The history of Phattharayan Witthaya School
Phattharayan Witthaya School was established on 19th Aptil, 1973 according to the announcement of the Ministry of Education by using the name of Sampratuan temple’s abbot; Phrakru Phattharayan (Luang Por Pho) as the school name. Then, Luang Por Pho permitted the school to use Sampratuan temple’s area which is located at 39/10 M.3 Wat Kae sub-district, Nakhon Chaisi district, Nakhon Pathom province as the established area of the school. Also, people living nearby the school donated about 23 rais 1,246 square metres of land to the school. Consequently, the total amount of the school area was 34 rais 1,286 square metres.
In 1973, the school first started to enroll Matthayomsaksa1 students and used the area of the primary school, Nakhon Chaisi School (Wat Kae Rachabumrung), for managing instruction.
After that, in 1974, the Department of General Education announced the abolishment of Nakhon Chaisi School and combined all properties together. Since then, the school has taught the secondary level where Mr. Jeerasak Pisarn was the first principal. The total amount of Wat Kae School’s area was 11 rais 40 square metres. Then, the total amount of the school’s area was 34 rais 1,286 square metres.
In 1993, a group of teachers and Mr. Anun Kongthaworn who was the principal at that time agreed that separating the area was dangerous to students and teachers who had to cross the road to study. So, they returned 11 rais 40 square metres of Wat Kae School’s area. Today, the total area of the school is 29 rais 466 square metres.
At present, Phattharayan Witthaya School where affiliated with the secondary educational service area office 9 is opened to teach Matthayomsaksa 1-6 and Mrs. Laddawan Santinirandon is the principal of the school.
