The school then consisted of only two wooden buildings divided into 8 classrooms, 1 meeting room and 1 instructor room and was named “Anuwat Sueksakharn School” by the king RAMA VI. Later the school was crowded by many more students from nearby areas and could not be used any more so finding the new place for the new school was necessary.
