On this International Women's Day, we wanted to share the thrilling news the Class of 2023 is graduating on 16 March, and 47 of the 48 students plan to attend university. This year the school hired a guidance counsellor to help the students discover their passion and pursue their dreams, including attending university. And with a greater focus on STEM (science, technology, education, math) throughout the school, more students have chosen majors in these fields than ever before. This is significant because only 1% of girls in Thailand expect to work in information and communications technology, but the need for such skilled employees is ever-increasing.
The student's STEM majors include IT, computer engineering, computer science, digital design, digital communication, architectural technology, marketing, aerospace engineering, mechatronics and robotics, games and interactive media, public health, chemical engineering, medicine, traditional Thai medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy, animal science, innovative agricultural management, environmental management and safety, logistics, accounting, and forensic science. Additional majors include communication, early childhood education, tourism management, social work and social welfare, and Thai language.
We sincerely thank you for your support which is transforming the lives of these girls and giving them a brighter future than they and their families could have ever dreamed.
