EPAC: A Sport-Focused Program to Develop the Whole Student – Mentally and Physically!

 

   EPAC: Celebrating the Success of our PE Department!Our program, which has always had a strong focus on academics, is now proud to put the spotlight on our PE Department.Mr. Peter Wooden, Director of Sport, and Mr. Daniel Jacobs, have brought a renewed focus on sport and fitness to our program for which we are grateful!In addition to the normal PE activities as directed by the Thai Ministry of Education, these 2 gentlemen have started a highly successful after-school club activity which we had never had before this year, and the students seem to love it! We believe sport is important, partly because schools can use this as a way to help young people develop physical strength and agility, and also because we want our students to make exercise a habit which will keep them healthy and fit for the rest of their lives! Another way of looking at it is participation in sport builds within our students a sense of confidence which plays out in every area of their lives! We would like to congratulate Peter, Daniel, our 2 world-class instructors, and the students on making our program better through their efforts this year!
