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 Rugby School Thailand 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!

Rugby School Thailand

Rugby School Thailand is een internationale dag- en kostschool, waarvan de aanpak is gebaseerd op het wereldberoemde Britse privéschoolmodel, en waarvan het leerplan is ontleend aan het beste van het Nationale Leerplan van Engeland & Wales en het Leerplan van de Onafhankelijke Scholen van het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Het is de eerste en enige school die de naam draagt van haar prestigieuze moeder, Rugby School (UK), die 450 jaar geleden werd opgericht en waar de wereldberoemde sport vandaan komt.
