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.

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.

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!
Regent’s took part in a TISAC Under 13 and Under 15 swimming Gala at St. Andrew’s 107 on Tuesday 6th March. We assembled a strong team who competed across a variety of strokes and distances. There were many praiseworthy results: Sun won the 100m Breastroke, Fay won the 50m Breaststroke, Yurika won the 100m freestyle, Sun won the 50m Freestyle and May won our second 100m Breastroke award. Also Regent’s secured second place in all four of the relay events that we entered.
Well done to everyone who competed; we look forward to the Secondary Swimming Gala to be held in school early May!
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.
