Celebrating the Songkran festival at SPIP was a wonderful way to introduce SPIP students to the culture and traditions of Thailand. SPIP prepared a variety of activities that engaged students and provided them with a meaningful experience.
Water Blessing Ceremony: students pour water on Buddha statues and each other as a way of symbolizing purification and renewal.
Thai Dance and Music: We invited sixth form Thai dance and music performers to showcase traditional dances and music performances.
Food and DIY activities: we introduced students to traditional dessert dishes. Additionally, we organized DIY activities such as creating flower garlands, painting traditional Thai umbrella or making traditional thai kite.
Overall, celebrating the Songkran festival at SPIP was a fantastic way to promote cultural awareness and appreciation among students. With careful planning and preparation, we created a memorable experience for all students involved.
