On the 16th of June, six Year 12 students embarked on an Economics trip to Shrewsbury and the Bank of Thailand, as a part of an economics essay competition. The competition, involved essay writing on the topics of sustainability and free trade, after which two exceptional students, Utsav and Veli’s essay were shortlisted to be represented in the event. The occasion was attended by top international schools in Thailand, and we are very proud to say that both of our shortlisted delegates were runner ups, and were awarded by Prof. Thitinan Pongsudhirak of Chulalongkorn University. Following the presentations, the students headed of to Chatrium for an appetizing meal with a fantastic view of the whole city! The day then continued with our visit to the Bank of Thailand, where the student got the opportunity to listed to a discussion of 3 officials, who interacted with students and talked about the initial phases of their career and also the economic history of Thailand.

It was in fact a privilege for all students to have such a learning trip! We are sure our students would move on to be important figures in the economic world!
