Pattaya’s 11 schools will serve up traditional Thai food and music for National Children’s and Teachers Day Jan. 14.
At a Dec. 16 Pattaya City Hall meeting, Deputy Mayor Wattana Chantanawaranon told representatives from the neighborhoods surrounding the city’s public schools that each community would be allotted 15,000 baht to prepare a menu of meals, desserts and beverages and to prepare its concert.
Deputy Mayor Wattana Chantanawaranon discuses with a committee plans for this year’s Children’s Day activities.
The per-neighborhood budget was raised 50 percent this year after Thailand’s flooding crisis, which has seen commodities prices increase, he said.
In addition to fried and grilled dishes, the students and teachers will put on shows featuring singing, acting and dancing at city hall from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
There also will be a question-and-answer session for the kids with prizes and awards.
