A student at The Regent’s School Pattaya has donated a prize bursary to Pattaya School for Deaf Children after achieving academic success throughout the year.
Poppy Mulford was recently named the School’s Outstanding Global Citizen for this academic year, and her prize was a bursary worth $US300 to donate or spend on any community partner or project connected to our school.

Poppy chose Pattaya School for Deaf Children, because one of the biggest impacts on Poppy this year was meeting a young girl from the school called Yok during Round Square Week. The children, including Yok, came in to play sport, thus a friendship blossomed and Yok taught Poppy some sign language.
This donation was handed over on the morning of Saturday 22nd June. Poppy and her parents, Yok and some of her friends and teachers and a group from Regent’s all paid a visit to the community partner to celebrate the connection.
