While writing pieces and artworks will be picked up by us, a focus will also be placed on videos, films, animation, and music; art forms that other TAS physical publications like Expression aren’t able to publish. Furthermore, our club aims to create a community of creatives all in one place. Students from all different creative circles will read, write, and participate in monthly club meetings, where they can get to know each other and each other’s interests. In this way I believe our club could coexist and support other clubs. As a bonus, this allows students from all different creative circles to mingle.

An activity that we host within TAS is the Drinkathon, which aims to remind students of our privilege of having an adequate supply of water. In addition, we spend time working with and teaching Lower Schoolers about the pressing issue of marine pollution. As part of the TAS community, our goal is to remind the students of our privileges and teach them how to help other communities in need. We aim to inform TAS students about the impacts of water pollution and the extent to which all living things can be affected by this issue on a global scale.

Martial Arts Club (MAC)

We have already done Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing outings, and look forward to doing Hapkido, Muay Thai and Wing Chun. This club only teaches the initials and basics of each martial art covered; if a student wishes to go more in-depth in their learning, we will refer them to the martial arts gym themselves. By only teaching the initials of each martial art, we give more time to our students to learn a wider variety of combat sports and thus expose them to the art better than if they were to go in depth in a single sport.

Medical Frontiers

Medical Frontiers aims to train and educate students about the modern-day healthcare system by working with prominent guest speakers and organizing healthcare activities to simulate the inner workings of the medical field.

Our mission is a club that hopes for its members to create music, whether it be songwriting or instrumental or through any medium, and hopefully the music is an outlet for them to express themselves. We emphasize how you do not need any musical experience in order to participate in this club, but simply an interest to delve deeper into this activity. Many people often feel that they might have a lack of musical talent that would prevent them from making any of their own, personal music, but we are here to change that sentiment, and instead encourage students to feel free to explore, learn, and create music in this club.

South Asian Culture Club

South Asian Culture Club aims to help the TAS community understand what South Asian culture is. In addition, we host a variety of activities so that people can understand what the different parts of South Asian culture are while having fun at the same time. Our activities range from making art, to cooking food, to watching movies. For example, we host a diya painting event around Diwali in which club members painted Indian candles and got to eat South Asian sweets. We also host movie nights in which we watch Bollywood classics in the courtyard and eat South Asian snacks.

Special Sports Society

Special Sports Society aims to spread awareness about and support Paralympic sports in Taiwan, through fundraising for and volunteering in Paralympic Organizations in Taiwan. Because the special sports community in Taiwan has long been neglected and underrepresented, it lacks the funding and physical support from other governmental and humanitarian organizations. Through collaborating with special sports organizations in Taiwan, our club seeks to help fundraise and volunteer in the activities, in order to help support the special sports community in Taiwan.

Statistics Club

This club will operate in three divisions. One being a survey group, which are tasked with creating surveys and dealing with surveying samples. This group will be deciding what type of surveys and surveying methods will be the most suitable for the topic of interest. The other group will be the data analysis group, which uses different skills to analyze or even visualize the data so the audience can better understand our analysis, using computer programming and machine learning. Last but not least, a poster group. This group will be in charge of making posters according to the analysis made by the second group.

Each year we receive a list of hard physics problems involving diverse topics ranging from fluid dynamics, to kinematics, to light and optics. For each problem, we conduct research, design experiments, and collect data in order to find the best answer. Oftentimes, the process takes several months from start to finish -- including months of refining our answer until we reach a final form. At the end of the year we participate in a tournament in Taiwan (TYPT), where we argue the merits of our results and theoretical approaches against local teams. Each year, our excellent performance has yielded medals at the tournament.

Tiger Minds

Our aspiring goal for this club is to promote mental health advocacy, and wellness, as well as changing the many taboos surrounding mental health and wellness. As an integral part of the club, we are dedicated to trying to advocate for a better situation and break the taboo on mental health. Students should never have to hold back when talking about their mental well-being and should never be in an environment where talking about mental health can/will be ridiculed. Our club attempts to break the silence and encourage people to speak out and aspires to be there for them when students are in need of support. More importantly, we want to bridge the gap between the student body and the counseling/administrative body so that students can easily seek help. By regularly updating the counseling office on student conditions and hosting fun activities to ease academic and personal burdens, we want to provide a safer and healthier environment for students.

The Triathlon Club participates in triathlon competitions, exercises together during the weekends, and holds fundraising events such as the Sports Drive to promote the exercising culture in our community. We hope that by enjoying this sport and exercising in a friendly and welcoming environment, students take time away from school and stress and focus on their wellbeing. Ultimately, we aim to create a fun exercise experience for all.

