Sikh Community donates towards YWCA scholarships

Vimolrat Singnikorn
The Pattaya Thai-Sikh Community, led by Amrik Singh Kalra, president, has made a donation to the YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center for distribution as scholarships.
The community on July 20 presented the funds to Nittaya Patimasongkroh, chairwoman of the YWCA Bangkok-Pattaya Center, and Premruedee Jittiwutthikarn, who heads the center’s Lunch Project, a part of the YWCA’s Warm Family Project.
Nittaya said that the money would be added to the education fund under the Warm Family project, and that the scholarships would be presented to Pattaya City schools during a ceremony on August 26 at Mike Shopping Mall.
The Warm Family Project, which began 18 years ago, currently assists approximately 500 students from primary school class 1 to high school. This year the YWCA plans to add one scholarship for a deserving bachelor’s degree student. The association will pay all expenses for the entire education year for this student.
Anyone interested in donating to the scholarship program can contact the Young Women’s Christian Association of Bangkok-Pattaya at address 206/98, Soi Town in Town, Central Pattaya Road, 20150, tel. & fax. 038-716316.

Pupils from the College at Asian University dance their way to success

Black Modern danced their way to 4th place
in the recent Dance-battle at Laemtong, Rayong.

Six pupils from the College at Asian University formed a dance team, calling themselves Black Modern, and entered the Dance-battle at Laemtong, Rayong. On July 26, the first day of the competition, they competed against twenty-four other teams, many of whom were professional dancers and danced their way through to the final stage, with seven other teams. They had a busy Saturday evening, designing and preparing a new dance routine for the finals on Sunday July 27, and they were rewarded with fourth place.
The team members were Bow, Durian, Jay and Maratti (Grade 12, science), Ken (Grade 11, humanities) and Vor (Grade 10, science) who were aided and encouraged by their PE teacher, Ajarn Nita.
