Teacher appreciation day at NPI

Students gathered in the school gymnasium to celebrate teacher appreciation day, also known as wai kru. The ceremony was held at Nakorn Payap International School and students paid their respects and thanked the teachers.


US students meet Karen refugees

A group of 21 students from University of Washington answered basic questions about American society and values to a large group of mostly Karen refugees at Mae La camp in Tak province. Students answered questions such as, “Why does America accept refugees?” and “Do refugees have the same opportunities as other people in America?” The Public Affairs and Refugee and Migration Affairs sections of the Embassy arranged this outreach program with former U.S. Ambassador Darryl Johnson who is leading the University of Washington student study group on a three-week exploration seminar called, “Northern Thailand: Tradition Meets the Modern World.”
