Phuket students return gold, bring tears of joy to Filipino’s eyes

PHUKET: Local students at Phuket Rajabhat University brought a Filipino to tears earlier this week after turning in a gold bracelet that he had lost. The item is said to be worth about 135,000 baht.

One of the students found the treasured piece of jewellery and immediately turned it in to a teacher at the school.

“I went home to Patong and noticed that I wasn’t wearing any gold at all, so I went back to the school to look for it,” Philippine national Rainelle John Causing told the Phuket Gazette.

Mr Causing, who had been playing basketball in the gym earlier, searched the area but found nothing.

“I was so hopeless. I thought my last option was to ask for help from the physical education teachers in the gym. I approached one of the female teachers, named Jay, and she told me that a student had found it and given it to her.

Mr Causing attempted to pay a reward, but the students and teachers reportedly turned it down.

“They were just proud of their Thai students’ honesty,” Mr Causing said.

“I just cried and hugged Jay. I was so thankful.”
