Boarding trip to Kanchanaburi

This half term a whooping 34 boarders joined staff on a trip to Kanchanaburi. Despite a few very heavy down pours we had quite an adventure, involving both fun and educational activities, whilst appreciating the history of the region.

Mr Goodenough, head of sports, coordinated a game of bubble football, which all got involved in. This sport of bouncing around in inflatable giant balls led us all to be pretty muddy, with laughs all round.

We visited the Erawan falls, where boarders clambered up the levels of the falls and some brave souls took a dip in the fresh water. A trip to the death railway, museum and POW cemetery in town, helped boarders appreciate the tragic history of the area, and the stories of survival from the second world war era.

We rounded up the trip but jetting along the river to a lovely spa, where the boarders relaxed their weary muscles in the thermal waters, whilst some others took their chances at the fish spa, where little fish cleaned their toes!!

The trip was my first as head of girls boarding and gave me a great change to get to know some of the students better, whilst seeing them away from school from this time. I look forward to the next.

Boarding Updates – June 2017

From the Head of Boys’ Boarding (Mr.Gavin Terry):

The final few weeks of the academic year in boarding have been as action packed as the first few weeks were all the way back in August. We had a large number of our boarders involved in the school production of The Jungle Book, which was a fantastic success. jungle-bookOur boarders have also been busy on different activities for Round Square Week, including a trip to Laos and the Year 10 Outdoor Education trip. Our boarders also took on our school staff in a ‘friendly’ game of rounders, with lots of students and staff getting involved in the fun. The staff eventually came out on top, but we hope a rematch can be arranged early in the start of next term.
All the staff in boarding would like to thank our students for their contributions and participation over the last year. We wish them a happy and relaxing holiday, and we look forward to welcoming them back in August for the start of another action packed year.

From the Head of Girls’ Boarding (Ms.Anna Croucher):

Its been a busy and eventful end of term 3. In addition to many wrapping up their exams there has also been a range of fun activities and events at the school that has see the academic year out brilliantly.

There was an amazing production of Jungle book with a 100 plus strong cast and active participation of boarders of all ages.

 

Last week during Round Square week, there was a range of activities that embraced the Round square principles  through skill exchange, work project, community service and adventure. This included a wide variety of activities including helping locally based organisation and travelling abroad to Laos.

There was a nail biting in-house rounders game between staff and boarders, with the staff scraping a win on points, however the boarders showing immense determination along with great batting and fielding skills; they gave some tough competition, who knows what the score will be next time!

Last weekend a team of boarders attended the Neon colour night run. A 5km race that involved getting messy whilst keeping fit.image1

Its also been my first 3 weeks in post as head of girls boarding and I can honestly say what a pleasure it has been. The girls and team are amazing and everyone has made me feel so welcome. I have taken part in activities that i haven’t  done for years and have really enjoyed getting to know all the girls.

We all look forward to the next school year and what it holds after the well deserved break for the boarders.

Boarding Updates – May 2017

A big event for many of our Senior boarders this past month was the Leavers’ Prom. This was the final farewell for our Y13’s, and a number of our Y12’s and Y11’s also joined the celebration. It was a lovely event ending their time with us at Regent’s with a fun-filled evening of entertainment…and many many photos. It is so sad for staff to say goodbye to our Y13’s after looking after them for so long, but we wish all the happiness and success possible for their future.

As an additional farewell some of the Senior Boys and staff went for an evening watching a Thai Premier League football match and a pizza. Fortunately we were lucky enough to witness lots of goals in a thrilling match that finished 5-3!

It is also time for the Boarding House to say farewell to Ms Tamsin Crozier, the Head of Girls’ Boarding. Everyone would like to thank her for her hard work and commitment to the House, and wish her well in the future. Moving into the role we welcome Miss Anna Croucher, who is really eager and excited to be taking on the responsibilities associated with Boarding, and joining us with lots of new ideas to make the boarding experience even better for our students. Here is a welcome message from Miss Croucher

Boarding Updates April 2017

For many it has been an exciting return to Term 3, particularly with the welcome addition of eleven new boys to the House. Making new friends, and an intense flurry of both football and badminton sessions, have been the early focus since our return. It has been great to see so many participating and keeping active.

