Help needed for Thailand village school

Update posted by Alan Sullivan On Jan 27, 2019

Last week we visited Ban Nayong School to take further items for the school, and what a fantastic day it was. I kept wishing every one of the people who have donated to the school could have been there with us.

Bev, Chris ( from Wales) Allen ( photography) Andrew ( transport) Duang, Noi and myself were made to feel very welcome.

We were welcomed by the headteacher, Staff, Director and children.

We were formally welcomed in the Thai language and also in English.

We presented the school with wall fans, dinner trays, A4 paper, footballs, pencils, and cash to purchase polo shirts, and a new tyre for the school bus.

A group of dancers performed several dances. Each dance represented aspects of the history and culture of the school and the local community. The performances were excellent.

After the dance performances individual children gave each of us thank you cards . Beautifully decorated and with individual messages of thanks for our help to the school.

We then had a tour of the school including seeing classrooms , a museum, a working loom and a hand built house which took over 2.years to build.

An amazing, Interesting and Emotional day. It was a privilege to be there.

The staff and children have asked me to pass on their sincere thanks to all who have helped the school. They were overwhelmed that people from different parts of the world have helped the school.

I would like to add my personal thanks to Pin, Duang, Noi, Allen, Andrew, and everyone who has helped the school so far.

We will continue to raise funds for the school and please share this with anyone else who may help as there is still much more we hope to do to help the school.

Hello, just a quick update 😁

Firstly an apology that it's been a while since the last update. The main reason is we have been waiting for the arrival of two of our funraisers to come to Thailand, and will come with us when we visit the school. Chris and Bev ( from Wales) are now here in Udon Thani and we plan to take items to the school in the next 7-10 days.

We will ofcourse take lots of photos of our visit to the school, and put a report on here and on facebook.

The total raised now is £ 610 and once again many many thanks for supporting the school. It is much appreciated.

More good news!! More donations have come in, with amazing donations from Jeff here in Udon Thani, and also from Bev and Chris in Wales who have donated 96 dinner trays to the school . Bev and Chris are visiting Udon Thani in January / February next year and the plan is to bring the new dinner trays with them.

Our total raised so far is 480 pounds! Amazing !! And so far we have purchased school shirts and a printer. We also have 2 wall fans, A4 paper and something for every student ( a surprise treat). ready to deliver soon.

The long awaited visit to the school had to be rearranged as the date we planned was not a good date for the school.( it was their sports day) The school is on holiday this month, and so early dates being looked at are in November.

Again, a big thank you to all who have supported the school. It is making a difference to the school. Please let people know about our fundraiser as the school still needs further support and help.

Further updates when school visit date is confirmed.

Kind regards,

Alan.

Firstly, I apologise for no recent updates. This was due to a minor but a very annoying minor illness. All OK now.

More donations have been made and this is great news. Further donations have been made on this website, and also donations made in person here in Udon Thani, Thailand.

A massive thank you for your support. It is much appreciated.

So far we have raised £420, which is great. We also have other pledges, donations and possible sponsors on the way.

So far we have contributed to the school with new school shirts for every pupil, and a printer. With our remaining funds we will be getting wall fans, A4 paper and a gift for every student in the school. We are also hopeful of having enough funds for increasing the number of dinner trays, and new Football goalposts for the school field.

We hope to visit the school on Tuesday 23rd October to deliver items. People who have donated are very welcome to join us. We will of course take many photos, and share them on the website.

Our fundraising goes on. So please share the Website to anybody who may be interested.

Again, a big thank you to all who have supported the school. It has made a difference To the school , and is appreciated by the school and local community.

Kind regards,

Alan

The new school shirts have arrived and the students look great in the new shirts !

Most of the new shirts were purchased with sponsorship from Moneygram, with the rest of the shirts purchased from the money raised from this website, and people in Udon Thani and UK.

The students, staff and parents have asked me to pass on their appreciation to all who have helped their school.

We still need further funds to help the school, and hopefully we will be able to provide further items for the school in the near future.

Again, many thanks for your support.

We have raised over 300.pounds so far. 125 pounds on the website, and the remainder by donations and pledges here in Udon Thani. Many , many thanks to all who have supported the school. It is much appreciated by the school, and local community.

We had hoped to have visited the school by now to take the items bought by the fundraising. Unfortunately illness has delayed the visit but we hope to visit in early October. All people who have made donations will be invited, and we will take many photos to send to all who donated.

We have already spent some of the money raised. Firstly, on a printer, and also we have given money towards all students receiving a new school shirt, which they now have.

We are continuing to raise more money for the school and would ask if you could pass on our fundraising information to anyone who may be interested in helping the school.

Below is a photo of the printer being presented to one of the staff at the school.

Again, many thanks for your support. It is much appreciated.
