This morning St. Andrews International School held Tribute Ceremony Assemblies for the late HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
His Majesty’s compassion and virtues were shared through various activities including a tribute speech by Mr. Paul, a Thai poem written and read by the Thai department and an English poem by a Year 13 student. Additionally, the assemblies reflected on a video highlighting His Majesty’s dedicated work and a short video summarising the school’s activities relating to the tribute to His Majesty.
Over the course of the last few weeks the St. Andrews community signed a condolence book, while groups of students and teachers performed respect in front of HM the King's photo. Several service-minded activities were implemented among staff and students which included making black ribbons, reading for the blind and cleaning the street with support received from Vadhana District Office. The assembly concluded with a touching rendition of the Royal Anthem.
His Majesty King Bhumibol lived his life of giving and helping his subjects and had never expected anything in return but only the improvement and well being of his subjects' lives.
He truly reigned in righteousness and always looked for ways to do useful things for the people.
