- It is not mandatory to be fluent in English to get admission in the initial years. However, our EAL Staff is limited so before offering admission, we will consider whether the EAL support staff and the classroom teacher can serve the student.
- We also accept children with learning support need. However, our Learning Support staffing is limited, so before offering admission we will consider whether the student can be served by the existing Learning support staff and the classroom teacher. Families may also be asked to pay for additional support for their child if VIS learning support team decides that additional external support is necessary to offer the proper assistance and facilities needed by the student.

- Monthly school fees will remain due during the 3 months’ notice period.
