes of the educational reform are to enable our children to become:
* socially and emotionally well-balanced and self-motivated individuals with a heightened sense of integrity and self-respect, autonomous lifelong learners confident in the use of all accumulated knowledge and in engaging in new ways of creative and critical thinking, thereby acting as change agents.
* informed and empowered citizens endowed with the right attitudes and values for sound and healthy living in diversified multicultural settings and societies, whether in Mauritius or outside, show appurtenance to and concern for the community, assume a staunch stewardship of the environment and are upholders of values and beliefs intrinsic to a democratic way of life.
