Visited the Recruit Training Center of the Royal Thai Navy

While learning from the weekly theme “Trees,” children of Sotpattana School for the Deaf went on a study tour to Sattahip. Along with the preschool kids of the Pattaya Orphanage, the young learners visited the Recruit Training Center of the Royal Thai Navy where they saw and experienced how our King’s renowned philosophy on Sufficiency Economy is possible and practical. The close view of various animals, especially buffaloes, for the first time made the children very excited. The resource persons, led by Sub-Lt Suphachai Kerdcharoenporn, introduced the party to farming activities and each child prepared a potted plant for which they would bring back and continue to care. In the afternoon, they stopped at the “Wonder Farm” to take a lovely lunch and be in touch with the various animals, i.e. rabbits and goats. Thank you very much for all concerned for this wonderful trip!
