Activites Offered Season 1 2018-2019
At UWC Thailand, activities are a vital part of student life and learning. Our programme provides an opportunity to bring students, staff, parents as well as the wider community together for learning, competition, pleasure, recreation, performing and sharing. We believe that learning extends beyond the classroom and we encourage our students to take full advantage of the opportunities offered. By trying out new activities, students have a chance to explore their talents, meet new people, develop new skills and discover what they are passionate about. Our wide range of activities enables students to explore projects and passions in Service, Creativity, Sports, Social and Culture, and are run during lunchtimes, after-school and on weekends.
The combined CCA/ECA provides opportunities for all age groups through the vast majority of activities cater for students in Grade 1 to Grade 12.
The school year is divided into three activity seasons, allowing students to explore a wide variety of interests throughout the year. The programme offers activities in sports, music, service, leadership as well as arts and drama.

The activities offered by UWC Thailand staff are generally free of charge and are called Co-Curricular Activities (CCA’s). In some cases, we ask for a small financial contribution for consumables needed for the activity.
Joining an activity, team or service does require commitment and we encourage our students and parents to carefully consider the demands made on their time before signing up. By joining an activity, our students will gain skills in time management, self-organisation but above all, they will learn the value of commitment by sticking to what they signed up for.
This year we have agreed with most of our ECA partners to align the start and finish timings for the vast majority of activities offered, reducing staggered dismissals and opening up opportunities for our students. There can be exceptions when activities in session 2 go off campus or have a later finish time, however, for the most part, timings will be as follows:
Session 1: Starting time 2.40pm – Ending time 3.30pm
Session 2: Starting time 3.40pm – Ending time 4.30pm
Session 3: Starting time 4.30pm – Ending time 6.00pm

TOMA (Mandarin Lessons)
Gymnastics Club Phuket
Gymnastics Club Phuket works with children aged 3 – 18 years to work through our Gym Club Awards Scheme where they can learn the basic fundamental moves of the sport, have fun, make new friends and achieve certificates and colour bracelets. As the Woman’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) Program is followed in Asia our strong, although young, gymnasts can work through the WAG Levels 1-10 if they wish to compete.
All students have 4 choices: British Gymnastics (BAGA) awards program with colour bracelets, WAG Level training, Recreational Gymnastics or break dance Ninja classes. We aim for our sessions to be fun, productive and structured, with the gymnasts working with experienced and enthusiastic coaches who we hope will give them a fantastic experience of gymnastics, and help them develop their skills.
We currently have over 91 students attending our gymnastics club. As the popularity of gymnastics grows, we view it as a good sign that gymnastics is growing both in Thailand and within the international school community. We are pleased to announce that we now have 10% more gymnasts in the program this academic year compared to last year particularly in our highest Level 4 WAG class with more secondary girls. This is a good sign that our gymnasts are passionately engaged in their training and sport.
