Media in Action was the exhibition put on by Grade 5 Prem
Tinsulanonda International School students at the school recently, with
exhibits, interviews and dancing. Students worked to show the effect media
has on our society, through not only traditional media, like the newspaper
and a videotaped interview with the Managing Editor of the Chiang Mai Mail,
but also how media can affect fashion, slang, opinions and outlooks.

The students worked very hard putting together multi-media
presentations followed by vignettes and dances. From the 1950s rock n roll
Elvis Presley dance routine to the 1970’s Abba Dancing Queen and ending with
Michael Jackson moonwalking and modern day bboy break dancing, the students
worked hard to put on an entertaining and educational show.
Achara Patthong, Managing Director of the HUG dance
academy was there, explaining how she had helped students with their
routines and dances. Additionally, she added, it was one of the teachers at
her academy who had won the bboyz break off at Kad Suan Kaew a few months
As part of the multimedia exhibition, students performed
dances that showed media influences over the decades.
