The sweet perfume of jasmine and the kaleidoscopic colours of traditional Thai finery abound in our Songkran celebrations today at ELC. We take time to embrace the new beginning that Songkran opens up to us, and we step in with gratitude and joy.
Our children from Year 4 demonstrated Tak Baat, giving alms to the monks, followed by the tradition of paying respect to one’s elders for our administrators and coordinators, and the Year 5 and 6 children treated us to some beautiful Thai dance performances.
Throughout the day, all our children had the opportunity to participate in Songkran activities, including building sand chedis, paying respects to their teachers, umbrella decoration, and flower garland threading.
As our Term 2 draws to a close, we wish all our ELC families and community a joyous Songkran!
