International School Award
We are very pleased to let you all know that Victoria has now achieved full accreditation in the British Council International School awards. Higher than our intermediate award which we posted here last February. The assessors commented on our application and we have included some quotes below:
“This is an excellent Impact Evaluation and clearly charts your international education journey, providing evidence of your achievements (as well as your challenges) on your way to attaining International School status.”
“You have created a robust and imaginative international learning environment based on the special needs of your students and characterised by innovative areas of interest.”
“Your relationships with your partner schools have worked very well and seem to have developed into mutually stimulating partnerships, generating some very good ideas in terms of the types of cross-curricular collaborative activities that you could deliver in order to bring your international education to life in a contextualised and tangible way. Your ‘International Education Week 2014’ and ‘Creative Arts Week 2015’ activities are good examples of this kind of work.”
“You have done well to embrace the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as part of UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools scheme. This will definitely give you an advantage in terms of understanding and expertise in international education. Once again, congratulations on the work you have done so far and best wishes for your continued success in the future. Well done.”
Thank you to all who have contributed and for supporting international activities at VEC.
