Extra Curricular Program at VAS provides alternate learning opportunities for students which could spark an interest or passion that will last a lifetime. VAS aims to support each child with their aspirations, whether they be from learning how to relieve stress, to developing their knowledge on health and fitness, seeking more explicit information that can be used for additional qualifications, or just finding new ways to have fun! The choice will be theirs, and through the core values, the Extra-curricular programme fosters the comprehensive development of both physical and aesthetic talent and necessary life skills.

• Gender and sex awareness and emotional issues at school

VAS encourages its students to join or organise programmes related to areas of interest, such as environment protection or philanthropy to build their sense of community and to cultivate kindness, expression of love and helping people.
