Regents International School Pattaya is enjoying another successful year as the Eastern Seaboard’s only LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Drama) International Examination Centre. This week over 108 eager drama students from Regents and other international schools in the area took their LAMDA exams at the school, making it a record year for entrants.
Over 60 Regents’ students were joined by candidates from Garden International School and St Andrews School Rayong to take part in the internationally-recognised LAMDA Acting exams. Students can be entered for the Gold, Silver or Bronze LAMDA award, depending upon their level of proficiency. The initiative is proving to be so popular that the school is looking to expand next year to include the assessments in Poetry and Prose Reading, Musical Theatre, Improvisation and Devised Theatre.
Just some of the Regents students who took LAMDA exams.
Anastasia, who is an IB Diploma student at Regents, entered for this year’s Gold Award. She commented, “I really feel that the LAMDA exams have broadened my range as an actor as well as giving me the opportunity to work on a selection of challenging plays and characters.”
Nicholas Lewis, Head of Drama at Regents, commented, “The students from all the schools have performed brilliantly and it’s great to see them come out of any exam with smiles on their faces. Taking part in the LAMDA exams gives you the confidence and skills to present yourself under pressure to someone you don’t know. Students taking these exams are better prepared for job interviews, for any profession, and Drama School auditions in the future.”
