The Royal Thai Embassy in Brunei Darussalam held a screening of the official opening of the 3rd Princess Maha Chakri Award (PMCA) Forum in Bangkok via virtual conference yesterday.

Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn presided over the two-day forum, which provides a platform for the 2019 award recipients to share their experiences and best practices.

Permanent Secretary (Core Education) at the Ministry of Education (MoE) Dr Shamsiah Zuraini Kanchanawati binti Haji Tajuddin and Thai Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam Wanthanee Viputwongsakul were present.

The Royal Thai Embassy invited three local teachers, who were previous PMCA recipients.

They are 2019 awardee Hajah Noorliah binti Haji Aspar, 2017 awardee Lim Soh Ngo and 2015 awardee Hajah Ratnawati binti Haji Mohammad.

Hajah Noorliah shared the projects and programmes in which she was involved in and future plans.

Hajah Noorliah and the other recipients were chosen for the award through a selection process set by the PMCA Foundation with the education ministries from all ASEAN member countries and Timor-Leste.

The biennial award was established in 2015 during Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn of Thailand’s 60th birthday celebration.
