Sunset was originally established inside a factory to provide education for the employees. Most recently, in order to accommodate the growing number of children wanting to come to the school, and to save on rent, it was moved into slightly larger premises which are both home and workplace for the school staff.
As with the other night school, most of the older children work during the day. Some of the younger children attend Burmese learning centres during the day, and, a small number attend Thai schools. For children attending Thai Schools, Sunset provides the opportunity to engage with the Burmese curriculum and keep their further education and employment options open whether they return to Burma or remain in Thailand. A small group of Thai children also attend Sunset in the evening, in addition to their regular classes in daytime. Their parents recognize the high standard of education provided by Sunset, and they also value the acquirement of a third language for their children..
Visitors to Sunset are usually struck by the warm atmosphere, the dynamic teaching and the ability of the staff to cater for diverse groups of learners.