For some it has also been a nerve-wracking time as they enter their exam period. We continue to wish our Year 11 and 13’s well and are extremely proud of their hard work and effort.

Activities have been focused around shopping malls, as we make sure everyone has all the equipment they need for a long and busy term; and service, as we continue to invite local children onto campus. We also ran a “mini team-marathon”, inviting students to form international, mixed gender teams to tackle a 12km course and see who comes out victorious!

The highlight this month was however our huge water fight in honour of Songkran. Everyone enjoyed soaking each other on the field and wishing each other good luck for the new year.

Boarding Updates – March 2017

On top of the regular trips, and our Sunday Service activity with local children, the last part of this half term has been extremely busy for our students. Some were involved with helping to organise the Smile Carnival event at The National Stadium – a fantastic event to raise money for a very worthy cause.

Some of our Senior Boys organised a meal out for the IB cohort and staff as a farewell meal for our Year 13’s. We went out to a Brazilian restaurant for an all you can eat buffet that left everyone happy and with very full stomachs!

Boarding Updates Feb 2017

With many of our international students unable to return home for a short weeks holiday we took the 23 remaining students for 5 days in Hua Hin. Here students were able to enjoy the sun, sea and sand, with a lovely beach just at the end of the road.

We spent one day at an animal rescue sanctuary learning about the stories behind all the rescued animals, and providing a service to the charity by helping to feed the animals and clean out their enclosures.

We spent another day at the amazing Vana Nava water park, an evening at the colourful Hua Hin night market, and had day trips to the Monkey Temple and another stretch of natural beach front. On our last morning some of our students took the opportunity to enjoy a daring banana boat ride before we headed back to Bangkok.

A massive thank you to the students for representing the school so well, and to the boarding staff that helped run the trip. A fun and enjoyable time was had by all.

Boarding Updates (January 2017)

This month the girls’ highlights have included baking with Ms Edwards and an outing to the night market as well as the ever popular Friday night mall trip. Everyone is looking forward to learning Muay Thai and preparations are underway for Valentine’s event.

A big highlight for the boys’ house was the U15 football tournament that we organised, in collaboration with Chelsea Soccer School, and participated in. We invited seven other schools along to compete. A great (and very hot and tiring!) day was had by all. For many of our boarders this was their first opportunity to play in a competitive match, playing much more experienced teams. It was also an opportunity for some of our senior boys to take a management role, organising and leading the team. The boys showed fantastic grit and determination, and positive attitude despite results not going their way. They made a lot of progress throughout the day, ending the day with a thrilling 4-4 game against British Columbia International School, where Non (our keeper) saved a penalty!

Christmas and New Year wishes from Boarding

With a long and busy term coming to an end, and with the holiday season in sight, our Boarding Prefects took the time to organise a Christmas Party for everyone in Boarding. Speaking nicely to our caterers they were lucky to be able to arrange a slightly more traditional Christmas meal, which was followed by some games and even more party food! There was even a visit from Santa, who took time out of his busy December schedule to deliver ‘Secret Santa’ presents to everyone. A fantastic, fun and festive time was had by all. A special thanks to all the prefects for organising the event.


Wishing all students and their families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you have a lovely holiday and come back refreshed and motivated in January.

From the Head of Girls’ boarding:

The Girls’ Boarding House staff would like to extend our best wishes to all of our parents for the holiday season. The girls have been kind, caring and enthusiastic all term and deserve a well-earned rest. We are looking forward to welcoming them back in January. The boarding house will open again on Saturday January 7th and we would like to remind all parents or guardians to let us know when their daughters will be returning. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
