On October 28th, UWC Thailand our Head of School Lural Ramirez kicked off a project called “Discover UWC Thailand” aimed at both promoting our school and opening a channel for our community of teachers, parents, staff and students to learn and discuss relevant topics relevant to education. As part of the project, the event launched the start of a set of webinars planned to run every 3 weeks for the remainder of the academic year.
The first session was focused on the “Benefits of Boarding” was a conversation facilitated by Lural and featured Mr. Lister Hannah, an experienced former Head of School and current UWC Thailand School Board member in a conversation with UWC Thailand Director of Residential Life, Kru Simone Sgarbossa.
During the session, Lister Hannah, our keynote speaker, pointed out “At the heart of the boarding experience is first an understanding of the nature of adolescents and teenagers; then seeing how boarding can contribute to the blossoming of young people passing through this challenging phase of their development”.
