From viewing the “City of Virtue” exhibition, students learned and appreciated the power of morality through His Majesty’s teaching on perseverance, humbleness, eagerness to learn, being a good citizen, and self-reliance. Students determined to devote goodwill in honor of Her Royal Highness Princess Mahachakri Sirindhorn’s 60th birthday anniversary. In addition, they also viewed learning platforms on “school of virtue”, “house of virtue”, “field of virtue”, “religious site”, “farm of virtue”, and “market of virtue”, and participated in the fun “online Young Ambassadors of Virtue” activities.
Additional learning activities for participating students include showing of “Royal Father of the Land” and “Her Royal Highness the Educator” videos, essay and painting contests under the theme “Doing Good by Following the Father’s Footsteps”, and a quiz on “Asean Community and the European Union”.
