Beyond the Classroom
After school, curriculum activities are an essential part of every student’s growth and development. The Winstedt School offers a wide range of Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) for students. Students are required to attend two ECA’s in the course of an academic year.
ECA’s include Taekwondo, Working with Clay, Dance, Circus Arts, Girl Scouts, Mandarin Club, Athletics, Cross Country, Soccer, Performance Arts, Music, Water Sports and Chess.
At TWS, we know the benefits of camp and how amazing it is to learn some of life’s more important lessons outdoors. Which is why camp is an annual event for our older students. Our students have ventured into the wilderness of Indonesia, the great outdoors of Singapore and the maze of natural coastal and secondary forests off the mainland.
Camp looks at the power and possibility in our students to unearth their strengths and face their fears.
Camp dismisses the fancy widgets and embraces important relationships - inter and intra-personal.
Camp demands a lot from our students because it does matter what every individual does. Getting comfortable away from home and in touch with the outdoors requires more than physical exertion. It requires a high level of personal responsibility and thoughtfulness toward the group.
Camp works toward increased independence and self-esteem whilst nature challenges students without keeping score.
As John Burroughs once said, “Natural settings teach far more than they preach.”