Ultimate Frisbee

The Ultimate Frisbee Club is an interest club that pursues two key goals. The first is to make Ultimate Frisbee a more widely played sport in the school. The 2nd (and the main goal) is to foster a non-competitive atmosphere where students can get physically active without the extreme time commitment of skill barrier that most other sports at TAS require. This promotes physical well-being for students who don't have the time to dedicate themselves to a season sport as the sessions are drop-in, meaning if a student cannot make a session that is okay. The Ultimate Frisbee Club pursues these two goals by hosting a meeting every Friday FLEX period, usually on the lower field (the big one). If enough people show up, then we play a game and if not, then we just throw the frisbee around. Games are usually 7 on 7 though we adjust those rules depending on the number of students present at each meeting.


Like the official UNICEF organization, the UNICEF club advocates for the protection of children's rights and education in order to help them realize and reach their full potential. Through fundraising events like food sales and currently, a collaboration with Doctors without Borders and Medical Frontiers for a medical supplies fundraiser, we hope to target the improvement of the education and health factions of childcare.

United States Institute for Theater Technology (USITT)

The United States Institute for Theater Technology (USITT) aims to host and attend events geared to helping connect the technical theater students with each other and the department. To make live performing arts events succeed, the work of theatrical technicians—lighting, sound, projections, props, scenery, costumes, makeup, and more—is crucial. USITT will allow the Taipei American School community to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the theatrical technicians in the Upper School student body while providing a space for theater technicians to expand upon their technical skillsets. The club provides students with a variety of venues to showcase their technical theater skills, including small-scale collaboration events with other TAS student organizations. For students who are interested in participating in small events as technicians, our club will be an excellent opportunity to get involved. As teamwork and collaboration are critical to successful productions, the club hosts on- and off-campus activities to strengthen teamwork and foster a sense of community among our theater technicians. Club activities include, but are not limited to, recreational team-bonding activities to boost teamwork among the technicians; post-production tech parties to acknowledge, celebrate, and reflect on each other’s work; and outings to local theaters in Taipei to watch theater performances and participate in backstage tours to learn about behind-the-scenes work in professional theater productions.


Vivace, meaning lively, represents our core value: enjoying music. Regardless of levels and types, we wish to recruit as many music-lovers as possible.

Walk for Refugees

Walk for Refugees is TAS's largest student-led fundraiser, aimed towards raising funds and promoting awareness for the plight of refugees around the world.

Writers House

Writers' House is an interest club that aims to inspire, support and promote connections between students and the outside world of writing. Our goal is to expand on existing communities and work with them to further foster the creative writing talent at TAS. We want to connect all school divisions of TAS to activities that will inspire and support them to create pieces of their own, while also promoting awareness of writing opportunities. As our name implies, we want to create a “Writers’ House” that gives access to a casual environment that is frequently available for students who may not have the time in their schedules to take additional creative writing courses, or would like to work on personal projects in their free time.

Young Investor Society

Young Investor Society is TAS's finance club dedicated to teaching investment fundamentals and stock pitching and cultivating student interest in the business world. The club introduces and helps prepare students for competitions hosted by Young Investor Society Organization, such as the Global Stock Pitch Competition or the Young Investor Society Shark Tank Contest. The Shark Tank Contest is a contest derived from a Venture Capitial investing TV show, where various entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to the investors aka "sharks". This contest requires you to analyze the pitches as if you are a shark and justify which businesses you would invest in. This contest not only generates interest in VC investing but cultivates strong pitching and analyzing skills. Next year, the club hopes to work with Young Investor Society Clubs from other IASAS schools in hosting friendly investment competitions. The club will also work to share and update members on important business news through lessons and social media. The club potentially looks forward to teaching economics alongside business investment.


IASAS Cultural Conventions

Students from Taipei American School have consistently participated in the convention, with groups showcasing dance, music, theater, and visual arts. The convention provides a unique opportunity for students to learn and appreciate the diverse cultures of the region while fostering friendly competition and collaboration among students from different schools.

IASAS Film Thumbnail

By Sebastien R., '24
Fall Communications Intern

As a student of film, TAS has given me the opportunity to immerse myself in the world of storytelling and visual artistry. Whether you are interested in writing, directing, producing, or any other aspect of film production, the TAS Film program can help you develop your skills and knowledge. Ever since Grade 9, I have taken a film class every year. I enjoy film because it allows me to experience stories and emotions in a way that is uniquely powerful and immersive. I also love the way that film can be used to explore and examine complex themes and ideas, and to shed light on important issues and perspectives. Whether it's through compelling storytelling, stunning visuals, or thought-provoking ideas, film has the power to inspire, educate, and entertain.

Working on IASAS Film

IASAS Film is one of the opportunities TAS provides its film students to experience the world of film beyond the classroom. IASAS, the Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asia Schools, is an organization of Southeast Asia schools that holds sports, academic, and cultural conventions every year. Prior to the IASAS Film conference, each team creates and submits a short film on a particular theme.

