At the World Scholars Tournament of Champions, RSC’s four students brought home silver and gold medals – impressing with their debating skills against teams from all around the world.

We’re extremely proud of our four students who recently represented Escuela de Rugby de Tailandia at the World Scholars ‘Tournament of Champions’. Rute, Si Eun, Pam and Prinn were joined by team members from Shrewsbury International School Bangkok on an incredible trip to Yale in the US.

It was no mean feat going up against top teams from around the world in this prestigious debating contest. There were a range of gold and silver medals achieved by all of our students, who gained impressive results in this challenging tournament – and our Senior Team finished 21st overall!

In addition to the tournament, our students were able to take tours of Yale, Harvard and MIT with current undergraduates; an amazing opportunity for these bright and ambitious young Rugby School Thailand students to explore some top US universities.

Following the tournament, our staff and students enjoyed some well-deserved leisure time in New York City, where they visited the 9/11 memorial museum, the Met Museum and watched Hamilton on Broadway. All in all, the trip was an invaluable experience that demonstrated how Rugby School Thailand students really do embody our learner profile – they are resilient, versatile, reflective, globally-minded, thinkers, communicators, and collaborators!
