Our Primary years programme runs from ages 5-11 and currently supports nearly 5,000 children.
In the primary years, children study both English and Vietnamese through a dual-curriculum adapted from the Cambridge Primary Curriculum Framework and the Vietnamese Primary National Curriculum. English lessons in the primary years are divided into two pathways, the Cambridge Academic Programme and the Cambridge English Programme. The Cambridge Academic Programme focuses on preparing students for the Cambridge Checkpoint Examinations at the end of Primary. The Cambridge English Programme focuses on foundational English skills with a focus on preparing students fro the Cambridge Young Learners English Tests.
To further child development, our dedicated staff embed the Cambridge Learner Attributes and the Seven Core Values of VAS into every lesson so that the children will be prepared for their journey of life-long learning to become global citizens and "be the best they can be".
Your friends and coworkers at VAS will come from various English speaking countries from all over the world. When you work here you will enjoy the mix of international and Vietnamese educational programs and teaching styles - an amazing opportunity to grow and to learn from two different worlds.
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.
