Regents Launch anticipated Collaboration with The Juilliard School – New York.
A wonderful night of performances by talented Regents musicians and Juilliard Alumnus/Violinist extraordinaire Charles Yang, marked the day that performing arts at our school went to another level.
It was a comprehensive showcase of the school’s orchestra, choir as well as individual vocalists and instrumentalists. These students will be the first beneficiaries of a curriculum designed to foster creativity and motivation to excel.
With over 100 years honing the talents of young performers, The Juilliard School in New York is widely regarded as a place where good musicians and performers become exceptional ones, boasting alumni such as actors Robin Williams and Composer John Williams.
Gods Vs Monsters ISTA Festival
Over 120 students from eight International Schools recently attended an action-packed weekend of Drama activities. The hugely creative groups of students came from all parts of Asia including India, Bangladesh, Cambodia and Indonesia.
The visit to The Sanctuary of Truth enabled the core workshop groups to explore the powerful and thought-provoking theme of ‘Gods vs. Monsters’ in greater depth.
On the final afternoon there was a sharing of the works developed in the five different workshops. They were presented in front of an appreciative audience of parents and friends on the stage of the Regents’ Globe Theatre.
Reception Show ‘Billy Goats’ Gruff’
All the children in Reception had a special role to play in our end of year production ‘Billy Goats Gruff’. Whether it was dancing, singing, doing actions or playing percussion instruments, there was something for everyone; they even made some of our own stage props and costumes!
Creative Arts encompasses a large part of the Early Years Curriculum and our children are encouraged to rise to these exciting challenges every day. I wonder what show they can put on next year?
Regents get behind relief aid in Nepal
On the 25th April, a violent earthquake shook Nepal. The 7.8 magnitude tremor caused major damage to the area as well as killing over 7,000 people. Many more families have lost their homes and have little to no access to running water or electricity.
Regents has strong ties with many Nepalese schools and organisation’s, so our first initiative was a ‘No Uniform for Nepal’ day. The Secondary School raised an amazing 82,000THB!
Our next initiative was “Pattaya to Pokhara” which involved walking, running or swimming the 3,614km between the 2 cities on the schools’ running track and in the swimming pool. The total raised from this event was almost 20,000 THB!
Well done to everyone who participated and/or donated, your generosity means a lot.
As soon as the first day started in Beijing, the Regents Lions Primary FOBISIA team were into action, eventually collecting a combined 50 medals in swimming and athletics.
On Day two the focus shifted to Tee-Ball where all the schools were once again preparing themselves for a long day of competition. After an afternoons’ hard work our efforts paid off as the Year 5 and Year 6 teams endured to both win silver medals.
Unfortunately, day three was not so fruitful with all of our football teams missing out on medals in tough windy conditions. Thus, the Regents’ Lions journey had concluded with a staggering total medal haul in excess of 100, with all of the athletes taking home a medal.
Graduation and Prom Night
Another school year almost over, and with it another emotional and enjoyable graduation ceremony and prom night is wrapped up also.
45 students received their International Baccalaureate (IB) diplomas from Principal Iain Blaikie in front of many family and friends keen to celebrate the wonderful achievement.
After the more formal engagements had taken place, students were able to let their hair down and dance the night away at the official prom night.
A big congratulation’s to all of those in the 2014/15 graduating class. We wish you all the best for your future!
