Educational Metamorphosis

          During the reign of King Rama VI, there were thirty-two residential sites for King Rama V’s Royal family and entourage at Suan Sunandha. Princess Suthasineenat, who was one of King Rama V’s consorts, resided at the Sai Sutha Nopadol Mansion in 1924, which is still a one of the six present excellent existing mansions.

          Princess Suthasineenat had ladies in waiting at court, so she commissioned the construction of Nipakarn School for them to learn both etiquette and handicrafts.

          During the reign of King Rama VII in 1937, His Majesty’s representatives considered Suan Sunandha as residence of the Prime Minister, members of the Cabinet, and members of the Parliament. Through deliberation, the cabinet decided to use the site for educational purpose instead, and passed a resolution to dedicate Suan Sunandha as a school for girls named “Suan Sunandha School” on May 17, 1937. Over many years, Suan Sunandha has then developed and expanded to cover various fields of education. Since her inception, she has developed through the following stages:

                “Suan Sunandha Palace” a place that stands as a monument for the love King Chulalongkorn Rama V held for Hey Royal Highness SunandhaKumariratana who drowned in a boat accident while she was following his Majesty the king. The loss affected his Majesty deeply and with his love he constructed a palace and school as a memorial for his beloved lost wife. The place was given the name “Suan Sunandha” meaning Sunandha Garden. Suan Sunandha turned into Suan Sunandha College in 1932 during the Thailand political transition. It was under the administration of what has now become the Ministry of Education to serve as the place for education for women to serve as the place for education for women.

                In 1937 “Suan Sunandha Coolege School” was opened for students from a variety of places such as The Benjamarachalai School, Chotiwet School and Petchaburi Wittaya Longkorn School. The school opened for Grades 4 – 14.

                       In 1958 the Ministry of Education transformed Suan Sunandha College School to Suan Sunandha Teacher College. The primary and secondary education became a demonstration school. In 1990 Royal Highness King Bhumibol Adulyadej had given the college its new name as “Suan Sunandha Rajabhat Institute”. The school became “The Primary Demonstration School and The Secondary Demonstration School of SuanSunandhaRajabhat Institute”. The name Changed once more in 2004 when the Rajabhat intitute became a university. The schools then came to be know as “The Primary Demonstration School and The Secondary Demonstration School of SuanSunandhaRajabhat University”

                  In 2008 the primary and secondary education was merged together under the name “The Demonstration School of SuanSunandha Rajabhat University” a leading educational institute that aims for excellence in every aspect.
