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, 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 and a Community/Church leader.
Registrations for the PVIS Senior Secondary Scholarship Day close on Monday 19 November.
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 Chambers.
