Thai students and alumni who study or have studied in Scotland gathered at the British Council on the 11th of May where they were welcomed by a great performance of Mr. Andrew K. McRady, Assistant Principal of Nakorn Payap International School who played the bagpipe followed by Mr. Jon Glendinning, the Director of British Council Chiang Mai who gave the welcome speech.
Mr. Thanawat Tan Manathat, Principal liaison of the Thai Association Students in Scotland (THiSL) said that there are many universities and colleges in Scotland such as University of Edinburgh, St. Andrews University, University of Dundee and The Glasgow School of Art where there is much to gain as a foreign student.
“You won’t feel lonely there because we have a lot of activities” said Mr. Thanawat.

Wing 41 Road now taking applications

Applications for windscreen passes and motorbike decals to use the short cut through the military part of the airport are now being accepted, 6 months earlier than ever before.
Drivers wanting to use the road from the airport to Suthep Road near the Irrigation Canal have always had to wait until November to apply for 12 month passes to use the road, which effectively completes the circle of the inner ring road.
To apply go to the Royal Thai Air Force security gate at the Suthep Road end of the road (not the airport itself) and will be told (in Thai only) how to apply. Foreigners must take their passports.
The RTAF have stated that in principle they will allow their land to be used for the future completion of the ring road along a similar route, but no timescale has been given.


The Yale Spizzwinks perform tonight

The U.S. Consulate General Chiangmai and Payap University present “An Evening of Music” with The Yale Spizzwinks tonight at 7:30pm at the Luce Chapel, Payap University (Mae Kao Campus). Admission is free.
