The MoU signed was developed under Phuket’s participatory education management, or “Partnership School Project”, explained a report of the Prime Minister’s meeting by the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department (PR Phuket).
The MoU was developed with the goal of developing Phuket children with English-language skills, digital technology skills and entrepreneurial skills ‒ and develop them into “Tong Ho people”, which in the Phuket dialect means being a good person in every way.
Phuttamongkolnimit School is a charity school licensed to operate under the Office of the Private Education Commission (Opec). The school provides education to students for free.

The MoU stipulates that that signatories are together to manage and prepare students from kindergarten to vocational level by providing teaching in English in line with the economic development direction of Phuket, which relies mainly on the tourism business sector, the PR Phuket report noted.
