Saturday 12th September saw our annual “Back to School Party” for all pupils both boarding and day scholars. The evening was fired off by a magnificent barbecue in the outer area of the science and PE building that run from 6-8pm and, during that time, saw a constant stream of pupils and teachers queuing up to gather a varied assortment of meat, vegetables, fruits and dainties on offer as well as various soft-drinks. It was wonderful to see the many smiling and excited faces as they walked to their seats with their plates brimming with food ready to chat and laugh with their friends.
As part of WASCZ's commitment to Outdoor Education, this weekend, WASCZ hosted the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award China National Award Office and teachers from 6 schools around China, including from as far away as Chengdu. Delegates took part in Level 2 training. This training means the teachers know how to support pupils take part in the DofE Award, particularly the outdoor education part, called the 'Adventurous Journey'. Adventurous journeys are undertaken by all pupils at WASCZ and conducting them in a safe, educational and fun way is central to our ethos.
Sport forms an integral and important part of School life. All pupils take part in sport every day with the focus being on team sports.
Staff at the School are highly qualified and experienced graduates of major universities, the majority coming from the UK.
Pupils at WAIS are offered an exceptionally wide range of activities and experiences beyond the classroom.
