As part of our Exhibition unit ‘Where we are in place in time’ we plan to take the year 6 students to Chitralada Palace to investigate some of the royal projects which have been developed by His Majesty the King. The palace has many working displays of projects (a working dairy, rice mill, eco-fuel refining system to name a few) which have been designed to improve the health, wealth and lifestyle of people throughout the Kingdom.
All of the Year 6 classes will travel to the palace by bus on Tuesday, February 28, departing at 8.00am. We plan to return to NIST at around 11.30am, in time for lunch. Students who are on meal plan will have their snack provided and others should bring a suitable snack to enjoy on the bus. All students should bring their drink bottle and their hat.
The palace complex has a shop which sells goods that are produced by His Majesty’s projects. We are happy for students to buy some of these products and bring them back to school/home but ask that they do not bring excessive amounts of money in case they lose it.
As we will be asking the students to take photographs of what they see, students are welcome to bring cameras from home. These will however be the responsibility of the individual children who bring them.
We have been extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to visit such an auspicious venue for our field trip. We would appreciate that you discuss with your child the importance of positive and respectful behaviour whilst at the palace.
Likewise, correct dress will be very important – please ensure your child comes in correct school uniform (not PE uniform) for the field trip including suitable covered shoes (with socks) for walking. Those not dressed appropriately may be denied access to the projects by the palace staff so it is very important students are dressed appropriately.
We thank you for your support.
