IEP celebrates Loy Krathong

One of the main benefits of the IEP program is its access to unique learning experiences. This week, students learnt about the importance of the Loy Krathong festival and its place in Thai culture.


Students learnt new vocabulary, Loy meaning ‘to float’ and Krathong meaning ‘a floating platform,’ and discussed the purpose of this festival in seeking forgiveness from the Goddess of Water and looking forward to new beginnings.


It was a great opportunity for students to embrace the rich culture of Thailand, whilst also developing their English language skills in a creative way.


*As part of Prem’s commitment to sustainability, we made our Loy Krathong’s using natural materials including banana trunk, leaves and flowers.
