Songkran Celebrations!

What an end to a busy Term 2!

What an end to a busy Term 2! Primary and Secondary School wrapped up the term with an array of celebrations to welcome Songkran!

Songkran celebrations started off with the first-ever Thai Cultural Week with students from both Primary and Secondary schools fully immersing themselves in the vibrant festivities. There were four cultural activity stations with an Esarn theme: These stations included hands-on activities such as making hanging decorations, preparing Som Tum, dressing up in Thai costumes and weaving bowls. The students thoroughly enjoyed participating and learning about Thai culture. From trying their hand at Weaver Flag and Thai Costume Dress-up to mastering the art of Coconut Stilt Walking and participating in the Song Nam Pra Station. Secondary students embraced the cultural experience with equal fervour especially with the Thai Food station (Som-Tum to Thai sweet crispy rice cake and Thai toffee) were bustling with activity throughout the week. A big thank you to our PTG Thai families led by Khun So who provided and organised the delicious Thai deserts!

Celebrations came to a close with an entertaining Songkran Assembly which was thoroughly enjoyed by Primary and Secondary students.

As Songkran Day falls on April 13th every year and marks the beginning of the traditional Thai New Year, it holds significant cultural importance. Especially notable this year, Songkran Day was awarded recognition by UNESCO and inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2023.

Wishing everyone a Happy Songkran!
