Earlier this month John Mason International teamed up with IMC World International Mobility Convention and other global removals companies to help provide new facilities for a school in Thailand.
The international removals specialist donated funds towards the initiative, which equipped pupils at Wat Suwankheereekhet School in Phuket with playground facilities, school uniforms, shoes, learning equipment, and the firm’s famed Moving Gang cuddly toys.
John Mason International’s Simon Hood joined the region’s minister for education and other IMC delegates at a special unveiling ceremony at the school.
“The IMC World Mobility Convention aims to give back to communities wherever it holds its annual convention – and this was an excellent example of that,” he said. “It was wonderful to see the children enjoying the new facilities – and getting used to wearing their new school uniform,” he said.
“John Mason International moves people around the world and we are committed to supporting important international projects that reflect our strong family-oriented ethos. The joint venture collected more than ten thousand dollars for Wat Suwankheereekhet School – and this has had a tremendous effect on morale among both pupils and staff there. Children attending the school must wear a uniform but many parents struggle to cover the costs and need extra help to sustain their youngsters’ education. So this is an incredibly worthy cause and we were pleased to provide our backing.”
Wat Suwankheereekhet School in Karon Beach caters for 130 students from grade 7 to 12 and features six classrooms. Pupils are taught by 10 teachers in a range of subjects – including Thai language, maths, English, science, PE and art.
