To mark the 25th anniversary of the Republic of Mauritius which will culminate with the 50th anniversary of the Independence of Mauritius, the State House hosted an Activity Week
from 20 to 28 May 2017.
The main thrust of the Activity Week
was focused on Mauritian creativity with respect to Publications and Art Works, Plant and Floral Display. Local artists, authors and creators were invited to present their works to the general public and as well as sale of plants and flowers.
Students from various socioeconomic backgrounds and children with special needs were invited to participate in a series of interactive workshops to give them the opportunity to express their talents and creativity.
The public were treated to live performances from local musicians and folkloric dance groups.
