Celebrating Loy Krathong in the Junior School

One of the most beautiful festivals that takes place in Thailand is Loy Krathong. This is celebrated on the full moon day in November. The word “loy“ means to float, and a krathong is a banana leaf cup. People place a candle and incense sticks in their krathongs and then float them on a local river or pond. As they push away their krathongs, they ask for forgiveness in polluting the waterways and also for good luck in the coming months.

In the Junior School, we will celebrate this event by making Krathongs and singing Loy Krathong songs on Friday 8 November 2019. Students will make their own krathongs and decorate them with flowers, incense sticks and candles. Students can also bring their favorite flowers from home for their own krathongs as well. We warmly invite parents to join on this day and participate in this special activity, please see below for times.
