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.”
Aj.Tiew
The Junior School celebrated this event by making Krathongs and singing Loy Krathong songs on Friday 8 November 2019. Students made their own krathongs and decorated them with flowers, incense sticks and candles. Parents and staff joined in this joyous activity. Our thanks to Aj.Tiew, the Thai Language and Culture teachers, and parents who organized this lovely event.
