Online Debate 2016/17 (Week 4)

For the inter-school debate last week students were discussing education and the pros and cons of single sex education. Some students were worried about lack of socialisation whereas others felt single sex education might provide a more focused environment with fewer distractions.

University Visits

We were very pleased to welcome a representative from the University of British Columbia to talk to our Y12 and Y13 students about their courses and campus life in Vancouver and Okanagan. Regent’s enjoys a great relationship with UBC and we are encouraging our current students to find out more from the four 2016 leavers who secured places there.
Upcoming visits include City University, HK, Carleton University, Canada and University College Dublin, Ireland and don’t miss the talk about how to secure a place to study Medicine at Thammasat University on November 1st at 3pm. Please encourage your son/daughter to show you the information on the Google Classroom about all the university fairs and events that are taking place at school and in Bangkok.

Message from the Deputy Head of Secondary

Like all of you, our school wants all of its students to be happy at school. If our students are not happy, we can’t get the best out of them.

However, please consider also that happiness is not just contained in the here-and-now. Happiness is something that we must all try to build for the future. I’m sure that if we all said to our students, we’re banning homework and uniforms and all of the other areas that sometimes don’t make them happy, they would feel very happy. But that happiness would not last.

The secondary school has started at a great pace this year. We are all excited about the road ahead. The partnership between the school, parents and students is key to the success of our community.

We must work together to ensure that our students work hard, get involved and come to school on time. We must encourage our students to realise that working hard, getting involved and coming to school on time will actually develop their feelings of happiness. In the future, they will thank you and me for looking after them – and turning their dreams into reality.

IGCSE Updates – Physics Class

Year 11 have been working hard in Physics this week, adding their creative ideas to their Physics knowledge. Miss Howe explains;

We have been studying methods of heat energy transfer in Year 11 IGCSE Physics. They are making model houses that contain various methods of insulation. They will then present their houses to the rest of the group, explaining how their methods of insulation reduce heat energy loss.

All students were enjoying themselves and reaffirming their knowledge and understanding.

Secondary New Students Party 2016

Last week saw the first of the New Students Party, which some have described as being the party of the year. The party was arranged for students who were new to Regents International after their first 3 weeks and was held in the new study room. It was a chance to meet up and see how everyone was settling in and a time to relax and enjoy themselves. There was some delicious food put out which vanished in seconds and some live music from teachers and pupils. A special mention to Prair who sang two songs in fantastic style.

Reading Buddy Scheme at Secondary

The Regent’s International School, Bangkok is famous for its friendly, inclusive atmosphere where all of the students are willing to help each other out. Especially when learning English! This month, our Year 12 students are spearheading the Buddy Reading Scheme to assist some of their younger counterparts with literacy skills. What better way to meet new friends than over a good book?

In a comfortable, relaxed setting, students can foster a love of reading together whilst helping to further their knowledge of both the teaching and learning process. Whether their assistance is through translation, explaining difficult words, or by asking comprehension questions; our Y12s are dedicated to helping their buddies become more confident with reading.

Our new IB cohort definitely have to be commended for giving up their time to such a worthwhile cause.

Eco-Fashion Show 2016

As an initiative to educate our students about the ‘E’  (Environmental stewardship) from the Round Square IDEALS the secondary school committee organised an eco-friendly fashion show.

The students had to design their outfits from waste materials and earn points for their house.

It was great to see the students get creative with their outfits.

Congratulations to the Blue House for achieving the maximum score. Red was 2nd, Green 3rd and Yellow 4th.

The TISAC Basketball Season (September 2016)

The TISAC Basketball season is beginning to ‘Tip Off’ this term and Regent’s U13, U15 and Senior boys and girls teams have been training hard both in lessons and after school in preparation for their matches. With new coaches on board and plenty of opportunities for new and existing players to join the teams, Regent’s Basketball is hoping for a very successful season ahead.


The PE department is also very excited to announce that for the first year ever we will also be entering an U11 boys and girls team into the TISAC Basketball competitions and Mr Jackson, the new Primary PE teacher has been busy preparing his young and extremely enthusiastic players for their forthcoming matches.

Best of luck to all the teams this year!
