Our partners in Thailand

The key partner is the Ministry of Education and three schools in Bangkok were chosen at the start of the project in October 2003.

Rongrian Mahanoparam is a medium sized school in one of the many suburbs of Bangkok with a very enthusiastic senior management and teaching staff
Rongrian Nonsiwittaya is a very large school with 3000 students and it is in the centre of Bangkok.  It has a great deal of enthusiasm for the project and there was already co-operative working across departments
Rongrian Yothinburana is one a few English Programme Schools in Thailand where a third of students receive all of their studies in English. The PE department are enjoying their involvement in the project
Cascade training is high on the agenda with schools being identified in two other cities, Chiang Mai and Hat Yai
Rongrian Chakkamkanathorn is situated in the Lamphun Province in the North of Thailand. The school used to be an all boys school but today one third of students are girls. The school has excellent sports facilities and an English Department who is enthusiastic about linking to the UK

UK-Thailand school partnerships

The link started well with visits from the Head Teachers of Angley School and Herne Bay High School.  The schools are both located in Kent and are able to work closely together.  A further 15 schools will be on board in February 2004.

Festivals and events

The first Young Leaders in Thailand applied their newly learned skills and organised a sports event, which was admired by all who attended. Find out more...

A first link between Young Leaders in Thailand and the UK took the form of a video-conference between Angley School and Rongrian Nonsiwittaya. Held on 22nd December 2003 connecting seven students and teachers sitting in the British Council office in London with 50 people at Chulalongkorn University, it was a great success.    

Topics included traditional sports, rugby and cricket in the UK, and in Thailand trakkor and pattong; exchanging experiences of organising sport and discussing hopes about linking the two schools.

After the conference it was impossible to believe that the Young Leaders had been talking, thousands of miles apart, with seven hours' time difference and sometimes through an interpreter!
