Regent’s UK Experience Programme 2017 (Pt 2)

Our UK Experience students are having a lot of fun! During the weekend they visited Cambridge and enjoyed an educational trip to Science and History Museums. The springtime British weather was typically unpredictable with pouring rain all day and then hailstorms. However this could not stop the children from having a good time. When the weather cleared up they toured Abbey Gardens, shopped at Bury St. Edmunds and even enjoyed some Thai food.

Regent’s UK Experience Programme 2017 (Pt 1)

It is the first week of the 2017 Regent’s UK Experience Programme and it’s a delight to see how the students have settled down and adapted to the new school and new people.
Within the safe and supervised environment of Barnardiston Hall UK our students have made good friends, settled down in their dormitories and toured around the campus. To make the students more comfortable each one of them have been assigned a ‘buddy’ who is a student at Barnardiston. This is an excellent way for our students to get to know the school so it feels more like a home away from home. Over  the coming weekend students will be having their first trip around the area; they will be visiting Cambridge and Colchester zoo.

Regent’s hosted 2 booths at the Smile-Carnival

Regent’s Smile-Club have been working tirelessly throughout this academic year assisting in organizing the Smile-Carnival hosted by Operation Smile that took place on April 1st at National Stadium. The Smile-Carnival was a student led charity event where all proceeds went to providing children with surgeries for facial deformities in particular cleft lips and palates surgery. The Regents Smile-Club hosted two booths, the Haunted Maze and the Henna Booth which were the most popular destinations of the night! The students raised 30,000 baht through fundraisers in school to pay for the expenses of the booth.

Last year, the student led charity event raised over 3 million baht and this year the students aim to reach their new personal best.

IB School Supported Self-Taught class 2017

The end of this academic year at Regent’s is going to be unique: our first ever IB School Supported Self-Taught class are beginning to prepare for their final examinations. This is a very special subject that requires a tremendous amount of skill and dedication from the students who undertake it.

SSST students are guided by a teacher in school using the English language, however, the students have to study literary texts and write assessments in their own language. The IB offer this subject to students in over 80 different mother tongue languages.

If you would like to study your language as well as English, or even make your mother tongue language a priority at IB, then this class is for you!

Our Japanese students, Shin and Renaka in Y13, are so happy to be studying in their mother tongue language. Here they are smiling after making such a success of their Oral Assessment.

Have a look at the Regent’s IB Subject Guide for more information.

Chinese Speaking Competition

In March, Secondary had a Chinese speaking competition for Chinese students as well as for students who do not speak Chinese as their first language. The competition was split into Junior and Senior groups, where the Junior division spoke on the topic “My Birthday Wish”, while the Senior division spoke about “How to protect the environment”. The students who participated in this competition displayed outstanding fluency in the language and commendable bravery for standing up to an audience while speaking a language that they are not used to.

Junior Dublin Literary Award, Thailand

As usual, when this year’s Dublin Literary Award came around, our students jumped at the chance to enter. We have always had keen ‘masters of the pen’ in this school; this academic year was no different. If you are a Thai citizen or hold a Thai passport, then you were free to enter the competition and potentially win a trip to Ireland.

The theme this year was ‘a journey’ and students were allowed to write in a style of their choice as long as it was in keeping with this theme. We had several entrants this year, although we were pleased to learn after the deadline that our Y11 student Mona had reached the shortlist and was invited to the Rembrandt Hotel to celebrate.

We are very proud of the efforts and achievements of all of our students in this competition and look forward to continued success.

– Miss Heather Neill, Head of English
