Our mission has and shall always be to be the wind beneath the wings of the Vistaians helping them rise and soar in their chosen path. For some that path leads towards pursuing sports professionally – something that requires intense training and frequent travels and missing out regular classes. We offer adequate support to such children and ensure that their academic progress is not completely ignored.

Vista International School has always been steadfast in its commitment towards providing a holistic growth environment for the students by ensuring equal importance being given to scholastic and co-scholastic pursuits. Co – Scholastics, at VIS, is not a mere activity for the students to engage in. It is an exercise that has lasting impacts on the way the young minds are shaped – from nurturing healthy competition to developing their skills for effective teamwork, to having a positive outlook towards life.

To be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. To take on every challenge with enthusiasm and revel in the experience gained rather than focusing on the outcome.

The sports curriculum at VIS is conceptualized and designed to help students work on and improve key skill areas such as strength, speed, endurance, agility, flexibility, control and balance. The physical benefits garnered from sports aside, students learn valuable life lessons on the field such as team-work, leadership, confidence and self-discipline.

The Sports facilities at Vista International School offers a range of outdoor and indoor sports options that helps the students maintain their physical health and fitness. It further gives them a chance to discover their aptitude in the field of sports and athletics and helps them thrive under the watchful guidance of our extremely proficient P.E teachers and coaches.

Vista International School has recently revamped its sports facilities which now boasts of a well-maintained athletics track, cricket pitch, world-class basketball and tennis courts, volleyball and handball courts, synthetic turf, and a skating rink. The school offers 10 different activities and games to choose from. These include Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Tennis, Skating, Table Tennis, Handball, Volleyball, among others. We believe sports is an integral part of the education of a child that has paramount importance in ensuring their holistic growth. Students are encouraged to explore a variety before finding their calling in a particular type of sport that they can further build their skill on.

PET Classes and Mass PT:

From the very inception of their journey at Vista International School, students are trained in a well-conceptualized approach to ensure they build a love and appreciation for physical activity and fitness. Targeted exercise and games helping the young students build proper hand-eye coordination, strength and stamina are a part of the weekly schedule. Constant exposure to these training programmes helps the students appreciate the benefits they can reap from regular physical activities. Building on that first connection, students are slowly trained to master the technique and skill of various sports to help them reach an informed decision regarding which sport they would wish to pursue further on.

Mass PT is conducted weekly where the entire school come together to take part in some fun and engaging physical activity – be it aerobics or Zumba and find the joy in growing fitter together.

After-School Coaching:

The school also offers specialized after-school coaching for all students who wish to take their skills to the next level. Students at Vista International School also represent the school in several sports events and competitions at inter-school, state, national and international levels throughout the year.

The coaches at VIS are experienced and committed to help students develop sportsmanship spirit, fair play, and teach them the ability to work hard and collaborate. We have also partnered with EduSports, a reputed Indian sports education organization, to implement a structured and holistic sports curriculum at VIS. All coaches and activity staff at the school are offered professional development courses before and during the start of the academic year to constantly improve the quality of coaching.

Arts and Craft:

Art & Craft is an integral part of our curriculum and it helps the students explore the full spectrum of their creativity. We do not wish to push students to follow a path blindly, we wish for them to be able to identify their innate potential and pave a way that suits them and their special talent. Our extremely skilled teachers guide the students to perfect the technique of art while letting their unbridled creativity take the spotlight. Our visual arts and craft curriculum coaches’ students on various forms of indigenous folk art forms of India, contemporary art, art across a range of mediums including crayon, pastel, water colour, oil painting etc

Clay Art :

It helps improve eye/hand coordination and build both gross and fine motor skills, including the small muscles in hands and fingers. This helps with dexterity and is beneficial for children colouring, cutting and writing in a school setting. Clay play can be a very invigorating, yet soothing activity.

Dance:

Dance improves flexibility, coordination, balance, range of motion, stamina, muscle tone, strength and posture. But physical fitness is just one of many benefits of dance that can enhance your child’s life in so many ways.

Music:

Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words.

Theatre Art Club:

Performing arts are basically arts or skills that require a performance in front of a public audience. Examples are acting, singing and dancing. Other forms of the Performing Arts include opera, theatre, magic or illusion performances, mime, spoken word, recitation and public speaking. This club helps in finding the budding Actors, anchors, journalists, choreographers, etc. In sharpening their skills.

Students can choose their club based on their interest and what they would wish to pursue. Our Co-Curricular and Sports Clubs add the perfect condiment to enhance our student’s growth and learning experience and help them explore their protean talents.

Literary Club:

The perfect place for our literary enthusiasts to explore a language to its full extent. This club helps learners develop their skills at various activities like elocution, declamation, debates, JAMs, recitation, monologues, extempore etc.

Culinary Club:

For those who find their joy in eating and find food to be the perfect language of love, the culinary club is a befitting abode. This club helps students explore and create a range of delectable fireless dishes. Students are also coached to have a proper know-how about healthy meal planning and how to make smart nutrition choices.

Eco Club:

The Eco Club is a perfect place for the avid nature lovers. The students of this club are often given the responsibility to plant and tend for the school herb garden. This place becomes a perfect knowledge-sharing space when children mutually learn about and nurture their love for nature.

Creative Writing Club:

Students whose pen multitask as swords adept at driving a point home, or a time machine to transport even the most reluctant minds to a fantastical place, are perfectly suited for the Creative Writing Club. Students give wings to their flair for writing by learning about and exploring various genres of writing.

