Hua Hin Municipality is celebrating the Thai National Children’s Day of 2013 on 12 January 2013 from 4 p.m. onwards at 19 Rai Queen Sirikit Memorial Park, said the Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin Ms. Busaba Chokesuchart. According to the Deputy Mayor of Hua Hin, on 5 December 1992, His Majesty the King delivered a speech for the Thai National Children’s Day at Chitraladda Royal Palace. He said, “Everybody has his own responsibilities. Children’s major responsibilities include learning and studying; that is, they have to know and understand what they are taught and learn how to work for their future career.
At the same time, children need to behave well, be mindful and think reasonably so as to grow up and become resourceful people for the country.” In other words, children are important human resources of the country because national advancement and security lie in their hands. However, children have to be inquisitive and diligent with self-discipline. They have to spend time wisely and creatively while helping others with compassion and volunteerism if there is any chance.
The more good and dedicating children a country has, the better as a result. To raise awareness among Thai children and youths on self-importance and morality and allow them to enjoy themselves with their peers and parents, the Hua Hin Municipality will oragnize the Thai National Children’s Day festival following the motto given by the Prime Minister Ms. Yingluck Shinawatra, ‘Maintain Self-Discipline, Seeking Knowledge, Enhance Wisdom and Prepare Thailand towards ASEAN Community’. Activities at the festival include fun games and lucky draw for several prizes.
Apart from stage performances by children in Hua Hin, young participants will enjoy free food and drinks, too. For more information on the event, please contact the Education Division of the Hua Hin Municipality at tel. 032 511 047 ext. 402 or 403.
