On 6th March four Primary-aged students from Regents International School Pattaya travelled over 1,000 miles to Alice Smith School in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to compete in the Primary Math’s Challenge run by the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA). Competing against 14 other international schools from all over Asia, the team of Year 6 students acquitted themselves well in this highly academic competition.

Jo Brown, Year 6 Teacher commented, “The four students faced some very difficult challenges, but persevered with enthusiasm and diligence. They are a real credit to the school.”

The FOBISIA Primary Math’s Team really enjoyed the competition. “Although we didn’t win a trophy we had an amazing experience and got to meet lots of new people. We learnt that you should never give up and it is not necessarily about the winning, but the taking part that matters. FOBISIA Maths Challenge 2014 was amazing and we hope next year’s team will have as much fun as we did!”
