MESSAGE FROM
VAS EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN

Dear valued parents and students,

Vietnam Australia International School (VAS) pursues the vision of “Being a growing school group of excellence”. VAS provides students with a solid foundation by delivering a harmonious combination of the Vietnamese National and the Cambridge International education programmes, preparing them to be successful in life and higher education whilst preserving Vietnamese values.

To realize this vision, VAS has built a strong community of national and international teachers, staff and managers, who passionately and effectively deliver VAS’s educational programmes. In addition, VAS aims to excel in communicating and engaging parents to create a partnership where families support our educational staff and objectives to ensure that all students achieve their full potential.

At VAS we understand that nothing is more important and valuable to a child than having an opportunity to obtain a sound education that enables him or her to be successful in the future. We are very proud to offer such foundations. We apply some of the most updated teaching methods to provide students with profound cultural and core knowledge alongside practical life skills and life values. We also aim to create a comfortable and friendly environment where every student can experience and express kindness, love and respect and are supported appropriately to make the most of their natural abilities. This is supported by our strong “core values” programme as you will be able to read in this prospectus.

We wish for every student to develop a high level of academic achievement and grow both intellectually and socially. We believe that today’s young talents will be successful in the future if they are provided with the highest standard of education right from the beginning. We hope that their time spent at VAS will be the most enjoyable and memorable time of their student life.
