EOUTDOOR & EXPERIENTIAL EDUCATION
At UWC Thailand International School believe that in an age of growing digital entertainment, social isolation, and inactivity— the need for Outdoor Education (OEE) has never been greater. To answer this need, learning at UWC Thailand International School extends well beyond the classroom; aiming to expose students to the incredible natural diversity of Phuket and beyond. In fact, we view the outdoors as a classroom unto itself, where physically-challenging experiences have a powerful impact upon a young person’s intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and moral development. Our students’ outdoor experiences—starting in Grade 1—encompass planning, preparation and participation in a range of activities including hiking, climbing, kayaking, sailing, and moutain biking; all of which are aspects of our yearly camps and/or expeditions.
To round out our student’s educational experience, UWCT offers a tremendous-—and vital—array of Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) and Extracurricular Activities (ECAs) designed to bring students and the wider community together for learning, competition, recreation, performances, and sharing. These activities help to broaden each student’s experience and enhance their learning by developing key skills including team work, confidence, and self-management.
