The annual Panyaden “Rice planting” activity is held during the farming season.
Our students are prepared for this event by learning about rice seeds, the sprouting stage and how to plant.
This activity helps reinforce for our community the value of rice and importantly the integral value of rice in Thai culture.

It was the very first time of our new Head of School, Kru Suzanne, had the opportunity to plant with us.
Welcome to Panyaden Kru Suzanne, we look forward to the harvesting season!
