Bannawang School has 145 children between the ages of 4 and 11 and is situated on the outskirts of Pattaya. Like many village schools, they do not feature high on the list to receive financial assistance when some equipment or repairs are needed.
Nittaya Patimasongkroh from the YWCA asked Pattaya Sports Club to visit the school, for they had a problem. When PSC visited the school, 40 of the younger children were hard at work learning to read and write Thai and, like many schools, are introduced to English at an early age.
As it was.
So what was the problem? As you can see from the photograph, they had no desks and had to lie on the floor to complete their studies. Not an ideal situation to complete your best work for anyone.
Pattaya Sports Club came to the rescue, not on a white charger in shining armour but with sufficient funds to purchase chairs and desks. These had to be made to measure, for as you can imagine, 4 and 5 year old children would find it difficult to reach normal sized desks.
The smiles on the children’s faces tells the story so when Nittaya and Noi passed around some refreshments, everyone is sabai, sabai.
Thank you PSC.
At last, something to drink.
