Wordsmith club was formed to make reading and writing a central part of the WAMY tradition. The club publishes a newsletter with a school life section at regular intervals and aims to improve literacy skills. It organises Vocabulary quizzes, competitions on creative writing and reading meetings. It also encourages reading mentorship where older students help and encourage younger ones to read and rewards people who borrow regularly from the library. Members are in charge of organising library day and book fairs.
The Math Club seeks to incite in students an interest and liking for mathematics that eventually reflects in their academic performance. The club encourages students to use mathematical techniques to solve practical problems.
Members acquire new mathematical knowledge by the end of each meeting, thereby increasing the efficiency of every member in solving mathematical problems. Major activities of the club include Pie Day (a day to celebrate great mathematicians and their theorems) and a Treasure Hunt involving mathematical concepts as clues.
These clubs are student-driven and a great deal depends on the energy or enthusiasm of different year groups. Students are encouraged to use their initiative to suggest new clubs to either the SMT or Clubs Patron
