This exhibition has been held every year for the past four years and is an opportunity for students and lecturers at CMU to present their works to the public.

Photo works displayed are in various styles reflecting human life itself, ranging from nature and landscapes through to fashion and figure photography. The works of noted photographer Ajarn Kan Poonpipat are also on display here.

The exhibition is open from 10.00 a.m to 10.00 p.m. every day until October 23.

Emmy took the test along with her fellow Grade 10 students in June. The paper was comprised of multiple choice questions, short answer, and an essay, and covered science topics chemistry, physics, and biology.

The awards ceremony was held at Shrewsbury International School in Bangkok on October 7. Emmy’s parents, who live in Bangkok, were alongside her for the event.

Emmy said of her award, “It feels good. I studied for a month.” Her science teacher from last year, Gregg Kerr commented, “Emmy is a very special science student. Her teachers gave her guidance in focusing on the syllabus details. However, the hard work in pursuing excellence all came from Emmy.”

Emmy will continue to study hard because she hopes to attend MIT in Massachusetts, USA, or a university which focuses on sciences and engineering in the UK. She would like to become an engineer.
