Loy loy your Krathong

Primary students released krathongs around the school to celebrate this important Thai festival day.

Every year on Loy Krathong, people sing the Loy Krathong song;

November full moon shines,
Loy Krathong, Loy Krathong,
and the water’s high
in the river and local klong,

Loy Loy Krathong,
Loy Loy Krathong,
Loy Krathong is here and everybody’s full of cheer,

We’re together at the klong,
We’re together at the klong,

Each one with this krathong,
As we push away we pray,
We can see a better day.

Students in Primary School had a wonderful Loy Krathong day; celebrating by creating their own krathongs and floating them on the school’s Reflecting Pool and ponds. They handcrafted krathongs out of eco-friendly banana stalks and bread, decorated them with flowers and then released them (loy) to pay respects to the water goddess (Phra Mae Khongka) and make wishes for the coming year.
