King Rama VI on Vajiravudh College Bangkok

Royal Policy The royal policy of His Majesty King Rama VI, the founder, was "What I want from the students is not to create all the students to have the same standard as a model student. What I want is to create young men who have pure heart and pure body who willing to work hard for upcoming future no matter what. I don't want young men who passed all the exams with high scores and become honor students. I don't want them to be walking textbooks. What I want is them to be young men whose personalities are honest, loyal, have pure pattern and pure mind and I won't feel any grieve if you tell me that a student can't read or write, can't calculate and has no knowledge of mathematic at all. Only if I know that he was in my school and could compare the differences between a gentlemen and a feminine. I don't want a genius complaining "Many knowledges, but can't survive"(Thai idiom). At this school I want the meaning of studying is to change young men to good citizens and won't let all the knowledges crush their personalities. And I want the education to be enjoyful for the students, so in their futures they would think back that they had fun when they were in this school. I don't want my school to be compared to other schools which have difference purposes. If I had wanted a normal school, i would have built a day school, not a boarding one." Source: wiki
