Youths march ahead of Independence Day-Mauritius

Port-Louis, Mauritius - Thousands of Mauritian youth Tuesday marched on the streets of the capital, Port-Louis, to show their commitment to the Mauritian nation on the eve of its 46th  Independence Anniversary on Wednesday, PANA reported from Port-Louis.

Carrying the national flag, posters and banners and dressed colourfully, they urged the population to help create a society where the youth can live in peace, unity and harmony.

Earlier, in a message read in all schools, Mauritian Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam reiterated his commitment to creating an engaging learning experience for all students. 

He said the government would always place a high premium on education and training as a vital driving force behind national development.

“We will continue to invest in education to unleash the power of creativity that is within every single student of the country,” Ramgoolam added.

The Prime Minister urged the students to clearly understand and realise their duties, their rights and responsibilities. 

“Not a single student should be left behind” as “anyone amongst you must have the means to attain her or his goals and fulfil her or his ambitions,” the Prime Minister said.
