Since the success of Project Independence, the generosity of our school community continues to impact our campus and the learning experiences of our students.
Last year many of our students, staff and parents were involved in re-imagining many of our outdoor Primary School learning spaces. This summer, our maintenance team and external contractors stayed busy reviving our Lower Primary and Upper Primary courtyards to better align with our vision of learning. Outdoor courtyards have been revamped to extend learning from the classroom into shared spaces. Our wish is for students of various grades, interests and abilities to come together to learn, explore, develop skills and build relationships.
Thanks to the generous funding of one donor, we were able to dramatically improve these courtyards as well as enhance many smaller areas that were in need of repair.
A big thank you goes to Khun Boon Yongsakul, who graciously donated many couches, tables, lamps, etc. to help convert our spaces into cozy spaces for children to learn.
Another thank you goes to new and returning UWCT families including the Miller, Wong-Forhart, Siao, and David families, who all donated gently used items to support our vision of revitalising our areas while still staying true to our mission of sustainability.
