THE WORLD IS THE CLASSROOM
Thames is a small tightly-knit community that has its own unique brand of student life that aims to enrich and enhance the overall development of students. Being involved in various activities, both co-curricular and extra-curricular is an integral part of the Thames experience.
This is in line with the school’s philosophy that well-rounded learning necessitates making the world our classroom, whether it be domestically or internationally. Students can choose from clubs and organizations that revolve around sports, outdoor, leisure, communication media, and social outreach. Majority of the numerous projects and events during any given term are actually conceptualized and implemented by students.
Through such activities, all students are given an opportunity to apply and further develop their interests, skills, knowledge allowing for varying degrees of involvement as well. Similar to the academic programs, activities are also strongly characterized by collaboration and mentoring.
