The Permanent Secretary of Education, Mrs. Panita Kamphu Na Ayutthaya, chaired a P.R. activity for "Doing Good and Volunteer Spirit for International Recognition" Project on 16 May 2013 at the National Scout Office. Also, the Secretary General of the World Scouts, scouting executive and personnel attended the activity.
Mrs. Panita, as the project's chair, said that this was a mission concerning the formulation of systems and regulations for registering new scout members. The scout board meeting, having acknowledged the project, distributed 100,000 books to young scouts for recording good things deeds so that they can write about the good thing they do every day. In so doing, the scouts will be aware of good behavior, ethics, morality, dedication and honesty -- a good image for both Thai and international scouts.
The budget for launching this activity does not belong to the Thai government but it is from a circulating fund for general administration. The initial amount was a donation of 1,300,000 baht donation for printing books for recording good things.
The P.R. campaign started at the beginning of this month and the official launching will be on 11 June at 5 p.m. at the statue of King Rama VI, the Ministry of Education. The Minister of Education Mr. Phongthep Thepkanjana will preside over the event.
