A partnership between the two schools in the village of Saphanthong Tai. Lao primary school and Vientiane International School
Established in 2010
The Sister School Agreement. The establishment of the Sister School relationship grew out of a VIS Student Council Project to provide a library building for the local primary school. Today, the relationship far exceeds the fund raising focus that began in 2008 and the benefits of the sister school relationship flow both ways.
“VIS is proud of the relationship with our sister school. The bonds of friendship and mutual respect assist both our communities to learn and develop together.” Greg Smith VIS Director
“Service is a big part of who we are as a school community and one of the student council’s foci is on educating youth. Last year we finished building the library and this year we were able to achieve our goal of providing the library with books, furniture and improving the facility, with the community's help.” Clara Lachet VIS Student Council President
