Students and teachers at Suksa Song Kroh School
with the ITM foreign students and their teachers.
During the weekend of September 13/14, the International Training Massage School (ITM) visited Suksa Song Kroh School in Chiang Mai with the aim of teaching disadvantaged kids the art of Thai Massage.
Suksa Song Kroh School, located near Nakornping Hospital, looks after 960 children from various backgrounds. Some are from Hill Tribe villages, some from poor Thai families, some are orphans and some have social problems. Also housed are children who have been in trouble with the law and are awaiting their sentences. Adisorn Phuangtong, the director of the school, is committed to teaching the children skills which will be of use to them in their adult lives as well as delivering the basic curriculum. Traditional Thai massage and other trainings will enable students to find jobs when they leave the school.
ITM holds various courses, including teacher training, at their centre on Morakot Road, Hai Yaek Santitham, Chiang Mai. For the weekend visit to the school, 4 teachers and 18 foreign students who were just finishing their courses were invited along for an opportunity to use the knowledge they had gained in order to teach Thai Massage to 32 kids. The weekend proved so popular that four of the teachers from the school became willing students along with the kids. As Kate, who organised the event, said, ‘It’s great to give something back – everyone is happy. Plus, hopefully, we have given some of these kids a future.’
