School addresses behavioural improvement camp after viral social media publish

A respected college in Thailand’s Chanthaburi province has clarified its position after being accused on the ‘Bad Student’ Facebook web page of sending students with low behavioural scores to a navy camp for coaching. The faculty insisted that close supervision throughout this system ensured no violence occurred, and the exercise aimed to enhance students’ discipline.
According to the director of Benchamarachuthit School in Chanthaburi, the behavioural improvement camp was held on March 2 to 3 to assist college students comply with the school’s disciplinary rules. Prior to this, the varsity had set a timeframe (February 1 to 17) for over 300 students with behavioural scores below 60 to participate in neighborhood service actions to extend their scores. By the tip of these activities, about one hundred fifty college students still had scores beneath 60. The college then held a meeting with the student’s parents to seek permission for a hundred and twenty of the a hundred and fifty students to attend the behavioural improvement camp.
Myths of the collaborating students were from grades 9, 10, eleven, and 12. The college assigned the Deputy Director of Human Resources Management, the venture coordinator, and student affairs academics to supervise and monitor the camp activities intently, making certain no violent incidents occurred through the two-day, one-night programme. The safety of the students was emphasised as a top priority in the course of the activities, the director stated.
Consequently, after the completion of the programme (more than three months ago), no complaints have been received, and as of June 6, all grade 9 and 12 college students efficiently graduated, receiving their training certificates with none obstacles for enrolment in greater education institutions.
