An Interview with Regents International School Pattaya Head Students

After a hectic student election process, a Regents’ head girl and boy has been chosen. Game and Tusnim are both Thai nationals and Year 12 students of the world renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Taking time in between their studies, they talk about the election process and what the future holds.

Firstly, congratulations on your recently attained positions of head boy and girl, how does that feel?

Tusnim: It’s so exciting being in this position; I think it has really opened up my eyes in terms of what I am capable of. Being in this leading role is putting me on a path to success.

Game: I have been at this school for 14 years of my life, so becoming head boy makes me feel like I have fulfilled my potential. My brother was also head boy so it is pretty special for my family too. I have many ideas of how we can make this school even better and I am excited to share those ideas as the student body representative.

 

What was the process of election like?

Game: The steps were really challenging. For example the public speaking was daunting and required us to think on our feet. I am glad it was tough, because those of us who really wanted to be there were, right until the end.

Tusnim: You really had to look for the important parts of each step and think about it. I treated it a bit like a game; even though it was serious it helped me to relax. Each level got a bit harder; the experience was certainly valuable for me personally.

 

Did you expect to come out on top?

Tusnim: Throughout the whole election process I told myself to just enjoy it and expect nothing. I did not want to get ahead of myself and not perform well due to being nervous, so it was a surprise to be elected, yeah.

Game: From the bottom of my heart I would have been happy if any one of us in this whole process had won. Everyone did such an amazing job and I would have been happy to call them my head of school. I guess I’m just lucky.

 

Do you feel that Regents is fostering a real can-do attitude in the both of you?

Game: Regents is such a wonderful community, there are so many opportunities to do great things. The teachers instill self-confidence in me and I am very thankful for that.

Tusnim: Yes, absolutely. The support and guidance you receive as a student at Regents is part of the schools aims, it has helped me step out of my comfort zone and be a more critical thinker.

 

As Thais, do you feel like you are representing your community?

Tusnim: Yes, it is one of the biggest things you can do and it not only brings honor on me but my whole family. For a Thai to be head student at an international school is definitely a big deal. There are so many nationalities at the school, so what are the chances?

Game:  There are some Thais who choose to shy away from opportunities like this because they do not think it is possible. I feel like I represent them and prove that they can take the step up. I think this role is about being a role model and I take that seriously.

 

Many Thai students leave after year 11 to go to University, what made you stay?

Game: I think many Thais and their parents don’t see the value in continuing if the option to go to university exists at age 16. I wanted to stay because I think the IB course will give me the best chance in progressing towards my chosen career as a young adult.

Tusnim: I wanted to stay because I believe in personal development, the longer I stay the more I realise what I am capable of as a person. I really want to do well this year to ensure I made the right decision.

 

What are your aims post-school? Do you have any Universities in mind?

Tusnim: I am really interested in the business/economics/finance side of things, my family wants me to stay in Asia so I am looking at Hong Kong as an option but we will have to wait and see at this stage.

Game: I really want to get into medicine and you obviously need really good grades to get into a good school. After talking to many of my teachers, I know what prevents students from getting 45 points in IB, so I am determined to get there. I want to study in the U.K; Edinburgh or possibly even Cambridge.

 

What would you say is the best thing about attending Regents and why would it be a school you recommend to others?

Game: As an international school it has such a variety of people, cultures and countries represented. I have had such an amazing opportunity to understand about diversity and life outside of Thailand, and for that I am so grateful.

Tusnim: Regents International School Pattaya is a part of my life; it’s just like a family. The teachers here are so supportive and always willing to help guide us through what we are capable of. It is a unique place that you need to experience.
