Our last week of school at Wells On Nut was our annual end-of-year Wells Without Walls (WWW). WWW is an initiative to empower students to take more control of their learning and explore new experiences, skills, and service learning opportunities. Hosted by our High School Student Council, it is a week dedicated to learning in various shapes and forms, inside and outside the school walls. Students and teachers played a large role in organizing the event and tailoring it to the needs and interests of the student body.
WWW aims to provide students with academic, CAS/co-curricular, experiential and service learning opportunities through student and teacher-led workshops, life skills and hands-on activities, sports, and service learning. Underlying these opportunities is the empowerment of our students and teachers as change-agents and leaders as they explore and showcase their various passions, skills, and talents, through collaboration and teamwork.
The last week was also a schoolwide Spirit Week, in which everyone raised school morale and spirit by dressing in pajamas, beach wear, as teachers or role models and dressing as a different age. The students and teachers engaged in various activities and workshops within the school walls, and trips outside of school in local communities.The field trips our students went on this week included:
Love Ocean Life (LOL) and SerWIS trip to SUP Station Canal Clean-up
Grade 9 trip to Siam Amazing Park
Greenhawks field trip to Science Center for Education
Grade 11 IB Visual Arts Trip to Bangkok Arts & Cultural Center
TerraCycle Canal Clean-up
In school, primary, middle and high school teachers and students shared their passions and had fun engaging in learning, teamwork, and bonding. There were a variety of workshops held to pique the interest of different students and age groups, including yoga & meditation, vegetarian cooking, Wells cat cafe, Zumba fitness, UV-resin workshop, takoyaki workshop, alumni Q&A panel and neurographic art. Our high school students displayed their very creative Science/Art collaboration projects in the Davinci project. The Visual and Performing Arts Department also hosted a primary and secondary talent show, with exciting musical, vocal and dance performances from both students and teachers!
Various workshops were hosted to encourage the collaboration between primary and high school students. The Thai Club taught Grade 1 how to make ‘bua loy’, a popular Thai dessert. Greenhawks hosted a sustainability workshop for Grade 3 students to teach them about plant care. Grade 3 and 5 students did fun and easy experiments in the Physics lab. Grade 4 students played a mini chess tournament hosted by the Chess club. The Grade 11 students also battled against the Grade 4 students in a Wells-hosted, ‘Are you smarter than a 4th grader?” To the high school students’ surprise, the Grade 4 students were the champions with their wealth of knowledge.
A big thank you goes out to all of the students, teachers, alumni and community members who worked hard and contributed to making this last week of the 2023 school year a meaningful and engaging one!
