On Friday 2nd April 2021 all Teachers and Teaching Assistants at the Phetchaburi Panyanukul School which is affiliated to the Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin were awarded a Nationally recognised certificate to celebrate the hundreds of hours they have committed to changing the way they think and preparing the first Nationally recognised Assessment document for children with learning difficulties. This document has been endorsed by the Special Education Bureau office, Office of the Basic Education Commission and the Ministry of Education.
The certificates have been recognised by the King Mongkuts University of Technology Thonburi.
In a letter to the School Director on March 29th 2021 Dr Krittika (Kate) Tanprasert Ph.D., SFHEA Director of the Learning Institute stated:
“I would like to congratulate you on the publication of the Assessment of the Core Curriculum Eight Subjects at the Phetchaburi Panyanukul School. I have reviewed the publication prior to agreeing to have the KMUTT logo on it’s cover. From what I have read, I believe this is a work of high quality that requires many hours of hard work.
I believe that this would be a good start of the further development of special education development as I believe the assessment is a key to success of all education. I have to thank you and Dr Keith Humphreys for this initiative. I believe without your leadership, innovative mind, and the courage to step out from the norm, this book would not have been completed.
With this said, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to you and the teachers at Phetchaburi Panyanukul School”
Also attending the event from the Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin were Immediate Past President Napa Keawtem, Administration Chair Torsten Voigt, Youth Leadership Chair Benjamas Uamsa-Ard and President Elect Phil Lawrence.
The certificates were presented by the school Director Ajarn Weera and Dr Keith Humphreys. Under their leadership the school has spent the last 3 years changing the establishment from a good care center to an educational school where the Thai National curriculum is taught to every child. This has been a major achievement by the teachers and the RCRHH flagship project support which has made a significant contribution to the success of the project.
In Ajarn Weera’s closing speech he stated that the parents were very happy because they saw the development of their children from the new teaching and learning but the best assessment and successful factor was that all the students were very happy to learn, they wanted to start class as soon as possible, even during the school break now, students have called the school asking when they can start again, they would like to come back and study.
