OrBorJor extends school MoUs | Thaiger

PHUKET: The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreements between the Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor) and seven Phuket schools have been extended for three years, effectively allowing the OrBorJor to continue providing support for the schools through to 2009.

The seven schools are Baan Maireab, Kathu Wittaya, Cherng Talay Wittayakom, Muang Phuket, Baan Talad Neua, Thalang Pranangsang and Baan Nabon.

OrBorJor President Anchalee Vanich-Thepabutr said, “We have continually developed education management to raise the standard of education in Phuket. Every year we spend at least 100 million baht, or about one quarter of our entire budget, on education.”

Kathu Wittaya School Director Kham Sukhaphan said that in addition to raising the standards of his school, the MOU has brought in funding to carry out repairs to the school.

“The OrBorJor has built a new study building and renovated an old building for us. They have also fixed our problem of not having enough teachers. And because of the high standards of the teachers from the Prince of Songkla University, we have a high percentage of our students going on to study at university.”

K. Anchalee said that this year the OrBorJor will spend about 22.5 million baht on hiring 233 teachers.

“The OrBorJor will start science classes at Muang Phuket and Baan Talad Neua schools that will be taught by professional biology, chemistry and physics lecturers from Prince of Songkla University, Phuket campus,” she added.
