  • Dear Wall Of Wisdom Board Members,

    My name is Kittipak Tantichot (Land). I am from the International School Bangkok. I have started the club Building Wall of Wisdom ISB, with Panop Phongpettra, (who earlier contacted for permission) where we both are Co. Presidents. Also, Ms. Serrano, our science teacher, is very kind to help us out, in our meetings.

    So far, we have nineteen members, but our club is continuing to grow!

    Bhatis Supasorn (Milo) also designed a logo for the wall of wisdom ISB.

    So far we will be hosting our very first bake sale to support repairment of the school in Nicaruga! We will be having have brownies, cookies, and cupcakes! We will be sending all our proceeds to the wall of wisdom organization.

    Is there anything else that we could help on, to support the wall of wisdom organization? After the bake sale we will be continuing to find new ideas of how to help.

    Thank you very much for introducing us to the Wall of wisdom! We will do all we can to help out.

    Best regards,
    Kittipak Tantichot (Land)
