of Her Royal Highness Pravimadather Krompra Suddhasininart.

in Pathumwan District of Bangkok. The primary objective
of this orphanage was to provide residential care for
the orphaned boys and girls including the children who
could not be adequately looked after by their own parents.
operation of this orphanage was subsequently terminated.
After which, the Siamese Women Association under the
leadership of Thunphuying Yommaraj had raised fund from
the public for setting up a new orphanage on the same
location. It was then named “Benjamarachutit School”
and started its services on October 23, 1911. This school
had been under the patronage of H.M. Queen Sripatcharintra
and was built up to serve as a memorial to H.M. King
A plot of land at Phayathai District
(the present location) was conferred through the Bureau
of Crown Property, together with the royal fund of
200,000 Baht, to be utilized particularly for welfare
and education of the orphaned and needy children.
As the results, Benjamarachutit School was then moved
to the new location while its name was changed to
“Chart Songkroh School” meaning “the National Welfare
School” . This child welfare facility was graciously
opened by Her Royal Highness Somdej Prapanwatsa Aiyigajao
on June 24, 1941

transferred from the Bangkok Municipality to this
Department on November 4, 1948, under the condition

land on purpose to provide education, particularly
for orphans and disadvantaged children”
Afterwards, its name has been once more modified to