Community Service Activity Club:

For students who are staunchly committed to doing their part for the betterment for the society find themselves at home in this club. The CSA club of Vista encourages students to actively take part in activities that would bring about a positive change in the society. This in turn plays a pivotal role towards their personal growth, making them empathetic and humane.

Equality Club:

In partnership with Rubaroo, Hyderabad, the students of equality club get the chance to build their interpersonal skills as well as enhance their social awareness. A curated module of exercises and activity ensures that the students emerge as well-rounded, empathetic and a perfect embodiment of a progressive individual.

Gavel Club:

The students who view themselves as leaders and feel that they have a unique view on matters that could make a difference, are perfectly at home in this club. A part of the international Toastmasters club, the gavel club of Vista International School – styled as ‘The Ciceronian Squad of Vista’ – gives a chance to the students to build on their leadership skills through speaking, and collaboratively learn and grow as public speakers.

Vista International School has commenced its journey of online exchange program for students with JDO Foundation.

The JDO Foundation is an educational non-profit foundation located in Littleton, Colorado – U.S, which facilitates global collaboration among partner schools to inspire creative and innovative collaborative learning that enables students to be accomplished, well-informed digital citizens.

JDO’s mission is to provide professional development for teachers and establish a long-term collaboration experience for students where they are trained to use technology innovatively and creatively in the classroom with their international peers.

The project facilitates 1:1 classroom collaboration of Vista International School with an international partner school on an annual basis for select students of Grade 6 and 7.

Students selected to be a part of this undertaking get the unique opportunity to widen their approach towards education and solidify their understanding and appreciation for cultures and thoughts starkly different from their own

 

This AY 22-23Global Partner Schools are:

  • Grade 6 is collaborating with St. Ita’s Primary SchoolBelfast, N. Ireland
  • Grade 7 is collaborating with Primary School, Lamia, Greece

Students of Vista International School explored the treasures of the vibrant pink city, Jaipur. The old-world charm of the city – with its intricate architectural marvels, history, culture, art and food – held them all in thrall. Students regaled in the stories of the city – as explained by the expert guide – tried their hand at block printing and blue pottery and nurtured themselves with the exquisite Marwari food. They came back with their soul satiated and memories to last a lifetime.

Rhapsody

Vista International School has teamed up with Rhapsody to bring about a revolutionary approach towards Art Integrated learning. Rhapsody’s paradigm shifting pedagogy incorporates award-winning learning models that uses art-integrated exercises to maximize the creative potential of a child. While implementing the spirit and vision of NEP 2020, this programme is curated to enhance a student’s social-emotional learning skills. Rhapsody trainers take sessions with the students, implementing their curated curriculum, ushering the students into a new era of learning, centered on Creative Intelligence that combines Artistic Creativity (both visual and performing), Cognitive Creativity (facilitating creative thinking, alternative ways of approaching STEM and other subject learning), Collaborative Creativity (that builds their social skills), and Design and Innovation (implementing courses on Creative Coding, Design Thinking, among others).

Rhapsody’s outlook towards approaching ‘learning’ aligns seamlessly with Vista International School’s mission to imbibe 21st century skills in students and this partnership has been more than fruitful to ensure that students experience the true ‘joy’ in learning.

Internships

Internships are veritable windows to the outside world that gives the students a glimpse of what awaits them once they have outgrown the school. Internships enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through real-world experience. By working to secure an internship of their choice, students are encouraged to develop expertise in fields that best suit their interests. VIS actively encourages the students to look pursue internship options to widen their horizon and be in a position to make an informed decision regarding their choice of career.

Collaboration with MANUU

Vista International School has forged a partnership with Maulana Azad National Urdu University to implement the visions put forth through NEP 2020 regarding integration of vocational education in secondary schools.

To help realize the full potential of India’s demographic dividend, NEP 2020 heavily focused on the need to integrate vocational education into the curriculum – an objective that is slated to be reached in a phased manner over the next decade. This move calls for secondary schools to collaborate with ITI’s, Polytechnics and local industries and set up skill labs for the same. Vista International School has partnered with MANUU to help the students achieve their full potential and reap the benefits of a well-rounded approach to education.

Metamorphosis

VIS has partnered with Metamorphosis to fuel the entrepreneurial fire in the minds of our young students. Metamorphosis is a program that seeks to make young students aware of their immense potential and empowers them with the right skill set to think, to create and to lead path-breaking innovations with their program. Through this program, students are encouraged to think beyond the mundane, and to push themselves out of their comfort zones to explore their full potential.

Makerspace

Vista International School has collaborated with ENTECRES Lab, to help students approach the concepts of science, particularly physics and engineering with a fresh hands-on approach. The unique program offered by ENTECRES lab helps the Vistaians cement their cognition on concepts that would probably not be much impactful had they been taught solely based on textbook content. This collaboration is a step towards helping the students approach any subject with a broader perspective that transcends the information contained between the covers of a textbook – a lesson that empowers them to be critical thinkers and unmatched problem solvers.

Work Education

Students are encouraged to explore their creative and artistic side and give wings to their aesthetic appeal by taking part in various programs under Work Education. Be it jewelry making, or art – Work Education gives an opportunity to the learners to explore beyond the rigid boundaries of academia and sharpen their creative acumen.
