All schools are closed today, Friday, April 29, because of the weather conditions. The Ministry of Education announced the decision after the meteorological station of Vacoas issued a torrential rain warning today morning.
All pre-primary, primary, secondary, and training centres like the Mauritius Institute of Training and Development (MITD), together with tertiary education institutions are closed today because of the risk of torrential rain in many regions of the island.
However, school heads and the non-teaching staff are not included in the announcement.
The atmospheric conditions are extremely humid and unstable in our region, explains the meteorological services. These are expected to promote the formation of heavy clouds. Furthermore, the island will most likely witness a thunderstorm like yesterday.
