On Thursday 2nd April, The Globe was full of smiles and enthusiasm for the evening of top class musical entertainment that was presented at the Summer Concert.
The Chamber Orchestra performed magnificently with another classy performance. The brass group whisked us off to the movies with a theme from “Pirates of the Caribbean”, while the string group transported us to the opera performing an instrumental version of “The Flower Duet”. Sally in Year 13 took to the stage for the final time, performing a flute solo that left the audience breathless.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the three students that will be attending the Nord Anglia Global Orchestra Summer School in New York! Chosen by the Nord Anglia audition panel, Mary from Year 6, Kevin from Year 10 and Sally from Year 13, will experience the vibrant culture of the Big Apple.
The Global Orchestra will allow young musicians from around the globe to learn from each other, to perform together and to build their creativity and confidence as performers and global citizens.
They will experience the vibrant culture of New York and benefit from a bespoke workshop delivered at The Juilliard School, a world leader in performing arts education.
When you look up the definition of Songkran, you’ll probably find something like the following:
“The traditional Thai New Year Festival celebrated by water pouring, which is a symbol of washing away all sins and bad luck.”
Regents did not stray (too) far from the definition, as the whole school partook in our own Songkran celebrations. Primary took over the oval for the first half of the morning as Secondary held their end of term assembly in the gym. Once it was done, everyone moved towards the oval and chaos ensued!
Poppy and Temple 2 Temple 2.0
Another successful Temple 2 Temple challenge is complete, Poppy and her committed team of cyclists rode from Ayuthaya To Laos for a second time, embodying what the Regents’ spirit is all about.
The grand total of cash raised was 152,970 Baht of which 122,970 baht will go to Sotpattana School for the Deaf. Plus, there is the wonderful donation of ten refurbished computers from Auto Alliance Thailand.
Both Poppy and her team wish to give their heartfelt thanks to everyone for their generous support for this event. Perhaps they will do it all again next year!
Jade’s 5km Run in Flip-Flops
Another one of our amazing students decided to run an incredible 5km in flip flops to raise money for the buying of the musical instruments for the Hway Ka Lok Boarding House and CDTC Migrant School in Mae Sot.
Raising a magnificent total of 48,150 Baht, Year 2 Jade has bought five guitars and five ukuleles, an amplifier, two wireless microphones, two large speakers, a set of big drums and many other instruments.
Jade will drive up to Mae Sot on May 30th with Ms. Bronwyn from ‘Women with a Mission’ to present the musical instruments to the school on Sunday 31st May.
