Urgent plea from a Phuket school for parents to pick up children immediately

Phuket School Issues Plea: We're Flooding, Collect Your Kids Now

Thursday, June 7, 2012
PHUKET: Parents with children at Phuket's mutilingual Kajonkiet International Schools should pick up their children as soon as possible today, say school officials.

Floods on Phuket because of torrential rains have forced the school to close until June 11 at the earliest, officials said today in asking the media to make the urgent plea.

Phuket is being doused by perhaps the most intensive torrential rains that most people can recollect.

Know a Kajonkiet parent? If so please pass on the message


The Bureau of Meteorology in Bangkok has warned of a large monsoon pressure trough that is dumping possibly unprecedented amounts of water over Phuket and southern provinces, triggering flood and landslip warnings, causing traffic chaos and plunging parts of the region into darkness as trees topple power poles.

The eight provinces named today at risk include Phuket, Krabi, Trang, Ranong, Phang Nga, Nakhonsithammarat, Suratthani and Chimphon.
