TISAC Athletics Success!

On Monday 20th, we took a team of 30 plus students to represent Regent’s at the TISAC Athletics competition. Full of anticipation and excitement after a very successful and enjoyable Sports Day, the students were focused and motivated for a good day of Athletics.

The day started strong, with Zak and Layla bringing home gold for the 800m event, showing outstanding pace throughout. The rest of the team followed suit, racking up an impressive medal haul including gold for Ashaank who stepped in last minute to throw the Javelin for the Senior boys team and the U13 boys relay team coming in first place.

The amazing team effort paid off, with U13’s and U15’s teams placing second and the Senior’s placing third. Not bad for a Senior team limited to 8 individuals in total! Overall, Regent’s came away with 30 medals, including 11 gold, 9 silver and 10 bronze.

An amazing performance, and what a fantastic day. Making their teachers and their school extremely proud!

Senior Girls Football Tournament

As we hopped on the bus, both the excitement and anxiety had driven us to strive for optimum teamwork and of course, our main goal: have fun. Despite the scorching rays of the sun (almost burning our flesh), the climate did not distract us from the thrilling sensation of chanting out loud and proud “TEAM!” as we commence our first tournament.

We approached the matches with maximal enthusiasm. Whilst watching my team play from the substitute seating, I could sense their determination to honour our school with pride. There was no time for panting or sweat as we were having a shortage of goals (a.k.a we were losing). Our conscience was not fully connected to our foot movement, and that is when we were partially losing hope.

However, we were able to make a U-turn, we turned the wheel and thanks to the spirit of optimism (and excellent coach feedback), we had brought back motivation within the team. We manned up, clenched our teeth and fists and with all our forces, aimed for the goal. Our main strikers, Maryam and Florence outstandingly showcased impressive shots.

Conclusively, we had made it to the finals and gloriously took home third place on our first tournament as a team. We would like to thank Mr Jones, our coach; who has practically been our sixth sense throughout the matches, for always supporting us and giving us the training and strength we needed. This has been an unforgettable experience during our senior year at regents, and we are all looking forward to many more gleeful episodes.

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.

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.

By Mr. Lee Burns, Head of PE & Sport

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.
