Manta Parent Teacher Association (PTA)

Who we are & what we do

A group of parents, teachers and staff helping to build connections between all of our diverse community members, and to provide opportunities to engage in school community activities guided by the school’s mission and values, to enrich the UWC Thailand experience for all. 

We organise events and activities that help us get to know each other whilst working on projects we find fulfilling. Everyone is welcome to join! There are many ways to get involved, based on your interests and availability, and it’s a great way to get to know our community better. 

If you’d like to get involved, please email us at

We spent a lovely day out on the water in our very own long tail boats, exploring the mangroves around the Mai Khao end of this beautiful island. We were treated to a surprise break with delicious snacks on a sand bank before it was covered by the rising tide. We made new friends as we shared a delicious lunch. The Phuket Discovery Tour is a great way to experience Phuket.

Manta PTA Parent


Manta PTA organises two major events each year - Festival of Light and Intercultural Day - as well as smaller-scale events including Phuket Discovery Tours, United World Crust and Table Top Sales. If you are interested in supporting one of these events, please email us! Any contribution, large or small, is greatly appreciated and we’ve found it’s a wonderful way to get to know each other.

Manta PTA is also happy to support other events throughout the year (past examples include Lunar New Year, Loy Kratong and Pi Day) based on volunteer interest. If you would like to lead the celebration of a tradition that is important to you, please contact us!
