After their recent 50 medal success at the FOBISIA Games and a fourth consecutive win at the annual ESAC Cross Country Championships, the students at Regents International School Pattaya celebrated a great first term of sport with their very own Secondary Sports Day.

On Thursday 12th December students gathered on the school’s Oval on a gloriously sunny day for an afternoon of fun-filled sport and cheering of their fellow classmates.

In a sea of red, blue, yellow and green sports kit, Regents’ students and their teachers embraced their in-house competition and raced for team points in many track and field events including the classic egg and spoon race and the all-important Teachers’ Relay race.

There were dives for the finish line, roars from the crowd and even extreme levels of competiveness in the teachers’ race, all of which contributed to a great day of sport, challenge and teamwork.

Needless to say there were some very impressive times recorded – well done to all participants!”
