Wellington Extra seeks to provide Wellington pupils, and those from the wider community, a fantastic opportunity to learn, develop and play in a way that promotes the Wellington identity and values. By engaging in our programmes, pupils will have the opportunity to imbue the Wellington Values and develop the Wellington Identity. The Extra Programme ensures that we offer a consistent extra-curricular programme which is imbedded within all the groups colleges.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

When they join the School, all students are allocated to a House, in which they will remain for the duration of their time at Wellington. Pre-Prep students begin to understand the importance of being part of a House through our Housepoint rewards. They also begin to take part in House events, such as swimming galas and creative competitions. Prep School students come together in their Houses to talk about the virtues of being part of a team and learn how this helps develop their understanding of our core values and  the Wellington Identity. Housemasters appoint Head of House each year, who have additional responsibilities in the House. Each of these positions gives the student an opportunity to develop their leadership, organisational and interpersonal skills, working closely with their Housemaster and peers.
In 2006, it was Wellington College in England that pioneered the teaching of Wellbeing as a lesson and we embrace this vitally important area of twenty-first century education. Wellbeing classes themselves are just one part of our fundamental philosophy – that we should treat everyone, ourselves included, as well as possible, and that we can train ourselves to do this in a deliberate, reflective and rational way.

  • Physical: developing an up-to-date understanding of the principal requirements for having and maintaining health and fitness.
  • Positive relationships: exploring how best to define and develop positive relationships with fellow students, teachers, family members and others.
  • Perspective: building emotional resilience – something like a psychological immune system. This involves developing the thinking skills that enable us to recognise, confront, contextualise and overcome adversity.
  • Engagement: recognising the importance of maintaining a healthy curiosity about the world around us and a willingness to engage with it.
  • The world: understanding and promoting ways of living responsibly and well in a rapidly-changing consumer society. This strand also encourages students to consider their place in the world and help define a positive future role for themselves.
  • Meaning and purpose: making sense of the purpose of meaning and the meaning of purpose.

Careful study and engagement with these ideas helps to strengthen the emotional resilience and analytical skills that are so necessary for flourishing in a complex and unpredictable world.

SERVICES

Lunchtime should be an important part of the day for everyone. Healthy, nourishing and delicious food, pleasant surroundings, a convivial atmosphere – students and adults together, chatting and enjoying their time, benefit us all.

We teach excellent table manners and expect them to be used at all times; we also spend time in and out of the classroom discussing and considering the cultural and nutritional aspects of food with our students. Our school food is all prepared fresh every day in the Junior School kitchens by Epicure, an outstanding company that deals specifically with international schools in Thailand.  All students are required to eat school lunch, unless they have a special exemption for religious or severe dietary reasons.  In general, both faith-based and allergy-based requirements are catered for within the available menu. Students in Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception eat in their own charming Early Years Dining Hall on the ground floor of the Junior School building; from Year 1, everyone eats in the Junior Dining Hall, located between the Junior School and the Swimming Pool complex. All weekly menus are published in advance here; costs are show below.

To support the health, safety and wellbeing of all our students and staff, Wellington College has an excellently equipped Health Centre, which is run by fully-qualified nursing professionals. The Centre is located on the First Floor of the Admin Building, directly above the Admissions Office.

The Health Centre holds copies of the confidential medical records of every student, information supplied by parents via the Health and Medical Declaration Form completed at the point of entry to the School. The Health Centre attends to injuries or illnesses according to clear guidelines and will often contact parents during, or even prior to, this process. It is, therefore, very important that the School holds current contact details for all parents/guardians. If children become ill during school time, parents are contacted and asked to collect them. If a child sustains a minor injury, parents are informed by either phone or email, depending on the severity. In cases of injury that require immediate hospital treatment, parents are contacted and an ambulance called. In most cases, the child will be taken to Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital near the School. If a child has been prescribed medication by a doctor that needs to be administered during the school day it should be brought into school, clearly labelled in English with the child’s name, class, time, dosage and an indication of the purpose of the medication. This should be marked for the attention of the school nurse – your child’s teacher will pass this on to the Health Centre. Items such as Ventolin inhalers may be left, clearly labelled with the child’s name, in the care of the class teacher as well as the Health Centre, to be on hand immediately if required. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child and the school has adequate supplies of the medication they need.

For the convenience of our pupils and parents we provide a daily school bus service in cooperation with Montri Transportation Service, picking up and dropping off at a wide range of locations both near the school and across Bangkok.

Each bus is supervised by a locally-employed Bus Monitor, who is responsible for pupils’ behaviour, safety and wellbeing during the journey. For the latest details of bus fees and timetables, parents should contact the School directly.

The school uniform shop, located near the Lobby behind the Brick Duke, is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday during school hours (8:00 am to 4:00 pm).

The full range of uniform items is available to purchase from the Shop, as well as optional extras and even parent items. All students are expected to look smart and well-presented in their uniforms.
