Thepharat Pitisant, the Rector, launched the fund raising campaign to build a new five storey building to replace the existing one. On the evening of the feast day the Rector, in collaboration with the past pupils of the school organized a dinner party for 300 tables (chinese-food) and charged each dinner 200 baht. Besides the taste of the best chinese food in town,there were parades of famous singers and a fashion cat walk. The cost of the dinnerpar ty was sponsored by the past pupils.
