CCAs, ECAs, clubs and societies
CCAs are a compulsory rotation of activities built into the timetable on the last lesson on a Tuesday and Thursday. For Senior School students, CCA will take place on Wednesday period 8 and 9.
ECAs are a range of optional activities that children can subscribe to after school each day.
Optional activities for Year 1 upwards that take place during lunchtimes, run by teaching staff as a chance to follow interests and explore them further.
We want our students to be individuals with their own unique mix of talents and interests. Not only is this important for their general wellbeing, but this also allows them to access the world's best universities who now want much more than academic results. This is why we attach such importance to the students’ involvement in our co-curricular programme. We have a unique mix of clubs, societies, CCAs and ECAs which involve sports, academic and creative pursuits.
From year 1, students are able to attend clubs and societies during lunchtimes. They are also able to participate in a rotation of co-curricular activities within the school day to find new experiences. These are run by our teaching staff as they know the students best, which allows them to broaden and enrich their curricular timetables.
We have optional activities after school every day of the week for reception students and older. These are after the academic curriculum and are led by our specialist teachers and our external experts to allow students to pursue their interests or to develop a new passion.
From Year 1, students are able to attend optional clubs and societies at lunchtime. For students, the co-curricular programme will provide new challenges, give them the chance to make a difference to the lives of others or simply the freedom to approach a new situation by themselves to discover and develop skills they did not realise they had. Whether your child is a footballer who needs to try new things, or an interested young person who wants to try anything, King’s Bangkok will help them be a well-rounded student who can find a balance between work and play in their lives.
King’s College International School Bangkok l is proud to have been awarded International Award Centre status and to be able to provide this incredible, world class award to our students.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement Award and equips young people for life in over 140 countries and territories across the globe.
The Award is available to all young people aged 14‐24. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements consistently. The Award encourages young people to design their own programme of activities, set their own goals and challenge themselves to achieve their aims.
Since its launch 60 years ago, the Award has inspired millions of young people to transform their lives. Through non formal education, the Award can play a critical role in a young person’s personal development. You can find out more here www.intaward.org
