The Regent’s senior boys basketball team claimed the TISAC league championships today as they overcame tough opposition in the shape of St Stephen’s. Regent’s applied good pressure early on in the game and maintained a 10 point lead for most of the first and second quarter. However with the team feeling the effects of 2 games in 3 days, St Stephen’s began to rally back and by the end of the third quarter the score was tied at 38 a piece. After some carefully selected words to the team by their coach, the boys took to the court determined not to let the game slip through their fingers. The determination and resilience that have been shown all season by this group of players shone through and they eventually won 63-49, and therefore claiming the league without losing a single game. Huge congratulations to the team.
The Senior boys faced rivals Bromsgrove after losing to them in the TISAC tournament last half term. Preparing for a competitive game, the boys took to court focussed and determined.
They dominated the game early, matching Bromsgrove play for play and taking advantage of their mistakes. They showed class in their play with amazing team work down the court and throughout the team changes.
The game ended as it starts with Regent’s displaying superior play from defence to attack. A fantastic game to watch and a well deserved win. Final score 67-47. Well done Regent’s team!
We were pleased to welcome representatives from universities in the UK and Ireland, along with Regent’s International College, to our British Universities fair. Students in years 11-13 had the chance to talk to representatives about admissions, life as a student and different degree courses available. We have recently had visits from Imperial College, London, The University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce, The University of St Louis and The University of Alabama in Birmingham. This month we are welcoming representatives from Hawai’i Pacific University, San Jose State University and the University of San Francisco. Year 11 students should make sure they join our Google Classroom page so that they receive all updates about visits.
The Year 11 GCSE PE students demonstrated team work and problem solving to break down the process of analysing performance, an important component of their coursework. The group had to put the process in the correct order and discuss their decision. They then took photos of the process they decided on for future reference. They really enjoyed getting out of the classroom and being challenged to test their thinking skills.
As part of their first term ‘skills’ unit, Year 10 students were asked to produce pencil sketches to help develop their drawing skills and encourage them to recognise where tone is needed.
These drawing exercises allow the students to use pencils in a more sophisticated manner to help create form through light and shade.
We were very pleased to welcome a representative from the University of British Columbia to talk to our Y12 and Y13 students about their courses and campus life in Vancouver and Okanagan. Regent’s enjoys a great relationship with UBC and we are encouraging our current students to find out more from the four 2016 leavers who secured places there.
Upcoming visits include City University, HK, Carleton University, Canada and University College Dublin, Ireland and don’t miss the talk about how to secure a place to study Medicine at Thammasat University on November 1st at 3pm. Please encourage your son/daughter to show you the information on the Google Classroom about all the university fairs and events that are taking place at school and in Bangkok.
Year 11 have been working hard in Physics this week, adding their creative ideas to their Physics knowledge. Miss Howe explains;
We have been studying methods of heat energy transfer in Year 11 IGCSE Physics. They are making model houses that contain various methods of insulation. They will then present their houses to the rest of the group, explaining how their methods of insulation reduce heat energy loss.
All students were enjoying themselves and reaffirming their knowledge and understanding.
