Phuket’s Kajonkietsuksa School signs MOU with PSU Wittayanusorn



PHUKET CITY: Phuket’s Kajonkietsuksa School has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Prince of Songkla University’s (PSU’s) Wittayanusorn School in Haad Yai, one of the top secondary schools in Southern Thailand.

Phuket Vice Governor Teerayuth Eimtrakul was guest of honor at the signing ceremony, which took place at the Royal Phuket City Hotel late Friday afternoon

Signing the MOU were school principals Thidaporn Laoviseskul and Assoc Prof Waran Tanchaiswad of Kajonkietsuksa and PSU Wittayanusorn schools, respectively.

The MOU follows from a trip to the PSU flagship campus in Haad Yai last December, when Kajonkietsuksa students and teachers attended the Southern Student Arts and Handicraft Fair.

Students graduating from PSU Wittayanusorn School have a one hundred percent success rate at gaining entrance to a university, according to a press release issued by Kajonkietsuksa School after the MOU signing.

“Kajonkiet is very lucky to have a chance to sign this MOU with one of the most famous schools in the country. This MOU will help further develop to the school’s academic staff and our student body…Those who stand to benefit the most from this alliance are the students themselves,” said Ms Thidaporn.

Kajonkietsuksa School Manager Permkiat Ketkul told the Gazette the the MOU was geared toward academic cooperation between the two schools in terms of shared curricula, professional development of teachers, and student exchange.

A new school, Kajonkietsuksa currently has a total of 2,100 students in its English and Thai programs, housed in two large buildings on Chao Fah West road in Tambon Wichit.

The oldest students currently study at matthayom three level, but the school will introduce its first upper-secondary program over the next two years. The MOU with Wittayanusorn School is intended to ensure high academic standards are introduced and maintained throughout all academic levels, Mr Permkiat said.

The school plans to move all of its English-language program students into a new campus now under construction on Phra Phuket Kaew Road in Kathu, near The Heritage housing estate and condominium project, he said.

The move will take place in three phases starting in October next year, when kindergarten students studying in the English program will move to the new facility.

These will be followed by primary and secondary students in the subsequent two years, he said.
