The identity of Aurora



Aurora International School of the Arts is a school inspired by the Reggio Emilia experience of learning and teaching. The school established and began designing the concept and facilities in September 2015. Aurora first opened its doors to children in March 2016 in a setting chosen to embrace the concept of creating a peaceful and comfortable ‘home away from home’ environment for children to learn and grow in. The School fosters life-long learning for children aged 1 year to 15 years from Nursery, Preschool, Junior Primary to Middle School supporting self-discovery, imagination, and creativity.

Health and Well-being

Well-being – The health and wellbeing of the child are protected and nurtured. 

All children have the right to have their health and wellbeing promoted and to be protected from harm. They also have a right to experience affection, warmth and consistent care. 

Protecting and nurturing health and wellbeing includes paying attention to aspects of physical care, such as healthy eating and nutrition and opportunities for physical activity. Safe, stable and responsive environments support the development of self-worth, identity, confidence and enjoyment, together with emotional regulation and self-control.

The Language of Food

“The nutritional educational project, which draws content and communicative strategies from the kitchen, tends first and foremost to create a sense of well-being in the kitchen and families, fostering a balanced relationship between health, taste, and the pleasure of being at the table together.”

Nursery & Preschool Nursery & Preschool

Nursery & Preschool

Children in our Nursery and Preschool develop number sense and literacy skills through everyday projects and provocation in their daily exploration.

Play sets the foundation for the development of critical social and emotional knowledge and skills. Through play, children learn to forge connections with others and to share, negotiate and resolve conflicts, as well as learn self-advocacy skills. Play also teaches children leadership as well as group skills. Furthermore, play is a natural tool that children can use to build their resilience and coping skills, as they learn to navigate relationships and deal with social challenges as well as conquer their fears.

“We think of a school for young children as an integral living organism, as a place of shared lives and relationships among many adults and very many children. We think of school as a sort of construction in motion, continuously adjusting itself.”

– Loris Malaguzzi

Primary Primary


Our educational philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia experience within a Vietnamese cultural context. Responsibility, community involvement, respect, and sustainability are at the core of what drives our school. Under-pinning our educational philosophy is the image of the child: a competent child, full of knowledge, potential, and curiosity, active in constructing his or her own knowledge through interactions with others and the environment around them. By adopting the New Zealand curriculum, we are able to integrate a Reggio Emillia-inspired philosophy, with an Inquiry-Based approach to teaching and learning practices.

Facilities and New Senior Primary to Middle School Villa 

Senior Primary and Middle School learners learn, explore, and play in our new Primary and Middle School Villa. This villa includes, as well as our beautiful classrooms, a science lab, art atelier, language labs, and more, where learners can learn about multiple subject areas with a range of specialists who we refer to at Aurora as our collaborative teachers. We are extremely fortunate in the design of this villa which offers a range of outdoor spaces for learners to play, read, plant, conduct research, and explore. 

Our vision for learning in Senior Primary and Middle School 

As in Preschool and Primary, we maintain our focus upon the child at the centre of all we do and our vision of them as capable individuals with ownership and agency over their learning. Our vision of an Aurora Learner is equally applicable for the Middle School children. However, there are some differences to teaching and learning for these grade levels. he learners are increasingly independent and eager to research and complete projects alone and in groups. We allow greater flexibility for them to do this so that they can plan events such as the Aurora Olympics, end of year disco, etc. on a broader scale and engage in more learning outside the classroom in the community to gain more authentic understanding of sustainability and social issues in the local area.

Languages & Cultures Languages & Cultures

Languages & Cultures

Children make use of language to express feelings and attitudes, negotiate, create and retell stories, communicate information and solve problems. Opportunities are provided for learners to have sustained conversations, have fun with words, use complex language and grammatical structures, and increase their vocabulary. Contextual learning is at the forefront of our teaching strategies. At Aurora, our teachers understand the importance of creating meaningful, relevant learning engagements, where learners can relate new information to the world they already know.

Enrichment Programs

Enrichment activities can help children develop skills that help them perform better in school and home life. Studies found that children who had access to enrichment activities had better work habits than children who don’t take part in these activities. Enrichment activities can help teach children skills such as concentration, persistence, and problem-solving, which can help them to do better in other areas of their learning. Many enrichment programs, such as art, music, and dance, allow children to express themselves in new ways they may not normally be exposed to. This self-expression leads to a greater exploration of creativity. Enrichment programs help your child learn more about themselves and how they can express their feelings and thoughts in a creative way. Increased self-expression and creativity can also lead to increased confidence.
