Pattaya’s Educational Development Committee is pushing forward a project to give poor children a chance to attend international schools to raise overall educational levels in the city.
Committee Vice Chairman Pratheep ‘Peter’ Malhotra, MD of Pattaya Mail Media Group met with Wannapa Wannasri, director of Pattaya Education Research and Development Department on Nov. 13 to discuss the initiative.
Wannapa Wannasri (2nd left) and Pratheep Malhotra (3rd left) meet with the Pattaya Educational Development Committee to discuss how to choose 2 worthy Pattaya students to receive an education at Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok.
The objective is to push forward some of the underprivileged children in Pattaya public schools between the ages of 7 and 11 who deserve to continue their studies in international-caliber schools, such as Bromsgrove International School in Bangkok.
The Education Development Committee recently received a letter from Dr. Dan Moore, Head of School and CEO of Bromsgrove International, stating the school would be interested in receiving underprivileged children in Pattaya with outstanding grades.
He asked the panel to select one male and one female student to attend Bromsgrove. Scholarships for the chosen students will be wholly supported by the school.
In his letter Dr. Dan Moore wrote, “The Board of Governors at Bromsgrove really do want to change the lives of two Pattaya children and are hopeful that with your help, we can find two deserving students for these wonderful scholarships.”
Bromsgrove International School provides boarding and day school education for students aged 2-18 years of age. It was founded in 2002 under the name of Windsor International School and owned by Windsor Education Co. Ltd.
Rapid expansion led the school to open its new boarding facilities in January 2006. Boarding students from Thailand, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, Hong Kong, and Australia broadened and added to the growing diversity of the student body.
It is an accredited University of Cambridge (CIE) examination centre. Bromsgrove is also connected to the International Schools Association of Thailand, Boarding Schools Association, Council of International Schools, International Award for Young Learners and Federation of British International Schools in Asia.
