About the school[edit]


Nawaminthrachinuthit Bodindecha School (Thai: โรงเรียนนวมินทราชินูทิศ บดินทรเดชา)is one of the nine schools founded to honour Her Majesty the Queen on her sixtieth birthday. It was founded on July 31, 1992. At the beginning, the school was managed by Khunying Lakkana Saengsanit (คุณหญิงลักขณา แสงสนิท), the then director of Bodindecha (Sing Singhaseni) School (โรงเรียนบดินทรเดชา (สิงห์ สิงหเสนี)). Nawaminthrachinuthit means devotion to the queen of the 9th King. Bodindecha is taken from the name of Army General Chao Phraya Bodindecha, who is also known as Singh(สิงห์), or simply Sing, from his family name of Singhaseni (สิงหเสนี). During the reign of Chakri Dynasty King Rama III (พระบาทสมเด็จพระนั่งเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว 1824–1851), General Singh led an army from Bangkok to put down the rebellion of Lord Anouvong of Vientiane (ปราบกบฎ เจ้าอนุวงศ์ เวียงจันทน์) (1826–1828).
