Port Vila International School

Quality Education in Vanuatu

Welcome to our school

Welcome to the Port Vila International School (PVIS) website. We are proud to provide excellence in education to families in Port Vila, Vanuatu. Our core purpose is to develop critical and creative thinkers who will become life long learners and active global citizens. We value culture and diversity in a safe and inclusive community. PVIS is multi-cultural community with approximately 27 different nationalities represented at the school.

Our teaching staff have internationally recognised qualifications and are ably supported by our highly motivated team of support staff dedicated to ensuring quality outcomes for students and families.

As the leader in providing premium education in Port Vila, we are committed to providing a balanced and broad curriculum utilising the latest teaching methods and assistive technologies to enhance teaching and learning experiences in classrooms.

We strive to make PVIS a place where everyone feels welcome and an integral part of our community. We strive to be ‘one school’ where students experience a seamless transition from the Early Education Centre right through to Senior Secondary Schooling.

Our school utilises the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) of Australia in our Early Education Centre, with the Primary and Secondary School utilizing the Australian Curriculum. 2018 sees the implementation of the Stage 1 (Year 11) SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education) curriculum with students completing Stage 2 (Year 12) in 2019. This will offer our students the opportunity to attain an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) that will allow them to apply for direct access to universities in Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

Our curriculum documents and curriculum plans have been derived from materials downloaded from the Australian Curriculum website (http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/) accessed from 2018 and modified to align with local context.
