Mayor Ittipon Khunpluem, Deputy Mayor Wattana Chantawaranon and Deputy Mayor Weerawat Kahkai attended a National Scout Day march at Pattaya School No.7 on Thursday morning.
1,200 scouts, including students from Pattaya School Groups, participated in the event to commemorate the benevolence of King Rama VI as well as to show the greatest respect to His Majesty the King.
King Rama VI originally established the Thai Scout on the 1st of July in 1911, and this date is regarded as National Scout Day.
Scouting was founded in England in 1907, and its original objective was to recruit militias because in many countries there was no Recruitment Act.
Lord Baden Powell who set up the scouting movement, published a book titled ‘Scouting For Boys’ which was adopted as their guide.
‘Scout’ is an acronym for Sincerity, Courtesy, Obedience, Unity and Thrift.
King Edward 1 was the patron of the scouting movement in England.
