An 11-year-old girl from the St Francis Xavier School in Nonthaburi was the first student to sit on the prime minister's seat at Government House on National Children's Day.

 

Officials allowed children to form a long queue at 7.30am to have an opportunity to sit on the seat of the most powerful position in the kingdom, as part of the long-held custom on Children's Day.

 

Pawornrisa Chaiwatmalakul, a student of the St Francis Xavier Muang Thong Thani, was first in the queue.

 

She said she got up at 5am to make preparations and she arrived at Government House at 7am.

 

She said she had a strong urge to sit on the chair and she was very happy to get the chance.

 

She wished Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha good health and extended her moral support for him to continue his work as prime minister.
