Municipality officials have conducted random inspections and sampled the contents of lunch boxes at three schools in Hua Hin. Mr Jeerawat Prammanee, Permanent Secretary of the Municipality with Mr. Sommai Suksai, Director of Education and Mr. Sangkeap Chamjamras, Head of Education Support and other staff participated in the inspections. The inspections followed reports that budget frauds have occurred in this important service for children at government schools.
Mr. Jeerawat is eager to encourage local administrators to follow the government financial audit guidelines to prevent corruption in this area. The contents of lunches need to be fully described, including the cooking methods and carefully monitored to ensure that standards issued by the Ministry of Education are met. The checks conducted found that each school had a healthy nutritious food with a clear schedule of lunch items and that the schools were meeting the required standards.
