Any newcomer to the UWCSEA community will be struck by how this large and complex College, with such a diverse community, is nevertheless so united in common purpose. Our UWC mission, to create a more peaceful and sustainable world, is both aspirational and profoundly challenging. This mission is brought to life each and every day through the teaching in our classrooms, conversations in the playgrounds, service in our community. It is also enacted in a global context as our alumni go out into the wider world and create their individual impact there.
It is also demonstrated powerfully in the spirit of philanthropy that lies at the heart of our community.
I have seen so many examples of the simple act of giving - of lifting others up - through volunteering and through donations. At UWCSEA we are determined to go above and beyond being a good international school to being a truly great UWC. That requires projects and plans outside of the scope of curriculum, and critically, this often falls beyond school fees. We have heady ambitions and concrete plans to welcome more scholars to our community, develop exciting projects to tackle sustainability issues head on, and to build and extend challenging and rewarding learning programmes.
I invite you to read more about our programmes - and, if your circumstances allow, to make a gift to our College.
Thank you for being part of this culture of giving.
