Year 10 Outdoor Education Trip

53 of our finest year 10 students set off for the time of their lives! We traveled up to the Petcharat Scout Camp early on Monday morning full of excitement and anticipation. As soon as we arrived, we were divided into groups, shown our rooms and then set off to our activities. The students were given the opportunity to take part in a Cave Exploration, a Mountain Bike Safari and a Jungle Trek – with the chance to swim at the pool of a beautiful waterfall. The Students were also challenged with our 6 stage adventure race!
I though it was fantastic to see so many of our students enjoying and pushing themselves in activities that they may have never had the chance to take part in before; and to see the the spirit and teamwork that came from this was excellent!

Year 7 Geography trip to Thai Meteorological Department

On May 23rd all Year 7 students went to Bang Na for half a day trip to see how weather data is collected and how it can be used to forecast the weather.
They got to see a Stevenson Screen, rain gauges, anemometers, evaporation pan and a Campbell-Stokes sunshine recorder.
After being told how these instruments worked they went inside for a short lecture about forecasting the weather and the different types of weather Thailand experiences. The students diligently took notes and answered a variety of questions.
Finally everyone went into the Meteorological Discovery Museum for a short history of meteorology.
It was a very informative morning for all the students.

FOBISIA Conference in Kathmandu Nepal

Regents International School, Bangkok was represented by 17 students at the annual FOBISIA International Environmental Conference in Kathmandu Nepal last week. The focus of the conference was for students to learn about how the people of Nepal are endeavouring to protect their fragile environment, during a time of increased urbanisation. Nepal’s natural beauty is internationally renowned boasting no less than 10 UNESCO World heritage sites.

Students learnt how Good Earth Nepal (http://www.goodearthnepal.org/), a charitable organisation are teaching local Nepalis how to rebuild their homes after the earthquake of 2015, in an eco-friendly and sustainable way. Students then took this new found knowledge and used it to construct a set of park benches that will be used by the Nepali people and hikers on the Kathmandu Ridge. Following on from this, students were taught how to make low energy lighting and air-conditioning systems from recycled materials and test them out in a real life setting.

Dr Prakash Bhave from ICIMOD (http://www.icimod.org) then delivered a very interesting lecture on air pollution and showed how serious the problem is to human health and the wider impact it has on the environment. Students were then given a guided tour of the ICIMOD facilities and shown how technology and modern agricultural practices are being used to boost the economic prospects of the people of the Himalayas.

Although this was a fantastic learning opportunity it was also a great occasion for our students to socialise with over 70 delegates from around the world, making new friends and learning about different cultures.

 

Primary Residential and Field Trips

For our Primary students last week was a time to connect with friends, explore, and learn. While the Year 4-Year 6 students were out of town for residential trips, the other primary years enjoyed their own little field trips in Bangkok. Here are some highlights from each year group.

Year 13 Biology students visit Siriraj Medical Museum

On Monday 16th January our final year IB Biology students visited the Siriraj Medical Museum. Here they got the opportunity to experience some of the ideas and concepts from their Human Physiology lessons in a visual, interactive, and often graphic, format.

On show were fetuses at different stages of development, and with a number of birth defects, as well as adult bodies cut to show the different organs and tissues inside! These were quite a shock for our students to see, but a very worthwhile experience.
