This year’s presentation took place on 19th August at Satree Phuket School when 160 students were awarded their scholarship certificate. The club was also well represented by both members and former PIWC scholarship graduates. One of our former students, Sao, now works at The Phuket Gazette and put together this piece shown on PGTV.

Research has shown that moving can be one of the most stressful times in people’s lives, up there with death and divorce. Newcomers to Phuket may find it difficult at first to settle in, and athletic activities are a great way to meet likeminded people. It’s easy to strike up a conversation while empathising that you both can’t keep up with the young Zumba instructor!
The third Thursday of March each year is always important for the Phuket International Women’s Club because it is when the club has its Annual General Meeting to review the achievements of the previous year and also to begin planning for the year ahead. This year over 30 members came to the meeting on March 17 and over 50 members attended the lunch that followed. Le Meridian Phuket Beach Resort hosted both events and did a wonderful job.
PHUKET: The Phuket International Women’s Club (PIWC) will reached out to yet another flock of young minds with more than 2 million baht worth of scholarships on August 19.

Following the long school holiday break the Phuket International Women’s Club (PIWC) has begun assessments for its 2016 scholarship program.

April luncheon @ Bampot
Approximately 30 members and guest and one darling little toddler! enjoyed a wonderful lunch on April 21st at Bampot Kitchen and Bar. They are not usually open for lunch so we were very privileged that they opened for us. Chef Jamie and his team served a delicious array of food; served family style and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. As it was also Maggy Wigman’s 60th birthday, a special cake was served along with a wonderful donation of bubbles from the birthday girl herself. A very pleasant afternoon indeed.
On 24th of May, 5 ladies went out against torrential rain to k. Somchai’s garden to see rare helliconia and few sorts of Musa of different colours. There, they also found other plants which were not grown elsewhere in Phuket such as Monstera deliciosa which they use it’s leaves for flower arrangements. And others are Passiflora foedita ( stinking passion flower,), an interesting sweet fruit when it is ripe. It was an interesting trip and after delicious lunch at Vareeya Resort and Restsurant, we all got home with one or two Gardenia gjllerupii from Joan. Thank you very much.
