Suk San Wan Songkran

Just in time for the Thai New Year Festival ‘Songrkan,’ Building Trust’s first Moving School for Thu Kha Hang Sar students is complete. As the temperatures in Thailand rise and work becomes more difficult due to the extreme heat of 40 degrees, we are very happy to say all work for the first Moving Schools project has been finished.

The new pulley system which is used to open and close the windows throughout the school has been fully installed and explained to the  headmistress. The new window system will allow the classrooms to remain cool during rainy season while providing  protection from the rain and added security.

It will be great to see how the children interact with the changes to their new school when they return to class in June.

I am very happy to share with you photos of Moving Schools 001:

The success of the first Moving Schools project has been proven as Building Trust have been requested to build a further mobile, modular school design in the nearby town of Mae Ramat, Thailand. I look forward to sharing with you photos of a recent Parent’s Teacher’s Association meeting at New Road School, where the design of Moving Schools 002 was discussed and agreed with the school committee.  Work on the build will began shortly, with parents of the school children working with Building Trust to dig the foundation holes for their new school building.
