ENGLISH STARS OF THE MONTH

The English Department would like to congratulate the following students for being January 2016’s ‘English Stars of the Month’ for exemplary behaviour and effort.
Star of the week
Jeong Woo – Year 11
Jeong Woo has worked extremely hard to improve his English over the last year; he has made so much progress that he has been moved up two sets. He is the perfect example that ‘hard work really does pay off’!

deep
Deep – Year 13
Deep’s grades have improved steadily during his time in the IB Language and Literature course. He takes on board feedback given by the teacher, reads the texts carefully and is mindful to structure his essay responses effectively. Well done Deep!

 

Maymay
MayMay – Year 8
MayMay worked extremely hard during term One; so hard, in fact, that she has been moved into Set 1. She takes great care with homework and always listens carefully in class, most of all, she makes great efforts to read at home which is why she has won the award this month!

English Stars of the Month

To reward those who show determination in English, we have created a ‘Stars of English’ newsboard to give recognition to students who are working above and beyond their teachers’ expectations.

See our ‘stars’ this month!

Kam - Y10 - English StarKam – Year 10

Kam’s short story this month was fantastic and she put a great deal of effort into writing and redrafting it. Kam is always polite and hardworking, and as a result all of her work is of a similar high standard.

Mint – Year 13

Mint - Y13 English StarThis month, Mint has redrafted her written task, completed two practice questions and volunteered to re-write an essay to improve it. This is representative of the huge effort she has put in since joining Regent’s and Mint has made fantastic progress as a result.
Dr Sweeting

Well done to all of you – keep up the good work!

English Learning Environment Awards 20/11/15

Congratulations to the students who have earned the English Learning Environment (ELE) Award this week!

This award is awarded to the students who demonstrate that they only use English to communicate both in and outside of the classroom thus allowing children (especially those who are not native-English speakers) to become effective English communicators.

TEDX at Regent’s Interntational

The Speech Competition is an annual event here at The Regent’s International School, Bangkok. Our English Department understands how difficult and nerve wracking it can be standing in front of an audience and presenting your ideas; which is exactly why we want students to face this challenge!

This year the competition took on a different theme; the style of a ‘TEDX’ conference. TED stands for technology, entertainment and design and was created with the intention to bring communities together who had a thirst for knowledge and wanted to deepen their understanding of the world. TED is all about spreading good ideas; that is exactly what we wanted our students to do in their presentations this year. The categories were as follows:
Year 7 – Why you Should think Positively
Year 8 – Confidence Conquers All.
Year 9 – Why Charity is Necessary.
Year 10 – Life without Compassion, isn’t Living.
Year 11 – My Philosophy for a Happy Life

Every student gave 100% effort to their speech – offering personal ideas and objective advice for members of the audience. The winners from each class performed at the ‘conference’ and an overall winner was chosen by both the students and teachers. Congratulations to the following winners who performed confidently, fluently and passionately:
Year 7 – Jija
Year 8 – Shree
Year 9 – Sarah
Year 10 – Sahasi
Year 11 – Jung Seok

Well done to all students for participating, entertaining and inspiring your fellow students!
