At 7:04 a.m. on March 1, 2023, Stephen Fabia, Kili ’23 Expedition Leader and all eleven of the amazing students of Regents International School Pattaya successfully made it to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world!
After 6 days of hiking and scrambling through the heat, the rain, the snow and the freezing cold, it was all worth it when, after an 8-hour push through the night, they finally reached the summit; Uhuru Peak.
“At 5980 metres, our students have achieved something truly incredible in having 100% of the team reach the summit. This is an experience that will live with them forever and we are all so very proud of them.” Stephen Fabia said excitedly. “We did it!”
There were two teachers who accompanied the students on this exciting expedition, Stephen Fabia and Lakshmi Induprasad. Unfortunately Lakshmi didn’t make it to the summit because she had to accompany a student from another school back down.
The teachers, staff and students of Regents International School Pattaya praise and congratulate the following students who have made history and achieved world recognition by climbing to the top of Mount Kilimajaro: So Min Jin (Year 12.2), Snhawan Pimrapat (Year 11.2), Gabriela Lozano (Year 12.2), Alexander Brent (11.2), Kevin Brandt (Year 12.2), Toby Felts (11.2), Louis Forsans (Year 12.2), Lorenzo González (Year 11.3), Egor Guzeev (Year 8.3), Swarit Kumar Singh (Year 12.3) and Alexandre Benchoula (Year 11.3).
