A day out for a good cause


Regent’s School Pattaya hosts Picnic in the Park 2013

Returning for a third year, The Regent’s School Pattaya’s Picnic in the Park was a wonderful day, buzzing with community spirit. The structure remained by and large the same as the previous years but with the sense of seclusion that the new venue had to offer the returning combination of musical performances, food and fun felt even more relaxed and intimate than previous years.

Under the much needed shade of the trees the crowd enjoyed a programme that had a variety of performances, organized by Year 12 student Julianne with the support of Mr. Clarence, music teacher, and the Round Square team.

Father Dennis from the Father Ray Foundation, the organization that shares the organisation of the event, greeted the attendees and thanked them for their valued contribution which will aid their efforts in constructing a Special Needs Centre at the Father Ray Foundation. A justified greeting of appreciation it would seem as the event drew in an impressive 33,000 baht.

The performances involved the school’s youngest students alongside some of the oldest students and even parents and staff. Students from St. Andrews School, Garden International School and Father Ray’s Children Home also shared the stage, contributing to the talent that kept the picnickers entertained. Ranging from dance numbers to solo musical numbers, the brave performers kept spirits high.

The efforts of the Australian BBQ team did not go unnoticed and their delicious burgers and hot dogs once again made a substantial contribution to the community event.
