11 November 2009 – Phuket Governor Vichai Praisa-ngob in front of Phuket City Hall presented a 115 horsepower Yanmar generator to Baan Koh Lohn School. Acting school direct Sompoch Ardkaew and a group of students representing the school received the generator.
Governor Vichai said Baan Koh Lohn School is the only school in Phuket that needs the generator. They have no solar energy system installed and the existing generation they have is worn out.
Province realized it is important for them to have electricity, therefore passed on this generator contributed by The Comptroller General’s Department. So that 12 students and 4 teaching staff can use it.
Located on Lohn island, 4 km away from the Phuket island, the school is to be reached only by boat. The generator is not the only thing the school needs. In fact, they are still deficient.
