VBS is open for all children aged up to 17 years.
To ensure that all toddlers have the one on one attention that they require, we ask that all children under the age of 6 be accompanied by a parent/caretaker for the entire session of VBS.

Signing In & Transport

All children must be signed in and out by a guardian when they are dropped off and picked up every day of VBS.

What to wear & bring

*  All children should wear comfortable clothes, hat and shoes that will allow for them to participate in arts and any games that they may play during the VBS sessions.

*  All children should be equipped with a water bottle, bible and pen.

*  If there is any medication to be administered, please ensure that it handed over to the medical volunteer for the day and the instructions clearly marked in their registration forms and on the medication cover. If in doubt, please contact the VBS Medical team.

*  All other material, required for VBS, will be provided during the sessions.

*  It is compulsory for all children to wear ID cards during the VBS sessions.

NOTE: All items belonging to the child should be clearly labelled with their name, in case it gets misplaced.

Food & Meals

Children will be provided with morning tea, lunch & afternoon tea on all the three days. All special dietary requirements should be clearly mentioned in the registration forms. Although we do our best to cater to all requirements, we recommend, for extreme cases, that the parents provide the special lunch for their children.


Medical Assistance

There will be a Registered Nurse (medical volunteer) onsite during the VBS. For emergency cases, the child will be taken to the hospital and the contact person, in the registration form, notified.


Every child will be encouraged to:

*  Participate in all activities,

*  Co-operate with all students, teachers and volunteers,

*  Interact in a safe and positive manner towards all other children and seniors, and

*  Understand their limits and why they have been set

Volunteers will make every effort to encourage and direct the children during the VBS sessions. However, should any child be found not to comply within reasonable behaviour, this will be discussed with their parents/caretakers.
