Port Vila International School (PVIS) is pleased to announce the availability of a three-year full scholarship for an exceptional Ni-Vanuatu student starting in January 2019.
The international school is encouraging prospective local senior secondary students to register now to attend the PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship Day on Friday 23 November to be considered for this fantastic opportunity.
“Thanks to the very generous support of the Kotara Community of Schools in Newcastle, NSW, Australia, we are now seeking applications from academically exceptional students interested in completing their schooling at Port Vila International School,” PVIS Principal, Mrs. Sarah Chambers.
Current high-performing Ni-Vanuatu Year 10 students from local high schools are invited to the PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship Day on Friday 23 November to meet the School’s teachers and students, tour facilities, and undergo academic assessments to measure their proficiency in literacy and numeracy.
The best performing local student will be awarded a three-year scholarship for all their tuition and education costs for Year 10, 11 and 12, including lap tops, text books, uniforms, and stationery.
“This is an exciting opportunity for a local student to demonstrate academic excellence as well as the personal qualities of pride, versatility, individuality and strength.”
To be eligible for consideration for a PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship candidates must have the endorsement of their current school Principal or a Community/Church leader.
Registrations for the PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship Day close on Monday 19 November. Only 10 places are available at the PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship Day, so prospective students should register now by calling the School on 23837 or email [email protected]
For the first time in 2019, students in Vanuatu have the opportunity to complete, in English, a school certificate that enables them to access degree level tertiary study.
“Port Vila International School is proud to be endorsed as the first school in the Pacific to deliver the SACE International Certificate with the first graduating students due to complete in 2019.”
“Completion of the SACE International Certificate means PVIS graduates get an Australian Tertiary Admissions Ranking (ATAR) that enables our graduates to apply directly for Undergraduate Tertiary study in Australia, New Zealand and other international tertiary institutions with no need for Foundation Studies,” said Mrs. Sarah Chambers.
More than half of the currently enrolled first graduating class at PVIS are ni-Vanuatu, demonstrating the PVIS commitment to support high quality, flexible education for local and international families in Vanuatu.
“Our students are currently preparing for their final year of school studying a wide range of subjects including the traditional Mathematics and Science programs (Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Earth and Environmental Science) as well as Business and Enterprise, Economics, Tourism, Visual Art and Technology,” said Mrs. Sarah Chambers.
“Starting in 2018, staff and students at Port Vila International School have made excellent progress on their SACE International Stage 1 studies. With a 100% completion rate for Semester 1 subjects and excellent feedback from the SACE Board on the standard of curriculum and assessment delivery at PVIS, students are on track to begin Stage 2 in 2019.”
Port Vila International School (PVIS) in Port Vila, Vanuatu provides quality education services for families in the Port Vila community. PVIS is a small multicultural international community school, with students from 28 nationalities. Over 50% of the school’s secondary students are local Ni-Vanuatu students.
