Our Partner Organisation - Luganville International School

Luganville International School Inc. is a charitable organization founded on 31st May 2016 and located in Luganville, Santo, Vanuatu. The school was founded by a group of parents who wanted their children to attend a school with a quality education, offering the Australian Curriculum on the island of Espiritu Santo. The number of students enrolled has grown steadily from 8 students in 2016 to over 70 in 2021.

The purpose of Luganville International School (LIS) is to provide a quality education to the community of Luganville. The school aims to produce confident, self-motivated and open-minded students who can operate well both in local and international environments with a strong proficiency in English. LIS aims to produce students that are active members of their communities and the three main values that guide this are ‘Learning, Integrity and Service’.

LIS aims to become an integral part of the educational scene in Luganville and, more generally, in the northern region of Vanuatu. In future years, LIS hopes to extend the teaching through to high school years and to provide pathways to tertiary studies
