Regents International School Pattaya underlined its strong academic credentials on 8 March, when a team of four boys from Year 7 clinched first place at the History Bowl and Bee Competition in Bangkok. In doing so, they became the only team entered to win every single round of the competition.

In a competition which included Harrow and NIST, the Regents team of Kevin, Brandon, Jed and Sung Eun secured a place in the final with an unstoppable sequence of victories. Facing the International Community School Bangkok in the final, a quick-fire round on the death of Julius Caesar proved decisive and the Regents team went on to claim the winners’ plaque. The team has qualified for the Asian Championship to be held in Hong Kong later this year.

There were also a number of notable solo performances, with two Regents students, Bel and Brandon, also making it through to the Asian Championships as individuals.

Samantha Jones, Head of History at Regents, commented, “I was incredibly impressed by all of our students who took part in the competition. The questions were tough but nobody gave up, even if they lost a game they showed resilience and dedication throughout the rounds. It was fantastic to see all our students supporting the Year 7’s in the finals and amazing when they won!”
