TOMAS Rogic-s celebrity status continues to grow globally with a group of Thai kids affectionately known as the ‘Thai Tims- recording a stunning tribute to the former Central Coast Mariners whiz.
Students from Triamsuksa School, which partners with the Good Child Foundation in Thailand, posted a tailored rendition of the Rolf Harris classic “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport” for the recently signed Celtic star.
Triamsuksa School supports and encourages the development of Downs Syndrome children in Thailand, with voluntary English teachers Paul Lennon and his partner Pun playing a major role in the music of the ‘Thai Tims-.
Paul and Pun-s life changed in 2003 when their son Berni Lennon was born with Downs Syndrome. When Berni was old enough to begin his education, Triamsuksa School decided they would enroll him if Paul and Pun could help teach the kids English.
Utilising music, the school now produces and records eye-catching tributes to players from the Glasgow giants. As well as Rogic, the ‘Thai Tims- have sung songs about the likes of Joe Ledley, Beram Kayal, and the Club in general.
The school-s love of Celtic FC can be traced back to the time when Scottish teenager Reamonn Gormley taught English at the school during a gap year.
Gormley, a huge Celtic fan, was able to connect with the kids by teaching them tribute songs.
Strengthening the school-s emotional link to Celtic, Reamonn was killed in a knife attack in his hometown of Blantyre, Lanarkshire, in 2011.
