Paying Respect to the Sewol Ferry Victims

May 21, 2014

NIST-at-Sewol-Ferry-Memorial-01As many around the world have seen in newspapers, television programs and internet posts, the South Korean ferry Sewol tragically sank off the southwestern island of Jindo on April 16. The death toll has since reached almost 300, with many still missing. The majority of victims were students from Danwon High School who were on their way to a four-day field trip to Jeju Island, Korea.

On behalf of NIST Community, our school visited the Korean Cultural Center on May 21st to express our deepest condolences to Danwon High School. Mr. James, Khun Nirut, Khun Poonam, two Korean teachers and student representatives (Y11 Korean students Jae Min Shin and Caitlyn (Gyu) Kim) visited the group memorial altar that was set up in Bangkok this morning. Memorial books containing letters of condolence to from NIST students and teachers were also offered to the students of Danwon High School and their  family members.
