On Thursday 25th April 2019, AustCham Thailand together with the Australian community joined the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Hellfire Pass, followed by the Memorial Wreath Laying Service at Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.
Honorary Members John Hancock and Leigh Scott-Kemmis laid wreaths in Kanchanaburi, while wreaths were also laid elsewhere in the country – Harry Usher (Phuket), Dwight Willis (Chiang Mai) and AustCham President Wayne Williams at the Australian International School on Saturday 20th April, 2019.
Additionally, on the day prior to the Dawn service, the Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce and our tourists went to Ban Pu Toei School, a primary school near the Hellfire Pass Museum, to contribute something back to a community nearby in commemoration of ANZAC day. At the school, we donated various essential equipment, i.e., a refrigerator, computers & printers, fans, paint for the school building and rice bags, that would support a proper learning environment for the students. Apart from the donations, we also held several recreational activities together with the students. In this regards, we would like to thank all the donors and association for your kind support to the school and these future generations.
