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!

Year 4 Thai Trip to Rattanakhosin

Year 4 went on a trip to this famous museum. We saw a movie about the history of Thailand (Siam). Then next we heard the story about people from old Thailand and the old buildings.

Next we learned about how Thai people traditionally made food and farmed rice. We looked at how people used to dress long ago in traditional clothes.

After a snack, we went to the games which Thai children played in the past. That was a lot of fun.

Finally we learned about traditional puppet shows and tried to do it ourselves.

We all had a great day out with the Thai department teacher.

“Weighing things up” in Reception!

We have been using the seesaw in the playground to help us to learn about weight. We found out who was heavier, lighter or about the same weight as ourselves.
We also used balances and cubes to weigh different objects around us.

Partial Solar Eclipse

On Wednesday the 9th of March at 07:38am Regents International School students were lucky enough to view one of the rarest celestial events, an eclipse of the Sun.

The Sun was partially eclipsed for nearly 2 hours and at its maximum coverage, 41% was hidden from our view by the Moon.

Many students took part and viewed the event through pin hole cameras, the camera on their mobile device and most successfully by looking through a CD. All of these methods made it safe see what was happening and gave us all an unforgettable experience.

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.

2016 Bow Seat Ocean Awareness Student Contest

From http://www.fromthebowseat.org

Here are some of our student entries.

“We invite middle and high school students from around the world to participate in the 2016 Ocean Awareness Student Contest! The theme is Making Meaning out of Ocean Pollution, and it challenges you to research, explore, interpret, and say something meaningful about the connections between human activities and the health of our oceans.

This year, we challenge you to focus on ONE type of ocean pollutionand “make meaning” of it through art, poetry, prose, or film. We would encourage you to connect it with your own life, your own local community, or something else that is personally meaningful to you, but what’s most important is to pick a topic that inspires and motivates you.

This is an interdisciplinary contest that weaves together ocean awareness, creativity, and advocacy. Advocacy means taking a stand for something you believe in. It requires problem-solving skills, assertiveness, and most of all, knowing when to call the world to action.

While learning from science, history, and personal experience will inform your entry, there is no “right” way to do meaningful advocacy. Use your creativity to make art, poetry, prose, or films that inspire and empower a new generation of ocean stewardship!”

Health and Wellbeing Secondary Theme Day

On Wednesday 2nd March Regent’s School Bangkok hosted the 2nd Health and Wellbeing Theme Day. The day began with secondary students discussing in their tutor groups case studies on obesity, depression and other mental health disorders. Students pondered ‘Why do you think there are so many students with mental health / obesity problems these days?’ ‘How do students in international schools like Regents differ from those in the UK in terms of obesity / mental health issues?’ ‘What can the school, students, and parents do to support them?’. Students were them introduced to the task of creating an impacting poster as part of the Regents Health and Wellbeing Poster Competition to bring awareness to an health issue of their choice.

Students then walked over the auditorium to start activities led by our Prefect Team and hosted by Head students, Adarsh Puri and Mint Waisarayudh. We were introduced to current physical and mental health issues faced globally and locally. The whole secondary school then took part in an interactive quiz, guessing the answers to questions such as “1 in how many people suffer from some sort of mental disorder?”. Students had to run to the corner representing their answer, e.g. “2, 3, 4 or 10”. If they were correct they could do ‘Happy Baby’ yoga pose, if they were incorrect it was “25 Star Jumps”! FYI – The correct answer is 1 in 4 people suffer from some sort of mental disorder.

After the auditorium session, students rotated through the school, attending workshops on topics such as ‘Global Issues – Food & Water’, ‘Tai Qi’, and ‘Alcohol and Drugs’ and more. At lunchtime, the Health and Wellbeing Fair began which included companies such as Maprao Coconut Water, Hilltribe Organics, Super Fresh Hydroponic vegetables, Psychology Services Bangkok as well as an interactive lesson from Asia Parkour. The Year 12s also prepared their own stalls selling healthy treats such as natural sugar ice cream, fruit delight, and gluten-free healthy pancakes.

At the end of the day, students worked on their posters and wrote out their reflections on yellow ‘leaves’ pinned to the ‘Reflection Tree’ . As one student put it “I learned how to take care of myself better”, which is what we hope all students will concentrate on this year as we come closer to exams.
