TISAC Athletics Success!

On Monday 20th, we took a team of 30 plus students to represent Regent’s at the TISAC Athletics competition. Full of anticipation and excitement after a very successful and enjoyable Sports Day, the students were focused and motivated for a good day of Athletics.

The day started strong, with Zak and Layla bringing home gold for the 800m event, showing outstanding pace throughout. The rest of the team followed suit, racking up an impressive medal haul including gold for Ashaank who stepped in last minute to throw the Javelin for the Senior boys team and the U13 boys relay team coming in first place.

The amazing team effort paid off, with U13’s and U15’s teams placing second and the Senior’s placing third. Not bad for a Senior team limited to 8 individuals in total! Overall, Regent’s came away with 30 medals, including 11 gold, 9 silver and 10 bronze.

An amazing performance, and what a fantastic day. Making their teachers and their school extremely proud!

Volcano models by Year 9 students

Recently Year 9 students have been studying about natural hazards. They have completed their work on earthquakes and tsunamis and this week have started to look at volcanoes. Many students made some excellent volcano models which we were able to take outside and ‘erupt’. We even had an edible volcano.
Soon students will be going on a virtual tour of volcanoes around the world before recreating the management of a volcanic eruption on a Caribbean island.

Work experience programme at Lad Prao Hospital

On Friday 10th November, 6 of our Year 13 students have started a 6 week work experience programme at Lad Prao Hospital. This is a hospital we have a close connection with and we are grateful to them for giving us this wonderful opportunity. The 6 students are all interested in pursuing a medical related career once they graduate from Regent’s, and experiences like this are essential for their University applications. They will work each Saturday for the rest of the term, getting involved with a range of departments across the hospital. They will gain a great insight into how hospitals run and just what it is like to work in the medical profession. We wish them well and know they will represent us proudly.

Regent’s Senior Boys are TISAC Basketball League Champions

The Regent’s senior boys basketball team claimed the TISAC league championships today as they overcame tough opposition in the shape of St Stephen’s. Regent’s applied good pressure early on in the game and maintained a 10 point lead for most of the first and second quarter. However with the team feeling the effects of 2 games in 3 days, St Stephen’s began to rally back and by the end of the third quarter the score was tied at 38 a piece. After some carefully selected words to the team by their coach, the boys took to the court determined not to let the game slip through their fingers. The determination and resilience that have been shown all season by this group of players shone through and they eventually won 63-49, and therefore claiming the league without losing a single game. Huge congratulations to the team.

TISAC Swimming Gala 2017

Senior swimmers had a very successful day of competition at the recent TISAC Swimming Gala at St Andrews 107. The students really enjoyed the atmosphere and swam exceptionally well across all of the events. Regent’s came away with 30 medals which ensured a 2nd place finish overall.

A fantastic effort – Well done Regent’s Senior swimmers!

Regent’s student claims 2nd place at International Skating competition.

Huge congratulations to Eve for winning the 2nd place at the International Figure Skating competition.

Our Year 9 student, Eve (Nitchisa Ritprakongchao) has been competing in 2017/ 2018 Asian Junior Figure Skating Challenge (AJFSC) which is an international figure skating competition series jointly hosted by the Chinese Skating Association (CHN), Hong Kong Skating Union (HKG) and Figure and Speed Skating Association of Thailand (THA) under the authorization of the Asian Skating Union during October 9 – 11 2017 in Hong Kong at Festival Walk Glacier.

In Eve’s opinion, Ice skating is a wonderful sport. In fact, she believes that many of us have experienced ice skating before and one of the most undeniable fears is the fear of falling. In every lesson she falls over and over to get the moves right. This teaches her to never give up, no matter how hard she falls, she just has to get up and continue.

One of the most challenging things for a figure skater are the competitions. A figure skater has to practice for months and months before the competition but anything can go wrong at the last minute because of the stress from the surroundings such as the audience and the judges.Therefore, mental stability is highly important in order to keep her focused during the competition.

In conclusion, she truly believes ice skating is a beautiful sport but it is not as easy as it looks. She has learned many valuable lessons from it in order to improve herself in the future.

Basketball match: Regent’s vs Bromsgrove 7-11-17

The Senior boys faced rivals Bromsgrove after losing to them in the TISAC tournament last half term. Preparing for a competitive game, the boys took to court focussed and determined.

They dominated the game early, matching Bromsgrove play for play and taking advantage of their mistakes. They showed class in their play with amazing team work down the court and throughout the team changes.

The game ended as it starts with Regent’s displaying superior play from defence to attack. A fantastic game to watch and a well deserved win. Final score 67-47. Well done Regent’s team!

A Cultural perspective- Year 12 Artworks

Last term, the Year 12 art students answered these questions within class “what is culture?”, “can a culture own an image?”,  “how can we learn from the culture of others to inform our art practise in a respectful way”, “how can culture be used as a theme or inspiration for contemporary art?” and produced artwork in response. Subjects that the students looked at were racism in education, corruption within governments, colonialism, Buddhism- heaven or hell?, Prostitution, work ethics and our relationships towards social media. They were all very successful and as you can see have produced very intelligent responses to a highly sophisticated starting point.

 

 

 

 

Volleyball tournament

On Monday 6th November, the Senior volleyball team was on their way home from their first Volleyball competition. Playing teams from SISB, KPIS and KIS, our newbie team were excited to try out their skills. We faced KIS first and outplayed them with consistency and a fantastic team work. Winning 2 games 21-13 and 21-14. The hosts SISB were next, with a well practised team they exposed our weakness and we lost both games ending the first 13-21 and pulled it back in the second narrowly losing 19-21. Our third game against KPIS was a tightly fought match, taking it to a third game which we won convincingly. The team is now very excited to take part in more fixtures.

Well done to all, you’ve made your coaches very proud!
