On May 22, 2018, Minister Counselor Kitinai Nutakul welcomed 5th graders from Hearst Elementary School to the Royal Thai Embassy, where they gave presentation about Thailand and Thai culture under the Embassy Adoption Program.

Representatives from District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) and Washington Performing Arts joined the presentation as the Embassy’s partners under the program. The Embassy also invited Ms. Chotika Kerdsommas and Ms. Sasitra Thammarat, volunteer teachers at Wat Thai Washington, D.C. Sunday School, who taught the students traditional Thai dances, to see the students perform.
