LIS Luganville International School - Vanuatu

Established in 2016, Luganville International school is an English school serving the international community of Santo, Vanuatu. We use the Australian curriculum and currently have teachers from Vanuatu, Australia, USA, and Finland.

Luganville International School Inc. is a charitable organization founded on 31st May 2016 and located in Luganville, Santo, Vanuatu. It has opened its doors on 18 July 2016. Philosophy Our Early Childhood Care and Education Centre caters for children from 3yrs to 5yrs old, and offers a play based learning curriculum. Research has shown that play is the best exercise for the brain, because it provides the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. Children in all cultures are pre-programmed to learn about the world through play. They naturally “discover, create and learn to become critical independent thinkers” while experiencing all the joys and delights of childhood. Children are active learners who make sense of their world and themselves when they have opportunities to investigate and explore materials and ideas through play and interactions with others. Learning occurs as part of the social and cultural interactions between children and parents, families, teachers, community members and others. To this end we aim to provide a warm, caring, supportive and safe environment , where each child is nurtured and valued, and has the opportunity to grow, wonder, imagine and enquire, to learn and develop meaningful relationships with adults and other children. Our centre will be a place where each child will feel valued and respected. CORE VALUES ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE • One of our main beliefs is to develop within the child the love of learning by providing a very generous and broad education; creating a balance between academics, the arts and humanities. We encourage learning through experiences, creativity and practical application. • We aim to encourage our students to learn to think, problem solve, work individually and in teams. • To maintain throughout their school years “their love of learning”. We encourage each child to be a lifelong learner, recognizing that we never stop learning and discovering new things, even as adults. PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT • To encourage within each child a sense of who they are in the world, to develop self-confidence, honesty and integrity, grace, and a commitment to achieve their highest potential. SERVICE • To look beyond oneself and serve others in the school community and beyond. • To respect and protect the environment and promote an awareness of environmental issues both locally and globally. RESPECT FOR ALL • We believe each child is an individual and a person of worth.

Mission: To provide a quality, caring, positive and stimulating learning environment for students to develop and grow academically and personally.
