Who would think teaching Math in Vietnam would be my second career? My name is Sandra Swanepoel. I'm South African and I have been teaching at VAS for the past 2 years.
Well mannered, respectful students, with a sense of humour, are what I am looking forward to every day. Our school offers a stable working environment with a vision to the future. Helpful and supportive colleagues from all over the world add flavour to my working day. Even during Covid-19 we were treated with dignity and respect - nobody lost their jobs.
It is a pleasure to teach in Vietnam where everything is very cheap, and you have the world's most beautiful nature and landscapes to visit, from the tropical south to snow in the northern mountains of Sapa.
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.
