Building community together – message from the Chair of the Parents' Association

On behalf of the Parents’ Association (PA) Dover, I am delighted to extend a very warm welcome to the Dover Campus community. 

PA Dover is a volunteer organisation which, together with our friends at PA East, encourages parents to actively support the mission, values and strategy of UWC South East Asia. We’re here to help make education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future. By helping parents connect with one another and to other important groups, we contribute significantly to one of the College’s most important strategic goals: to build a united, diverse and strong community.   

PA Dover organises an exciting and diverse array of events and activities, from large, campus-wide events, to social coffees and lunches, to regular and one-off activities or outings. We provide a forum for parents to discuss matters concerning students, help the students in their own fundraising and community activities as well as supporting the welfare of students and staff of the College.  

There are many different ways to get involved and make a difference. We welcome parents to join us in the programmes that we offer throughout the year, be it as a committee or team member, volunteering when you have time, or by simply attending our various events. Whatever level of participation you choose, you’ll have great fun and your time and involvement will contribute to a vibrant College community.  

As an alumnus of the College, I know what a special place UWCSEA is — for students, staff and parents alike. I hope you join us and discover this for your family. Please contact us at
