Harrow Bangkok offers a wide and diverse range of activities which generally take place between 2:50 and 3:50 every day. Pupils from Year 1 upwards are expected to participate in a minimum of two activity sessions per week (boarders need to do four). Activities are geared toward the acquisition of motor skills for younger pupils with sporting and thinking activities both inside and outside of the classroom and we continue this development as pupils participate in sports teams and other activities in the Upper School. There are well over 100 different activities per season for pupils to choose from which include activities such as Lego, Orchestra, Choir, Model United Nations, Basketball, Football, Swimming, Duke of Edinburgh, Archery, Chess, Scrabble, Horse riding, Dance - to name but a few. Activities vary according to the season and an up-to-date list is published in the weeks before pupils sign up online for the season.
