Summer School Began towards the end of June. The popular holiday course held at Regents and around many of the attractions Pattaya has to offer is already proving to be a hit with students.
Taking in activities such as The Flight of the Gibbon, Underwater World, Varuna Yacht Club, Pattaya Sheep Farm and many more, remaining at school for the first part of the school break is turning into a good choice.
Many students are also using the time to brush up on their English language skills with dedicated ESL teachers on the Summer School staff.
Perhaps the most anticipated week in the whole year for Secondary pupils as it offers students the chance to travel either outside Thailand or domestically to discover new locations and cultures and learn more about the world we live in.
This year, Regents students travelled to London as part of a theatre trip, Bali – to go surfing, Cambodia and various locations around Thailand also. Many students have returned to their homes with big smiles on their faces and happy to be a Regents pupil – given all of the opportunities offered to them.
End of Year Assemblies
The last few weeks of any school year is a busy time in the Globe Theatre with various assemblies honouring the efforts of our students, saying goodbye to the Year 13’s, and having end of year performances viewed by parents and staff.
This year was special for Principal Iain Blaikie as he completed his first year in the top job at Regents. He was delighted at the number of excellent performances of the Reception and Primary students as well as very enthused at the many academic successes of both the Primary and Secondary students.
Work begins on improving School Facilities
In order to complete the many projects slated for completion before students return in September, work began on many sites around the school.
A sports hall, an artificial pitch, a new learners’ pool, new science labs, new technology facilities, improved ICT and much more are either under construction, or not far away. It’s a staggering level of re-investment and all of it is aimed at improving the students’ educational experience.
Accreditation Report Shows Regents Has Excellent Prospects for the Future
The report released in June after Regents was independently inspected by the experienced charity CfBT Education Trust made note of the work teachers at our school are doing to ensure students are getting the best overall education they can.
The report is highly complementary of the transformation in the school since the last report three years ago. According to the inspectors, the curriculum is outstanding, behaviour exemplary, the co-curricular programme exceptional, students’ personal development outstanding, the care and support of students outstanding and all teaching good to outstanding.