Working together at a roundtable for IASAS Film

This year, the prompt for IASAS Film was the word “Pamana." Pamana is a Filipino word that symbolizes heritage, inheritance, and legacy. As students, we had the option to interpret the prompt however we wanted to. For my group, the planning process was quite rough. After brainstorming, it was really hard to single out an idea. At first, we stuck to an idea but later realized that it didn’t really relate to the prompt and that we had to let go of it, even though most group members wanted to go forward with it. As a result, with the pressure of time on our backs, we had to quickly come up with an alternative version of the original idea that connected more with the prompt.

Our final idea was centered around the concept of finding family beyond one’s bloodline. The original idea contained lots of comedic aspects, and although we couldn’t move forward with that idea, we still wanted to insert comedy into our film. Our film was about a person who sees his second family in a group of students who, just like the protagonist, are rejected by society due to their unique characteristics.We would have to film the entire project at the IASAS tournament and bring this story to life 

IASAS Art and Film

Finally, on November 9, 2022, after many years of not being able to travel to other IASAS schools due to the pandemic, we packed our bags and boarded a flight to Manila, Philippines. IASAS Film 2022 was held at the International School of Manila where passionate film students from all 6 schools in the IASAS conference gathered for a fun, collaborative, and engaging film experience.

Over the course of 3 days, we created another short film in groups with other film students from other schools in under 48 hours and attended workshops varying around topics from freelance filming to the financial aspects of the film industry. Additionally, we viewed an award-winning feature film, Leonor Will Never Die, which was centered around the lively ambiance of Manila and the director’s relationship with cinema. 

IASAS Film Delikado screening

On the last day, we also watched an inspiring documentary called Delikado which was about a group of environmental activists who risk their lives on a daily basis in an effort to stop politicians and businessmen from exploiting their island’s natural resources.The documentary was a story of courage and resilience which hopes to empower others into taking action toward taking on corporations and ones in power that ignorantly and continuously destroy the environment for their own profit. Personally, this documentary left a tremendous impact on me emotionally and it really exemplified the power of film and its ability to influence others in a profound way.

While the IASAS Film competition only lasts for a long weekend, the impact that studying film at TAS has made a huge difference in how I see myself and my education, allowing me to see the world through the lens of a creative storyteller in more ways than one.

Reflections on Loss and Conflict after Premiering "Our ResponsAbility"

In this recurring series, we invite readers to learn more about the incredible people who make TAS the vibrant learning community we know and love.   

The following is an essay by current upper school student Moya B. on her experience performing a significant role in the Asia premier of "Our ResponsAbility," a play that is centered around a collection of first-person accounts from the ongoing war in Ukraine assembled into an original script by Vitalii Havura. Before performing the play, TAS cast members held video calls with cast members in Ukraine for a firsthand glimpse into what living through an invasion is like. In addition, the TAS cast shared the production at TAS and the recent IASAS Cultural Convention held in Malaysia earlier this spring.    

By Moya B. ('25)  

Participating in the play "Our ResponsAbility" was a profound experience for me as a student and actor. During a video call with the original actors, writer, and director, I was immediately struck by their experiences of performing the play amidst the ongoing war.   

What first stood out to me was that an air raid siren went off during the cast's opening night, but the performance continued as it seemed to have become normalized. This astounded me as I realized how desensitized people involved in the war have evolved to the violence and danger around them. There is a cliche that the "show must go on," but seeing that cliche come to life in the middle of a war is an entirely different experience for me as a student and as an actor. They are committed to their craft and clearly committed to their nation, as evidenced by their continued choice to stay in Ukraine.  

Despite being desensitized, it was clear that those involved in the war were still devastated by the atrocities and losses they had experienced. This made me reflect on how sheltered and privileged my own life was, as I had never had to live under the constant stress of potential obliteration. It also made me think about how important it is to take action in any way possible to help those affected by the war.    

By participating in this play, the incredible cast and everybody involved has raised more awareness of the reality of the war and not just what you see on social media. For example, when traveling to IASAS cultural convention in Malaysia and performing the piece there, it became apparent what impact it has on people.   

Our audience consisted of so many people from different backgrounds — for example, there was a girl with family currently in Ukraine, a Russian boy, and people who'd never given the war much thought. Yet everybody there felt touched and emotional. Undeniably they felt a sense of responsibility. And in this disconnected modern world, that is how we helped.   


This play has the power to reveal the truth behind the war and the suffering and cruelty endured by innocent people caught in the conflict. It serves as a call to action, urging us to stand with those fighting for their independence and not tolerate war anywhere in the world. The experience has made me even more committed to using my voice and resources to help those affected by war and to make a positive impact in any way I can.  

EPILOGUE: "Our ResponsAbility" was directed by Upper School Theater Teacher, Austin Farwell. It was performed by the cast in the TAS Black Box Theater on February 24 & 25 and at ISKL in Malaysia during IASAS Cultural Convention on March 1-5, 2023. Cast and Tech Crew included: Moya B., Ivan W., Emily W., Jolie C., Taarini S., Miya K., Choe H., Sage R., Nathan S., Amalia B., Cailey J., Sora I., Zachary K., Theo F.
