About 50 Parents, village head, commune leader, CPS teacher, primary school principal, primary school teachers, commune council member in charge of women and children affair, etc. attend the meeting for discussion.
Thnol Tasaeng community preschool was opened for operation 3 years before by using the space of pagoda. When there’s ceremony, teacher has to move to teach under the tree. This year, the primary school principal gave a part of teacher’s room for her to use but it’s too narrow and another part use for storage to keep food for children’s breakfast. So, it seems not to be a classroom, a proper place for preschool children. So, they want to ask CYK to support for school building as the number of children increase every year.
The primary school principal said there’s 2 building, one with 3 classrooms and another has 2 classrooms. But one building with 2 classrooms was built in 1962 and be very old, it nearly collapses. Now, the win is too strong, so they’re worry that it may cause danger to children and will stop using it from 2020. In primary school, student from G1 to G6 has 196p (F: 101p), 6 teachers and principal. There are 2 shifts of teaching and principal also teach student.
The village head informed that there’s 278 families, 1,225p (F: 634p) and 79 children (3 to 5 years old) and 165 children (from 0 to 5 years old).
Village head, primary school principal, pagoda committee, primary school supporting committee, parent representative, commune leader and officer from DOE joint together to prepare the proposal, and estimate the budget for the building.
