Today, at 11am on the 11th day of November, 2020, Regent’s International School Bangkok remembers and commemorates Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day. Each year, we gather to remember our brave fallen soldiers who died in all wars. The event commenced with an inspiring message from Mr Christopher Perkin, a representative from the British Embassy, followed by tributes from our Year 11 and 13 students ; Plub, Khatchatur, and Bless.

Khatchatur, Year 13, paid tribute to our fallen alumnus, Henry Arutyunov, Regent’s Class of 2018. He will forever be remembered for his courage and bravery. Bless, Year 11, gave a beautiful rendition of the song “The Last Post”.

After the ceremony, students gathered in the secondary building for The Poppy Appeal, where they donated and pinned paper poppies on the board. All the money collected will go towards the Royal British Legion which looks after the families of those who have given their lives and those who have suffered injuries in combat.

Here at Regent’s, we believe that we have a very crucial role in educating our students about the sacrifice these soldiers made and why it is important we remember this. By educating them about this part of history, they can develop a deeper understanding of world events with the hope of maintaining a peaceful future. A massive thanks to Mr Christopher Perkin and Mr Charlie Hanson – it was great pleasure to have two representatives from the British Embassy attend the ceremony today.

We honour our fallen soldiers, our heroes. The brave souls who gave their today for our tomorrow.
