OrBorJor signs up 7th school

PHUKET CITY: The Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor) has added a seventh school to its portfolio in its drive to promote educational excellence in Phuket.

At a ceremony at The Metropole hotel on August 23, OrBorJor President Anchalee Vanich-Thepabutr signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Baan Nabon School, whereby the OrBorJor will help the school to build on its record of success in teaching science, mathematics and information technology (IT).

The other six schools that have already signed MOUs are Muang Phuket and Talad Neua (strong in science and math), Baan Maireab and Kathu Wittaya (English), Thalang Pranangsang (English and IT) and Cherng Talay (balanced curriculum).

The OrBorJor spent more than 30 million baht in 2005 on recruiting 333 teachers. This year its budget is 20 million baht for 233 teachers, and it has already allocated a further 22.5 million baht to hire the same number of teachers next year.

The OrBorJor has also provided 14,569 exercise books, textbooks and teachers’ manuals to 61 of Phuket’s 64 government schools, including those that have signed MOUs with it, as they had shortages of books.
