Brief history of VMA.
VMA was founded in 1984 by the merging of institutions that offered programmes in trades, mechanics, household studies and additional studies after 10th grade. During the first school
year VMA had 780 students, however recent years have seen that number increase to over 1200. In addition, each year VMA has 300 - 500 students using distance learning for their studies.
The current number of staff at the school is almost 200.
