FOBISIA Golf Tournament 2018

The annual FOBISIA Golf Championships was held at the prestigious Black Mountain Golf Course last week. All of the student’s performed magnificently as they battled hard to show all the schools in Asia that Regent’s, Bangkok has some of the best young golfers in this part of the world.
The course has recently been rated the 59th best Golf course in the world and was therefore a fantastic setting for such an occasion. Regent’s, Bangkok took 7 players to the Championships with students from Year 6 to Year 12. The tournament was a two day event, culminating in an awards ceremony for both individual and team prizes. With some extremely experienced golfers present at the Championships, it made for an exciting and tough competition.
The awards are as follows: Jenny (Year 12) 1st place overall U19 girls / 1st place overall girls gross; Mac (Year 7) 3rd place overall boys gross / 2nd overall U11 boys / Nearest the pin x 2; Stephen (Year 6) 4th place overall U11 Boys / longest drive / Nearest the pin; Mac/Stephen (Year 7 and Year  6) – 3rd place Team U11 boys and Mic (Year 8) 3rd place overall U13 boys

British Science Week: STEM Challenge Day 2018

Regent’s have just hosted an inter-school Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Challenge. Teams of Year 10 students from 10 international  schools took part and were challenged-to find solutions to the global problem of plastic waste. The quantity and quality of work produced by all students throughout the day was excellent. Teams did STEM, their schools and themselves proud and everyone showed tremendous imagination and ingenuity. We hope to see all schools back with us for next year’s challenge.

British Science Week: F1 Model Car DemonStration

We were very fortunate on 13th March to have Formula One in Schools bring their racing demonstration into Regent’s. Inspired by what we saw and did we plan to build a team to participate in the F1 STEM Challenge. On the day of the visit all students (and some staff) had great fun racing the F1 Gas Powered Cars on the purpose built track. We are also lucky to have one of the F1 team as a judge on our first Regents Inter-School STEM challenge day.

TISAC Under 15 Girls Football

On Saturday Regent’s hosted the U15 Girls TISAC Football Tournament.

We started our group games against a strong St Andrew’s team who underestimated our ability as we scored the first goal. They responded quickly with the equaliser, ending the first half 1-1. With quick thinking from Benz and Grace in midfield, we took the lead again in the second half but struggled to dampen their strong strikers and the game ended 2-3. Next, we faced Charter; we attacked early and were rewarded with the first goal although the game was a 1-1 draw.

We met an undefeated Bangkok Prep team in the semi finals. We conceded one goal in the first half but took to the pitch in the second half with a new energy and focus. Unfortunately were unable to convert this into a goal so we went into the 3rd/4th place play off against Ascot. We scored the first goal and dominated this game – conceding a goal late on, taking us to extra time. The girls gave it everything they had however a small defensive mistake was all Ascot needed to win a free kick and score from it. We proudly took 4th place and everyone enjoyed a lovely day of football.

Player of the tournament for Regent’s was Benz for her excellent determination and growing confidence.

Well done to all the girls!

TISAC Senior Boys Football Tournament

The Regent’s Senior Boys Football Team performed brilliantly to finish in 3rd place in the TISAC Senior Boys Football Tournament at Ascot on Saturday. The Hosts won the Tournament beating St Andrews 71 in closely fought final. Regent’s gained 3rd place by convincingly beating Bangkok Prep 6-0 in the 3rd and 4th place playoff. Earlier in the Tournament Regent’s qualified from the group stages by beating BCIS 3-1 and drawing with Bromsgrove 1-1. The boys did extremely well and although they lost their semi-final against STA 2-0, they more than made up for their loss and disappointment by dominating Bangkok Prep in the 3rd and 4th place playoff, scoring some lovely individual and team goals in scintillating performance.

With the Senior Girls finishing runners up in their tournament. Regent’s can confidently claim to currently be the second best school in TISAC Senior Football.
