Phuket City Municipality will hold a 2010 Municipal Student Sport Competition on July 9th-17th 2010, at Sapan Hin Sport Center, Surakul Stadium and Sanam Chai Field. This competition would be held to support children to exercise and promote solidarity among them.
Somjai Suwansupana, the Mayor of Phuket City Municipality, said that the competition would be held following the 4th policy plan on citizens and children capability development (2007 – 2011). The plan mainly focuses on health, mental and intelligence development for people in Phuket. She believes that apart from good health and harmony of teachers and students of Phuket City municipal schools formed during the competition, sport was the best way to prevent children and people away from drugs as well.
The grand opening of the competition would take place on July 9th 2010, at Gymnasium 1 in Sapan Hin Sport Center, and the closing ceremony would be on July 17th 2010, at Surakul Stadium.
