‘Student Guild’ is a very special organization within Regents, which participates in most of the activities going on in the school. There are four main executive positions within the Guild: Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and Visual Arts Director; those four executives have different roles in the Guild (for more information, please check the school constitution). Other than those four executives, we have a position called ‘Form Reps’. This is the main group of students that actually forms the Student Guild. At the start of the year, each form in the school selects a form representative. We currently have 33 form reps in total.
The Student Guild holds a meeting every Thursday lunch time. The agenda for every meeting is always discussed between the four executives beforehand. In the meeting, we mostly talk about the events going on in the school or how we can improve the school for students on a bigger scale. For example, we organized the ‘Pattaya to Philippines’ event which was a whole school event to raise money to help people affected by the disaster in the Philippines during Term One. The Student Guild donated more than 100,000B, with much of the money going to help rebuild a local school in an area of the Philippines affected by the disaster. Recently, the Student Guild organised the ‘Valentines Dance’ for the students to enjoy and during International Day, the Student Guild provided roses to all the competing teams in the Inter-House Dance Competition.
I have been Chairperson of the Student Guild since the beginning of the academic year. What I love most about my position is helping 37 different people come together in order to exchange ideas and to discuss issues at the school. It is certainly a wonderful opportunity for all of the students in our school to have their voice heard. Lastly, it is my main aim to make this year’s Student Guild successful. Both myself and all the Student Guild members are committed to doing our best for the students at Regents International School Pattaya.
