1st Football Fixture of the Season: U13 boys

The Regent’s School kicked off the season with a 1-1 draw against a local International School in what was a sweltering affair. The team led by Captain Tor Aminsen have had a build up of 15 weeks preparation for their first away game and excitement was high.

The game was dominated by the Regent’s team but confidence in front of goal proved costly as the home side went ahead early into the second half. Some fine forward burst from Tor pressured the opposition defence but it was a calculated long range strike by Max Watson that pulled things level. There were some good performances by Jimmy, Ann-ann and Amey.

Areas to improve for our next encounter involve being more confident and decisive in our abilities.

Boys’ Under 15 Basketball Tournament

A team comprising of year 9 and 10 boys played in a tournament at the Concordian School on Saturday 31st October. The boys  played in a round robin competition against schools from their own division and much bigger and stronger schools from Division One. They played their hearts out and came away with a 2-3 record. Wins against schools that they had lost to earlier in the year and competing against the Division One teams was the highlight of the day. Jace, Sahasi, Faaiz, Mahasi, Anshen, Shine, Mike, Train, Marino and Tee are to be commended for the way that they played and their efforts at training to improve over the season. A special thanks to Mr Rajesh Choithramani who provided drinks for the boys on the day and supported throughout.

TISAC Table Tennis Competition

Mr Riddelsdell took 8 Students from Year 10 & 11 to the TISAC Table Tennis Competition held at Heathfield’s school on Thursday 24th, September. There was a boys and Girls Competition. Lita, Cookie, Sonam and Tilly represented the girls. JS, Woo, Tyler and Ryan represented the boys.

There was good competition from the likes of Charter, Ascot, BCIS, Concordian, KIS, Heathfield, St Andrew’s and of course The Regent’s. Everybody enjoyed their pool games but Cookie was the only one to come through to the semi-final which she won. So The Regent’s was represented in one of the finals which was contested over three games. It was very close but unfortunately Cookie lost in the third game 11-8 but still came away with the silver medal.

U13 Boys Basketball off to a winning start!

A new team brings with it new challenges, and the Regent’s U13 boys Basketball team were no exception to this commonly found experience. With the addition of many fresh faced Year 7’s I was confident the strength’s of the big Year 8’s, namely, Tor, Jimmy, Auto and Dung would be able to influence them positively to guide us to a maiden victory. After much effort, persistence and hard work this target was achieved; each and every student played an effective role in ensuring success none more so than Captain Jimmy Park. His focus ensured the boys raised themselves during the last quarter to clinch a well won victory.

On Monday 14th September we had our first Basketball match against St. Stephen’s International School. A busy start to the term meant training was limited, so it was hard for us. Our basketball team consisted of Jimmy, Tor, Dung, Auto, Conc, Sam and Andy. Before we started the match I helped coach our new Yr 7 players how to do zone defence. In the first quarter we were losing by 4:0. In the second quarter we managed to draw the scores level at 4:4, and then we start losing again because of low levels of fitness. We found it hard to run and shoot properly. Before we started the final quarter of the game Mr. Burns encouraged us and said we were going to win if we continued to work hard. So in the last quarter we all tried our best and we finally won by 13:10! I was so happy because we won our first Basketball match. It was a hard fought battle with many new players but we all tried our best and we won the game. Scorers were Jimmy 9 points, Tor 2 points and Dung 2 points. I hope we will should good spirit and win the next game also.
