On Thursday November 27th 2014 a team of government officials, including members of Phuket Provincial Administration Office welcomed an assessment committee from the Royal Patronage Pre-school Scheme, at Sathit Ruam Wittaya School in Tambon Rassada, Amphoe Muang, Phuket. PPAO President Advisor – Boonserm Suwannarathphoom was accompanied by PPAO Council Members – Prasit Sinsaowapak and Chusak Sematrakul, Director of Religion and Culture Education Division – Ouiporn Sakultan. Also joining the welcoming team were School Director – Jansuwan Tampanon, School Committee, teachers, pupils, parents and guests.
Welcoming the assessment committee, Mr Boonserm explained that education is at the top priority of PPAO works. The organization continually supports education programs of all shapes and forms with the aims to provide quality schools and institutions that will in turn produce outstanding and ethical students. He added that primary education is especially important as it forms the basis of future development of young people.
Realizing this significance, PPAO has put forward Sathit Ruam Wittaya School to be a model pre-school, a proposal that is agreed upon by the school administrators, teachers, parents and the community. Under its excellent management and judging from its yearly intake, the school has become a successful institution in its own right.
While thanking all and welcoming the assessment committee, Mr Boonserm said both the school and PPAO welcome suggestions and comments the committee may have to offer.
Welcoming the committee, the school director Mrs Jansuwan explained that Sathit Ruam Wittaya School is one of the PPAO’s schools. It has the opportunity to welcome the assessment committee for the third time.
The school has 13 teachers, one office administrator, two finance administrators, one janitor, two security guards, two housekeepers, and one executive. Altogether, 20 personnel form the school team.
At its core, the school has developed a program to educate children in four areas, namely physical, emotional, social and intellectual through “Project Approach” activities and games that offer freedom while respecting local wisdom and heritage. The school also adopts a natural approach in teaching English to its pupils. Its educational programs are acknowledged by the community, parents and local administrative offices alike. The school would welcome any suggestions and proposals made by the assessment committee, said Mrs Jansuwan.
