FSNSS Closure


Friends of the Special Needs School Samui was a separate group working together to aid setting up and building of the new school on Koh Samui for autistic and other intellectually and/or physically challenged children.


It is not without a touch of sadness that we inform you the FSNSS will cease to function with effect from 31 December 2016. This is largely due to health concerns of the founder and main voluntary organiser, David Wilkinson.

Some four years or so we came together as a group in order to encourage financial support and awareness for the then unknown Special Needs School here on the Island.

No one then imagined the amazing response that would follow and through the tireless efforts and dedication of the many organisations and individuals who have been involved, the school foundation is now proudly the owner of it’s own purpose built school in Bang-Rak.

It is sincerely hoped that everyone will continue to support them.

A huge “Thank You” to you all.

Yours sincerely on behalf of all FSNSS members past and present,

David Wilkinson


Nov/Dec 2016: Rotary Club of Samui are currently completing a security wall and gates to the school, which, if the rains hold off, should be completed in the near future.
