The Victorian International School of Sharjah opens in September.

With classes taught in English, the school will cater for both local and expatriate children and will initially take students from kindergarten to year 9 before expanding into year 10 to 12 in 2008.

Both the VCE and Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) will be offered at the coeducational school, which will eventually cater for 2600 students.

Michael Hewitt-Gleeson, Peter Cosgrove, John Tickell and other leading Australian speakers will work with more than 200 of Australia’s business people and thought-leaders at a unique workshop on the Gold Coast next weekend.
