Children’s day events on January 9 go online

The armed forces will suspend its on-site activities for National Children’s Day due to the fresh outbreak of Covid-19.

Maj Gen Chanwit Atthatheerapong, director of the psychology department at the army’s Directorate of Civil Affairs, said the army would broadcast its armaments and related activities on Facebook Live.

He said the annual children’s day event at Guard Cavalry Division 2, Phaya Thai district had been cancelled and the division would instead host an online fair on Facebook. The show will also be featured on YouTube’s “We are 5.0” channel.

During the live programmes, there will be quizzes and rewards for winners, musical performances commemorating the monarchy, games moderated by actors, a dance show and a guided tour of the Thai army museum.

Prizes will be delivered to the young winners’ houses, said Maj Gen Chanwit.

The Royal Thai Armed Forces has organised a range of online activities for Children’s Day.
