Clubs and Activities

There's a lot going on at BWYA! Scroll down to find out more...

Interested in science, robotics or electronic music? We have a club for that. Want to write news articles, produce TV shows or podcasts? We have a club for those as well. BWYA offers over 40 clubs and afterschool activities and we are adding more all the time, many of which are student led. We are sure that we can offer all of our students something that piques their interest outside of the classroom.

For our young learners clubs are offered at our Upper Primary Campus, with 12 clubs available although we are always happy to hear from parents and staff who would like to volunteer to host a club. The examples below are just a taste of the after-school clubs on offer and what they get up to. For my information about current clubs, please click here.

Cheerleading Club

In the cheerleading club, we learn dance moves and create our own dances. Designing our own costumes, we will cheer for the sports teams, and at the end of the season, put on a fantastic show at the WTS!

Lego Robotics

If you thought Lego was just about multi-coloured building blocks for kids to play with, then you’ve never seen anything like a Lego Robotics tournament. The BWYA Lego Robotics Club knows just what you can do with the world famous mini-bricks and they have the trophies to prove it. Club members learn simple robotics and how to make machines and mechanisms, competing with other schools in challenges and competitions. Budding engineers will love this club.

Forensics

Have you got a gift for getting your message across? BWYA’s famous Forensics club focuses on public speaking, debating and improvisation. There are five events in which students can participate: original oratory (writing your own speech), impromptu (receive a topic and prepare a 3-5 minute speech on the topic in under 90 seconds), debate (receive a topic and defend/oppose the topic with a teammate), duet acting (act out a scene with a partner), and oral interpretation (read a piece of literature dramatically). Forensics club members are always eager to improve their speaking and thinking skills and take part in competitions with other schools from Beijing and beyond.

Model United Nations

Model United Nations (also Model UN or MUN) is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants about current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy and the United Nations agenda. The participants role-play as diplomats representing a nation in a stimulated session of a committee of the United Nations such as the Security Council or the General Assembly. Participants research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions for world problems.

Classroom Without Walls Programme

As a major culture learning opportunity, the Classroom Without Walls Programme is designed to enrich and extend classroom learning. Activities cover five major areas: Culture, History, Community Service, Language Practice and Subject Learning. The programme aims to encourage the BWYA community to explore new ways to teach, experience and learn within and beyond the school. The focus will be different according to the subjects students of each grade are learning. Heads of Grade, Homeroom teachers and other BWYA teachers and administrators accompany the students on the trips. Professional staff from our long term cooperated educational companies in Beijing, Hong Kong and Yangshuo also provide help, support and first aid.

On the map opposite, you can see where the 2016-18 CWWP trips went in China. Outside of China, trips also included locations such as  Singapore, Thailand, America, Japan, and Germany.
