Learners at Valistus are divided into sub units called “tribes” and each learner is allocated to one tribe at the moment of enrollment. We believe tribes existed in the past, when there was a much greater affinity for people towards nature. That’s the shift we need to have in future to overcome the challenges of the climate change.
Tribes reflect the family-oriented nature and its mission. Valistus learners are categorised as 4 tribes. Each house is named after one of the values they strongly demonstrate in their day to day life at Valistus.
