SPLASH-tastic Fun: Soi 20 Campus Celebrates Songkran
Thai New Year, also known as Songkran, is a time of joy and celebration in Thailand. At the Soi 20 campus, our young learners dressed up in traditional Thai attire and floral shirts to celebrate the Thai New Year.
The students participated in the traditional water pouring ceremony, where they poured water on the hands of their teachers, TAs, and nannies as a sign of respect and to ask for blessings. This is a significant part of the Songkran celebrations and is believed to wash away bad luck and bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.
The water pouring ceremony was followed by a fun-filled water fight, where everyone got to splash water and enjoy the cool water on a warm day. This activity is a highlight of the Songkran celebrations and is a way of bringing people together and creating a sense of unity and joy.
The Soi 20 campus celebration was a fantastic way to wrap up Term 2, and the young learners had a blast participating in the cultural activities and having fun with their friends. It was also an opportunity for them to learn more about the Thai culture and traditions and appreciate the rich heritage of the country.
In conclusion, the Songkran celebration is an essential part of Thai culture, and it was heartwarming to see the young learners at the Soi 20 campus embracing and enjoying the festivities.
It is a testament to the school's commitment to providing a well-rounded education that goes beyond academics and includes cultural and social learning experiences.
