Honouring Wai Kru Day


Students express gratitude through participation in Wai Kru…

Students in both Primary and Secondary School participated in Wai Kru ceremonies, honouring Thai traditions and demonstrating gratitude for their teachers. A comparable event in British schools would be Teacher Appreciation Day or Teacher’s Day. Around the world, various countries celebrate and recognise the value of great teachers and the positive impacts they make on students’ learning and well-being. In the Thai Wai Kru ceremony, beautifully arranged ‘offerings’ are symbolic, representing various well-wishes including sharp wit, intelligence, perseverance, ability to learn, discipline, growth and humility. Students and principals reside over the ceremonies, celebrating the fantastic learning that will occur throughout the current academic year and beyond, as well as to impart messages of good luck. In the spirit of Wai Kru, thank you to all of our great teachers for the fantastic work that you do each and every day!
