Social & Cultural News : Chargé d’Affaires welcomes the Organizing Committee of the Summer Program for Thai Language and Thai Cultural Classes, Buddharangsee Thai Community Language School

           On 30 January 2018, Mrs. Thippawan Supamitkitja, Chargé d’Affaires a.i., welcomed the Organizing Committee and Teachers of the Summer Program for Thai Language and Thai Cultural Classes, Buddharangsee Thai Community Language School in Sydney at the Royal Thai Embassy.  Mrs. Watcharee Newell, Advisor of the Program, reported the successful result of this year program.  
            The Summer Program for Thai Language and Thai Cultural Classes is a cooperation between the Buddharangsee Thai Community Language School and Faculty of Education, Chulalongkorn University.  The University has sent teachers from Thailand to teach Thai language, Thai traditional music and dances to the children of Thai descent in Australia for a period of 6 weeks.  This would help them learn more about Thai cultural heritage and keep it alive.  The Summer Program for Thai Language and Thai Cultural Classes has been successfully organized for 26 consecutive years.  The number of Thai students joined the program has been increasing and the program has extended its Thai Language Classes in Gold Coast, Queensland for the second time this year.
