An excited team of Primary students from Regents International School Pattaya flew over 1000km to the ELC International School in Malaysia earlier this month to take part in the 2015 Primary FOBISIA (Federation of British International Schools in Asia) games.

Thirty-six Regents’ students joined children from six other schools from across Asia to compete in four main sporting competitions: swimming, athletics, football and T-ball.

After four days of fun competition and great camaraderie the sporting event ended on a high for Regents, with the students bringing home well over 50 medals.

Head of PE, Paul Madden commented: “Once again we have had the opportunity to represent the school at the Primary FOBISIA Games in Malaysia.  It was a busy four days that left our students absolutely drained.  During the competition, they have the opportunity to meet students from different schools and make ‘FOBISIA friends’, who they often stay in touch with for years to come.
