Regent’s participates in U13 FOBISIA Games

U13 FOBISIA Games

The competition will be etched into the memory of its participants! 15 keen and enthusiastic students from the Regent’s International School, Bangkok contested across 4 days of intense sports based activity. Their wits and nerve was tested against 180 students from other parts of the Asian continent, in Athletics, Swimming, Football and Basketball. Despite huge rivalry, a major draw to the games was to make new friends. Success can be measured in many ways; by comparing improvement or by the visual collection of silverware at the end of such a tournament.

I am happy to report that our group of 15 young athletes managed to do both. The attitude and integrity of all of our participants was excellent and they competed without fear to ensure we reached the finals of both the Boys Football and the Girls Basketball competition.

In addition, numerous medals were collected by individuals during “Track and field” and “Swimming”. The Games concluded with a Gala Disco; a chance for students to celebrate the success of achievement but more importantly to throw a few shapes in time with music in ritual like fashion.
The following students were a credit to the School during their involvement in the games. FOBISIA Team captains Amey & Fay, along with team members, Ann-ann, Ichigo, Tor, Waii, Zahra, Gain, Shree, Moss, Jessie, Jimmy, Tim, Charlie and Andy.

Primary FOBISIA Maths Results

We now have the results for the FOBISIA Maths competition that Sun, Jojo, Data and Tara in Year 6 attended earlier this month.


The Regent’s team came in 15th place out of 29 schools from across South East Asia.
We are very proud of the hard work our students put in to preparing for the competition and for their efforts in the competition itself. It is a very challenging competition with the best mathematicians from each school competing. Our team worked incredibly well together and their excellent team work as well as their outstanding Maths abilities led to a successful result. Mr. Jarrett, our team coach, is already looking to our talented mathematicians in Years 5 and 4 to make a team to compete next year.
Well done team Regent’s!

Primary Maths Fobisia Tournament 2016

The British School, Guangzhou hosted the FOBISIA Primary Maths Challenge from 11 – 13 March 2016.

Thirty schools brought teams of 4 students and competed against each other in a series of challenges. There were logic problems, puzzles, races and tests.

Data, Jojo, Sun and Tara (all in Year 6) represented our school and did a fantastic job. They missed out on the top prizes but had a brilliant time and enjoyed themselves.

We can’t wait for next year!

It was an intensive 4 days of mathematics which included individual tests, problem solving, construction of straw bridges, a Maths Trail, maths puzzles and cooperative team challenges. The competition was fierce between schools, which came from all parts of Asia, from South Korea and China in the north to Singapore and Malaysia in the south. Over 200 students participated. This was the school’s first time at competing at the secondary competition and unfortunately, we came away without medals. However, we all learned much from competing with the other young elite mathematical minds in Asia.

There were many highlights to the trip but most special would be the 3 hour night tour of Kuala Lumpur which included the Petronas Twin Towers, Independence Square, the Menara KL Tower and the city centre; and a final night of magician’s act, light show and disco.
